About the Author

Two-time Computer Press Association winner David D. Busch has been demystifying arcane computer and imaging technology for PC and Macintosh owners since the early 1980s. As a writer, photographer, and contributing editor for ten leading computer magazines, he has more than 100 books and 2500 articles to his credit. In the computer and imaging field, he's been a contributing editor, columnist, or writer for magazines and online publications as diverse as CNet, HomePC, MacWorld, Internet World, NetGuide, Windows Magazine, Windows Sources, Computer Shopper, and many other publications. A PR consultant for Eastman Kodak Company for nearly 20 years, Busch has published photography articles under his by-line in Popular Photography and Imaging, Petersen's PhotoGraphic, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer and other photo magazines. His photos have appeared on the covers of magazines, and in both print and television advertising. The graduate of Kent State University operated his own photo studio and was a principal in CCS/PR, Inc., one of the largest public relations firms based in San Diego, before becoming a full-time writer/reporter for the computer industry. A regular in many of the early computer magazines, such as Interface Age, Creative Computing, and Microcomputing, Busch launched his book-writing career in 1983 with pioneering programming books aimed at owners of Commodore, Apple, Tandy, and IBM PC computers. Indeed, his initial book was one of the first ever bundled with magnetic media—a cassette tape of his own programs.
