3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but not the best
This magazine is pretty average as far as outdoor photography goes. If you're a beginner or hobbyist, I recommend trying out a subscription for a year or two, as much of the information and features are geared toward the amateur photographer -- establishing technique, lighting tips, etc. For a more serious or experienced photographer, this publication is really only interesting about 1-2 issues a year. The photographs are good, but few are examples to aspire to or admire. There are others out there to take example from - "Nature Photographer" does a better job, and so does "Outside" magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Magazine Dedicated to Outdoor Photography
Outdoor Photographer is the essential how-to and where-to magazine for the outdoor photographer. I would recommend it for all levels of photographic skill, although most discussions of technique are suited to intermediate to advanced skill levels. There is only occasional discussion of the most basic techniques, as would benefit beginners. There are, however, so many great ideas on where and what to photograph that I think beginners can get a lot out of the magazine as well. And you won't be a beginner for long. The "outdoor" in the title does not refer exclusively to nature photography. Most of the magazine is dedicated to nature photography,but there are frequent articles on travel, location, and other sorts of outdoor photography, as well.

In Outdoor Photographer you will find how-to articles on lighting, exposure, filters, gear, preparing yourself and your gear for the elements -be they arctic cold or rain forest heat and humidity, along with some advice specifically for digital cameras and the digital darkroom. And you will find this information for everything from close-up to landscape photography. Outdoor photographer focuses primarily on 35 mm photography, with an occasional article on medium format. The discussions of exposure, lighting and locations are applicable to all formats of photography, however. And there is George Lepp's monthly question and answer column for those questions on just about any photographic or digital imaging subject that are not answered elsewhere.

And now for the best part. Outdoor Photographer tells you where to get great outdoor photographs. "Favorite Places" is a one-page feature in every issue that tells you about a great place in the United States to photograph, what there is to see, and what time of the year is best. Be sure to save those in case you ever have the time and means to visit them all. In addition to "Favorite Places" there are featured articles in every issue that detail a place to photograph, how to get there, what to take, what to photograph, etc., frequently written by well-known nature photographers and accompanied by some of their terrific photographs. I counted 3 such articles in the last issue of OP that I received. If you are a photographer or hobbiest who is able to travel a lot, Outdoor Photographer is a terrific bargain just for the locations. And if you don't travel much, it will help you photograph your backyard and local parks and gardens well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very unbalanced coverage!
If you want a generalized photography magazine that covers protraiture, product, glamour, or wedding/events photo techniques...read the cover before you buy this magazine. If you want a fine instructional magazine devoted to outdoor and travel photography, there may not be a better one in print. Filled with beautiful photos that, more often than not, have details about equipment/settings used to make them and where they were taken. I've been a subscriber for years and will continue.

2-0 out of 5 stars A How-To Magazine for Creating Cliches
The typical photo magazine aimed at amateurs is 90% about equipment and 10% about art. And that's a very sucessful formula, as most amateur "photographers" are really equipment junkies and not artists.

Outdoor Photographer is more like 50:50 gear and technique. There's still a lot of equipment writing- which tripod, which lens and so forth- but a significant amount of editorial space is devoted to technique as well. Unfortunately most of it is about creating the same stale and hackneyed nature photos that fill the pages of this and other magazines: Heavily filtered, over saturated color images of senic vistas that make for nice posters but say very little about the subject.

In some sense the notion of there being an "outdoor" genre of photography is rather silly; can you imagine a magazine called "Indoor Photography"? Good photographers are good photographers, and can see images wherever they are- and with whatever equipment they use. For every Ansel Adams who obsesses over technique there's a Cartier-Bresson, who couldn't be troubled to get his exposures quite right, and truth be told, Cartier-Bresson was the better of the two when it came to art.

5-0 out of 5 stars NOT packed with advertisments!
I have looked at many photography magazines - many of them are just filled with ads....not what an amateur is looking for. I wanted indepth articles, helpful tips and information to help me improve my craft. I found it here. I read every issue cover to cover and back again. I find helpful information in every issue. I highly recommend this magazine - even if you aren't purely an "outdoor" photographer. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars one of the staples of photography
Popular Photography seems to be one of the magazines that all photographers subscribe to (the only one I've found more professionals subscribe to is Shutterbug). The magazine is full of product reviews and technical articles, and there is a column on just about every area of photography. One major fault of the magazine is that about a third to half the magazine is advertising and mail order shops. It's good to know where to go if you want to purchase a new camera, but it can be a bit much. The other fault is that there are no articles covering the artists or any nontechnical issues. This magazine has a lot of potential to be useful to the photographer, but you often times find it falling a bit short.

3-0 out of 5 stars Too many ads! Not enough info on improving photos!
I was a little disaapointed in this magazine... over half of the magazine is ads..... there are maybe 4-5 main articles in each issue.... just seems a little light on subject matter.... would love to see more on getting better photos in tough situations... new technology and overall more information on photography....if you like to check out the ads on new photography equipment then you'll love this magazine... otherwise I say pass....

1-0 out of 5 stars garbage
I am cross posting this most of these photo magazines are published by the same company under a different name. I have read them ALL!

First, 77%+ of this magazine is advertisements. That leaves under 25% of material. The material that does remain is bare minimum informational and tends to just show "pretty photos". Coverage on camera gear appears skewed since EVERYTHING is GREAT. This leads me to believe advertisers sway them.

In short, this is an advertising pamphlet with a cover price. If you need information, typing "photography" in any search engine will give you more information in 30 seconds then a 10 year subscription.

I wrote the main company about the 77% issue and they stated that they are aware of the amount of advertisement and quoted a percentage higher then I stated. That this was necessary to continue producing a magazine of this quality.

Quality? OK, if this is quality then I don't know what to say other then the semi professional magazines are free of charge from the publishers, contain actual subjective information, and are produced on high quality paper with fewer than 30% advertising.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a big fan of the magazine...
Very basic info in every issue. Ok for someone who has never used a camera but not very useful for someone who wants to expand creatively and technically.

5-0 out of 5 stars to begin and continue with
i heard of this magazine even before i came to this country and it never disappointed me ever since i subscribed it. i valued it most among other photography magazines i subscribed to. the reason is that i find this magazine have "real stuff". for equipment, it has a detailed and objective test. the articles are not just obscure evaluation u find elsewhere, for instance, it once said:"...based on our field and lab test, this amateur lens gives a better performance than its professional counterpart...", whereas in other magazines, what u find probably is "this lens is good, and that one is nice...". for photo tips, it is more insightful than just "sunny 16" or "always use a tripod". u can find the photographer's own consideration as to why put the composition this way but not that. in all, i think this magazine is for anyone who is interested in photography to begin and continue with ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Only Photography Magazine I've Ever Loved!
I must admit that although I love photography, and have been taking pictures for decades, I've never actually liked reading photo magazines...until I got into digital cameras, and read back issues of this magazine. I love this magazine! It's answered so many of my digital photography questions, and has loads of product info on cameras, printers, scanners, etc. It also keeps you updated on all the new prodcuts coming out.

The reviews of products are not for those who want hard hitting criticism, however. They seem to believe it's best not to come right out and say something is not the best about a product, and this very well may be ad money talking. But I personally don't believe this is such a bad thing--most products have those who love it and those who hate it. I just hope PC Photo refuses to review a product that has MAJOR problems.

I've been into digital photography for 6 months, so I guess I'm still a beginner. But for some reason I doubt I'll outgrow this magazine. I've read more advanced digital photography mags, and they don't interest me. This one suits me best, and probably always will. It keeps me up to date, and is not too complex. I'd rather be taking pictures than reading about how to do so.

One word of warning about subscriptions--I got a 4 year subscription of this mag for a very low price at eBay. After the max. time of delivery--16 weeks--I still had yet to receive an issue. I have never received an issue from that seller--tonycia1. You can't leave feedback after 16 weeks, and both eBay and PayPal refuse to do anything about the situation after 16 weeks. That's one reason I left eBay. So, be careful of getting magazine subscriptions off of eBay.

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent for rank beginners and reading ads, not much else
This is a great magazine for two groups of people, absolute beginners and people that like to read advertisements from photo shops.

It's not that it's really a bad magazine. The one or two actual articles in each issue are usually pretty good. They are usually written in a style aimed squarely at absolute beginners in most cases. The two or three monthly columns are usually somewhat interesting as well.

However, the "reviews" of cameras and other photo equipment in each issue can hardly be classified as reviews. They are basically expanded versions of the press release given by the company. I can't recall one "review" they have printed that ever said anything remotely negative about a camera in the magazine, which is rather suspicious.

And, as with most other Photo magazines, about 1/2 of each issue is devoted to advertisements from Photo equipment retailers, more than a few of which are of dubious reputation.

That being said, I do enjoy the magazine at times. It's good for about a 15-20 minute read each month at most. The only reason I did not give the magazine a lower score is due to the fact that I receive the magazine at a greatly reduced price. If I had to pay the actual subscription price listed here, I would probably award it 2 stars if not 1.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tutorials are Great
I love digital photography. I'm always looking for new ways to edit and share my photos. This magazine provides great tutorials and information on dealing with digital photography. After reading an article I find myself saying : "I didn't know I could do that with my camera!". This magazine is a must for anyone interested in digital photography.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best PC Photo magazines
This is one of the best magazine for learning how to take great pictures with your digatal camara.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beginning Digital Photography
This magazine is great for beginning to intermediate digital camera users. I think that it is especially great for beginners. There are articles about how to choose the right camera for your purpose and about what all the specifications mean. There are question and answer sections that answer a broad range of questions including how to avoid common computer errors and how to format different digital devices. I like the photo editing tips, which explain some of the more elusive aspects of most digital photo editing programs and how to use them. The photo-editing program described most often is adobe photoshop and photoshop elements; however, quick advice is also give about how to apply these tips to other programs. For more advanced film camera users, there are tips for how to make the same quality image with a digital camera and stories of professional photographers who have switched to digital. However, most professional photographers will use macs to edit their photos rather than PCs and more advanced photo editing software. Mostly this magazine caters to amateur photographers and the lower end photo-editing programs that are most often used. There are also reviews of new gadgets, which are often fun to read, and plenty of market place like advertising in the back. This magazine is what it advertises and nothing more. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Hackneyed
American Photo began as a magazine devoted more to photography than to gear, as an alternative to the gear obsessed magazines like Pop Photo and Photographic. It has evolved into a magazine that divides its pages between equipment obsession and cheesy "glamour" photography that tries for art and delivers soft core porn. No stars.

3-0 out of 5 stars Arrives Tattered and Torn
I wish they would concentrate more on the art and reportage aspect of photography rather than spending so many pages on fashion-related fluff. It probably has a lot to do with who gives them the most income. I can't recommend subscribing, because each and every issue I ever got arrived tattered and torn as if someone used it to line the bottom of a hamster cage. It's no fluke; Popular Photography arrives in my mailbox in pristine condition, so why not American Photo? And forget about calling customer service to get a replacement issue. This publication is all too busy making the big bucks to listen to the little people.

2-0 out of 5 stars Glam and Gear: Unexciting
The magazine is mostly glamour photography and gear reviews.

Even if glamour photography is what you're interested in, however, the articles are generally biographical, not instructional, in nature.

The gear reviews are typical of magazine reviews in that the reviewers don't want to bite the hand that feeds them. Consequently, virtually all reviews will be very positive, which renders them fairly useless if you want an honest feature by feature analysis and comparison to the competition. If that is what you want, find a good website (like dpreview).

If what you want is to lust after all the almost-latest gear (without actually knowing what's best) and fashion photography that you can't do (because the magazine doesn't teach you), this is your mag. Otherwise, get your gear reviews online and your fashion photography and portraiture from pro mags dedicated to those topics.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE PERFECT PHOTOGRAPHY MAGAZINE ALMOST
I say almost due to the fact that Aperture gives them a good run for the money. You know those photography magazines with about 10 pages of pictures and articles and the rest is advertising? This is not it! If you enjoy a magazine that delivers informative photographing techniques, get this one! If you are interested in seeing the work of other photographer's, get this magazine! If you want a hot collectible, GET THIS MAGAZINE!!! Yes there are ads in here, but not a ton of them. For you guys (and girls) out there who love to see the occasional beautiful star photographed, get this magazine. One of the aspects of this magazine that I like, is the fact that the photo layouts are sometimes full page, unlike some magazines where you have to get out a magnifying glass to view the photos. And this one IS a hot collectible, though the French version of it is an even hotter collectible. Whether it's nature, special effects, or provocative photography, this one is a superb magazine. In short, this one is a must get for the photography fan.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK worth the price
I think for the editors choice issues and equipment reviews this is worth $13 a year. I was pleased with all my purchases base on equipment review in this magazine.

The is a mostly about glomore photos and photo journalism. If you are not intrested in this area of photograpy than this is not the magizine for you. Lots of ideas about interior photograpy, and model photography. A lot of writing about the buzz in the photo world. Also quite a bit about photographes bios or resume, not a lot about there technique. Yet it is only 13 dollars a year and I see an image in each issue worth paying 13 dollars to see in each issue. There are a lot of ads, but good ads which are quite entertaining.

Not a techincal or method guide in any way.
good overview of the newest and best equipement.
Also good photo book reviews
Good political photoessays too. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars simply the magazine for photographers
This is the best photo mag for those of us passionate about photography. It has long in debth articles on technique and equipment. Moreover it features "how to" examples from some of the best fine art photographers of our time. It is thus quite different from other magazines that feature some no name staff writer pretending to be Paul Strand. This does make this magazine perhaps less than ideal for the first time casual shutterbug trying out his/her first pocketcam. But for all of us striving to do good photography this magazine has no peer. It is not a glossy magazine and its print quality is rather low. It is a far cry from Phototechnik International or Spoon, but it is about the creating of rather then the displaying of photographs. Having read every photomagazine in the english and german speaking worlds in the last 15 years this is the best.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine!
While this magazine may not posess the high gloss pages, and gorgeous images taht are typical of photgraphy magazines, they are full of good information that rarely, if ever repeats it's self. They cover a broad range of artists so you also get views of photography from many angles. I Highly recomend it!

4-0 out of 5 stars The fift star comes when I get all the back issues!
This is a Techniques Magazine! They do not repeat themselves, so if you can find older issues around, buy them too.

Do not expect lots of inspiring pictures, only writers who know what they are talking about.

The topics are different and well chosen. They are important for the serious amateur, if he is using digital or large format.

"Shoppers' disease" is one of the many topics that other magazines stay away from. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for any serious filmmaker
Whether you are a technical guru or someone who's emphasis is on the words, any serious filmmaker who takes his or her craft seriously will love American Cinematographer. The official magazine of the American Society of Cinematographers, this magazine gives you in depth interviews with DPs and Directors on the technical approach towards the shooting of the picture. They cover not just lab soups and lighting techniques, but also the approach to the script, design notes on how to visually approach the script - in other words, a great detailed overview of how this particular crew of filmmakers went about creating the visual language of the film. And not just film - as technology advances, and more films are shot on video, this magazine gives the same great coverage to those pictures as well - from Star Wars to Anniversary Party. While it's true that there are only so many films that AC can cover each issue but I think you'll end up feeling like I do - that I wish they could cover them all! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Pretentious and Plodding
Aperture is THE premier photographic magazine today... which is to say it embodies all the fashionable cliches and pretentions of the contemprary post-modern scene.

Out of focus shots? Ragged borders? All here. Family snapshots reinterpreted as high art? We got 'em. Egocentric self-portraits by the dozen? Step right up.

The "art" in Aperture is uniformly artless, deadly dull, and devoid of any human feeling. But that's what the critics are selling these days.

3-0 out of 5 stars Joyless Art
This magazine is full of ART (sound of trumpets here). The photographs are unfailingly serious, moody, joyless affairs. There is no room in its pages for smiles, love, or happiness.

As an example, the 50 year retrospective in 2002 had at least three photographs (all technically excellent) of bodies and one of an amputated foot (also technically excellent). Tucked in one corner of one montage was the only smiling face in the entire two issues of the retrospective.

So, if you like your art dark and depressing, subscribe. I'm looking for something a bit brighter.

5-0 out of 5 stars ARTISTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AT ITS BEST AND A COLLECTIBLE
Aperture has one of the most outstanding reputations for bringing its readers the best in artistic photography. I own several editions of the publication which are put up in areas where they will be kept cool and dry because the magazine is so highly collectible. Some editions on auction have netted hundreds of dollars. And Aperture covers a wide array of subjects, from mailboxes out on country roads, to architecture, from rare plants, to bizarre special effects, Aperture brings you photography you'll want to look at again and again and again. You'll get photographs from some of the world's most renowned photographers, and you'll get them on pages so pristine, you'd think you were viewing them at a gallery. If you want a magazine that gives you "The All" in photography, Aperture has it. Oh, and one more note, from time to time Aperture offers its customers the opportunity to purchase rare collectibles, many of which are autographed by the photographers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pleasingly Interesting
Aperture mixes interesting pictures, that are satisfying to the eye with more mainstream pictures that would appeal to all categories of photographers. Aperture is for those who do not like there pictures characteristic of so called "normal family pictures" These pictures are amazing... Aperture magazine is amazing...If you are thinking that it is not worth the price, think again because Aperture will definantly have you taking and seeing your pictures in a whole new light. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Shutterbug Magazine Review
Shutterbug magazine is a great magazine for people intersted in purchasing camera equipment due to the large amount of advertisements included in the magazine. Also the magazine includes reviews and previews of new camera equipment. The one problem with the magazine is that it gives very little photographic advice. So if your interested in purchasing new equipment and reading reviews and previews for new equipment, shutterbug magazine is for you. Because not only does shutterbug tell you about whats new and what to buy in camera equipment, it has around 30 different camera stores advertising cameras with two of the stores each with around 20 page ads.If your not interested in purchasing new equipment, and your just interested in photography advice, stay away from shutterbug.

3-0 out of 5 stars Shutterbug Magazine (ads,ads, info, and then some more ads.
I find this magazine an excellent source for finding some current prices for equipment, but it falls short on the technical side. It is printed in a large format with many, many full page photographic dealer's ads. I have ran across some good articles, but find it more of a collection of... well... ads!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not for point and shoot
Shutterbug is not an 'art' photography magazine. It's focused more on gear and commercial techniques than on artistic photography. (If you want artistic, check out Lenswork or a similar publication.)

For me, one of the more interesting features is Joe Farace's column that reviews photography websites -- looking for both great photos as well as good web design. As I keep my photos online (http://www.theragens.com/photos), this is a column that I look to for interesting ideas. Other columns are also interesting.

Still, I give this three stars. I read it every month but I look for inspiration to Popular Imaging for basic techniques and to Outdoor Photographer (UK magazine) or Outdoor Photography (US magazine) for topics that are more of interest.

3-0 out of 5 stars A decent introduction to photography with unhelpful reviews
This magazine is basically composed of how-to articles and reviews. The articles are a good introduction, the reviews are unhelpful.

I learned most of what I know from reading this magazine and other "enthusiast" magazines like it. If you read it for awhile, you'll notice that the how-to articles repeat themselves fairly often, so the articles eventually get old. Although they are helpful for new photographers, they would be better off just buying a good textbook on beginning photography.

The reviews, like those in all magazines I've encountered, are almost entirely a waste of time. They will always be very positive (the mag won't bite the hand that feeds it), and don't offer meaningful critiques or comparisons to the competition. Find a good review website, like dpreview.

1-0 out of 5 stars Garbage
I am cross posting this most of these photo magazines are published by the same company under a different name. I have read them ALL!

First, 77%+ of this magazine is advertisements. That leaves under 25% of material. The material that does remain is bare minimum informational and tends to just show "pretty photos". Coverage on camera gear appears skewed since EVERYTHING is GREAT. This leads me to believe advertisers sway them.

In short, this is an advertising pamphlet with a cover price. If you need information, typing "photography" in any search engine will give you more information in 30 seconds then a 10 year subscription.

I wrote the main company about the 77% issue and they stated that they are aware of the amount of advertisement and quoted a percentage higher then I stated. That this was necessary to continue producing a magazine of this quality.

Quality? OK, if this is quality then I don't know what to say other then the semi professional magazines are free of charge from the publishers, contain actual subjective information, and are produced on high quality paper with fewer than 30% advertising.

2-0 out of 5 stars An Equipment Junkie's Magazine
Like most magazines aimed at the amateur, Photographic is predicated on the idea that better equipment equals better photography, and that to be a real photographer one must constantly be upgrading to the latest and the greatest. Sure, there are also columns and articles on "technique"- though often as not they're about using a particular piece of equipment you haven't yet purchased but which is obviously exactly what you need to makie those great Ansel Adams pics you've admired.

I read Photographic for many years- my father subscribed to it- and when I was a child I, too, bought into the idea that better gear would make me a better photographer. Fast forward 20 years, and I found myself doing some magazine illustration work with a 20 year old Nikon F2 and a hand held light meter. No automation, no modern electronics, and nothing in my camera bag made after 1978. And surprise of surprises, the photos came out just fine.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not For Me!!
I just reviewed American Photo with enthuiasm. I am not a professional and certainly love photography for the beauty of looking at it, not shopping shopping shopping for it (I mean lenses, cameras, tri-pods, etc etc)! This mag is selling way too much [stuff] for me. Maybe a professional appreciates it a lot more? But my boyfriend is such professional and seems to agree with me. There are a few things in there but they seem to be few and far between. Not worth the subscription to me!

I used to get PHOTOgraphic magazine from the stand since several years, and read total issues of >6 issues/year. I found it easey to read and injoy, but it lack the depth and comperhensiveness. I encourage every amature and technique oreinted photographer to have it every month. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Cool to look at, but when it comes to reading...
... I don't know. I guess my major complaint is that, if you aren't already privy to the latest in fashion, music, etc (like the other reviewer said, and he's quite right, this is a very hip magazine), then you'll probably feel pretty lowbrow. They don't really try to familiarize you with what's cool like GQ or DETAILS does; you're either in or you're not. However, it's definitely better than FLAUNT, which seems to be trying to imitate BLACK BOOK, in that the photography isn't as pretentious and the articles have a little more substance.

My last (subjective) complaints: the covers usually have celebrities I sort of consider to be overexposed (Jay Z, Adrien Brody, et al), and this is the magazine that Norman Mailer's stupid son/grandson (I don't remember which) John Buffalo Mailer wrote a piece in that has since catapulted him into HIGH TIMES fame (nepotism is never cool).

5-0 out of 5 stars The Hippest Mag Around
Starting as a quartely publication, Black Book has vaulted to bi-monthly releases and the highest level a magazine can aspire to reach. The publishers have their finger on a pulse that pumps literary, fashion, music, entertainment and art style onto eye catching pages. I haven't missed an issue and never will. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It's a wonderful magazine
If you're interested in photography and have an open mind about photographs, you should check this magazine out. Each issue contains at least one prose 'article', none of which has ever impressed me. But fortunately, the magazine's content is 99% photography and it quite often impresses me. Though the photographic content is not always consistently engaging, I've yet to see an issue in which at least one of the featured photographers doesn't expand my notion of what's beautiful or what can be done with photography.

5-0 out of 5 stars the most beautiful photo magazine being published
I wait with longing for this beautiful magazine to show up on my door step and have collected every issue since #3.

Everything about the magazine inspires me - the photography, the writing, the design and the printing.

The staff has a great eye for new talent and does a wonderful job of balancing the emerging artists with the more established talent.

This magazine showcases fine art photography like no other publication currently on the market and a subscription to this magazine is a must-have for any one seriously interested in photography. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This magazine is anything and everything you want
I am a computer videomaker myself, and if there is one invaluable resource avalible on the comsumer market, it's COMPUTER VIDEOMAKER. It reviews hardware, software, cameras, computers, and even gives you tips on how to make your videos look more professional. The articles are concise, accurate, and well written, so you don't have to search to find the information you are looking for. This magazine has made me a well informed videographer, and there is no doubt that it has helped, and will help how I plan, execute, and enjoy this incredibly rewarding hobby. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great graphic design magazine.
If you are into graphic arts, this magazine is a must have in your list of subscriptions. It's worth it especially for interviews and articles about artists from all over the world. Photoshop User magazine lacks a little on that standpoint, and How magazine is more focused on design companies than on digital artists.

Design Graphics also contains techniques for Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. If you already have a subscription to Photoshop User, or Computer Arts, fear not, as somehow (sheer luck, or agreement between the editors), the techniques rarely overlap from one magazine to the other.

Part of the magazine is set aside for reviews of new software and hardware, with lots of side by side comparisons. One could argue that the reviews are a little dry, much like a technical description of the product, without an opinion. I personally like it better when the reviewer gives me his/her opinion about what they are reviewing. But I guess that's a matter of taste.

Another small "problem" with this magazine, is that it is published in Australia. If you live anywhere else in the world, once it makes it to your house, the news it contains are slightly old. Not a big deal, and surely nothing the publisher can do anything about. :)

Conclusion: Design Graphics is more art oriented than it is industry oriented, and that's definitely a nice change that sets it apart from its competitors. ... Read more
