Q: Why should I purchase an eBook?  Do you offer a print (hardcopy) version?

A: The eBook format is very flexible. It allows you to not only view the book on your computer, but also to print a copy for personal use. You can print the entire Guide, or just the pages you want to reference.  Because the Guide is in eBook format, I can deliver it to you electronically in less than an hour, without any fees for shipping.  In addition, the eBook format is interactive; you can click Table of Contents or Index entries and be taken to the the exact page in the book where that reference is found.  I've also embedded URLs to resource websites in the eBook; you can't do that in a printed book.

 

Q: What software is required to view your eBooks?

A: You'll need a ZIP utility to extract the downloaded files, and the eBook PDF file is viewable on most PDF readers, although Adobe Reader 7.0 or later is preferred for maximum functionality. You must download the ZIP file to a Mac or PC before installing the PDF on an iPad or e-Reader.

 

Q: Can I view this book on my iPad?

A: The eBook is viewable on the iPad with iBooks; however, we cannot guarantee the functionality of bookmarks and other hyperlinks. I recommend the GoodReader PDF viewer for best results.  You will need to download the book to your computer (Mac or PC) first and then transfer the PDF to your iPad.

I have not tested this book on other e-Readers at this time; your reader will need to support PDF file viewing.

 

Q: Is Black & White with Capture NX 2 available on CD-ROM?

A: Not at this time.

 

 

Q: Can I make a printed copy of Black & White with Capture NX 2?

A: Absolutely. Registered owners are permitted to print a copy for personal use; refer to the Copyright and Printing Authorization information on page ii.

 

 

How can I purchase Black & White with Capture NX 2?

A: Simply go to the Luminesence of Nature Press online store, and you can securely purchase and download the Guide right away!

 

 

Q: I've ordered the Guide from your online store. Where is my download code?

A: You should be directed to a download link in your browser immediately after purchasing the Guide.  You will also receive an email with the link to the secure download. Please note that I do not recommend using IE8 for downloading this product, as the IE browser tends to have connection time-outs. I recommend using Safari, Firefox, or Chrome to perform the file download.

 

 

Q: What is your refund policy?

A: For downloadable products, all sales are final. Once you receive a download code, you own the eBook.  If you have problems with your download, contact me and I'll work with you to resolve any issues.
