Conventions Used in this Book

The majority of the usages in this book should be self-explanatory. The combination Filter r Sharpening r Unsharp Mask, for example, represents the menu sequence Filter followed by Sharpening and the menu item Unsharp Mask. Keystroke combinations are designated using the |ctrl|-|~A| notation. The hyphen means both keys should be pressed simultaneously. Menu entries and action buttons are written using the File or OK typefaces, and list elements to be selected and new terms are written in italics.

The Windows and Mac OS X versions of the programs referenced in this book almost always use the same keystroke combinations, although the Windows À key is replaced by the @ (option)* key in the Mac OS. The Windows Ctrl I key is replaced by the  key in the Mac.** Q means shift in both systems (@-lAi represents a capital A). V represents the return or enter key. The H/ combination signifies use of |ctrl| in the case of a PC, and  for a Mac. The same logic applies to the À/0 notation.
