Photodesk, the premier photo retouching package for RISC OS, has been in the process of having a new written from scratch manual for some time now. This work is continuing and is approximately 85% complete. To enable users to benefit from the new manual now, we have made the draft version available to download from our website. Full instructions on how to update the template manual on the Photodesk 3.09 CD to the new manual are included in the download. The new author would also welcome any comments, suggestions or feedback on the manual. We must thank Chris Terran for his many hours of work. Users of Photodesk 3.09 & 3.09x can download the manual for free from http://www.cjemicros.co.uk/photodesk or, as the download is 5.6MB, we can also make it available on CD for a 5GBP admin charge. Anyone with Photodesk prior to 3.09 can upgrade to the latest release of Photodesk (version 3.09x) which now comes complete with the draft manual on CD. Upgrades 3.09 to 3.09x: Free download or 4GBP on floppy disc / 5GBP on CD 3.08 to 3.09x: 17GBP 3.05 or 3.06 to 3.09x: 27GBP 3.00-3.04 to 3.09x: 42GBP 2.xx to 3.09x: 63GBP Full copy: 84GBP Prices include european delivery We are unable to give a time scale for the full version, but it will be available as a free download when available for Photodesk 3.09 or later users.
