It’s been less than a week after lancing DIYP’s first eBook: Home Studio Photography and we had awesome response from readers. Hundreds of readers bought and downloaded the book so far with great feedback.
Lots of emails have been coming through. Quite a bit of those were thank you for the book emails, but also some common questions that I would like to answer here.
Q: Is there a version for iPad?
We tried to make the book as generic and device friendly as possible. This is why we went with PDF format. It can be read on almost any decide, including the iPad, Android based devices and other readers. All you need is a free installation of Adobe Reader. If you would like to see how the book looks on an iPad (totally RAD!!) check the video at the bottom made by and featuring Neil Creek’s iPad.
Q: Where can I get a hard copy of the Home Studio Photography?
Currently this book is only available as a downloadle PDF. There may be future versions of the book in printed version, but those are not currently on the road map.
Q: Can I print the book?
Actually, I encourage you to print relevant sections of the book for personal use. Since much of the book is printed instructions it would make sense to print the relevant chapter so you can follow it as you go.
Q: Who is that awesomely cute girl on the cover (and on page 44)?
That’s my daughter, Liri. She is 6 at the time of writing this FAQ, and while it may not seem so, she took vast portions in the editing, proofreading and photo taking stages of making this book.
Q: How Do I download the book
After completing payment, the backend servers will send a mail to your paypal mail account. This mail will include a download link which you can use to download the book for 48 hours. If you missed that window, it is ok, just shoot me a mail and I will re-enable your download link. The book is roughly 24MB big, so when prompted click “save as”.
Q: what forms of shipping do you offer?
Well, it’s an eBook so we offer email as delivery, there are some nice aspects to this actually: no postage or S&H fees applied, you can start reading the book within minutes after ordering, and only relevant pages can be printed helping to save some trees.
Q: I don’t have a Paypal account, how can I get the book?
We use Paypal as our payment processor engine since it is a very popular and very secure firm of payment. In most countries, Paypal will allow you to use a Credit card without creating a paypal account. If you do want a paypal account you can sign for a free one here.
Q: What did you say about the iPad?
