This series alone very probably will pay for a year's subscription at MPV. The section on Color Range and quick selection are worth hours, days, and even up to weeks of accumulative time. This series, by itself, has paid for several months of membership at MPV!!!!!!

with color range tool, as an example, a little more time to develop information would be helpful. Or don't you use this tool in dealing with digital photography vs design.
