Three new computer guides promise long-term reference importance.Dan Gookin and Robert Birnbach's EBAY PHOTOS THAT SELL: TAKING GREAT PRODUCT SHOTS FOR EBAY AND EBYOND (0782143814, $29.99) teaches home seller how to create high-quality photos using basic digital camera and some tricks of the photography trade. From taking initial good shots to creating props from items found at home and knowing how to use a camera's features, EBAY PHOTOS THAT SELL covers the many common problems beginners face, and how to overcome them. Usders of the MAYA program will welcome George Maestri's MAYA AT A GLANCE (0782144047, $24.99): unlike competing Maya tomes, it uses a color visual approach to pack pages with graphics supplementing 'how to' descriptions. Pair these visuals with easy step-by-step tutorials and you have not just a reference, but a workbook packed with examples by a director and producer. For a more complex guide, turn to Alias Learning Tools' third edition of THE ART OF MAYA (1894893824), which delves further into UV coordinates for maximum texturing, 3D texture placement, tesselation, and more. From adding special effects to understanding their properties, Maya users beyond the beginner's stage will welcome a guide to the finer art of tweaking Maya productions.
