Dermatopathological vs Dermatoscopic images

In order for anyone to study dermatoscopy it is helpful to understand (dermatopathology) pictures about the histological structures on slides.

This is important because depending on if a vertical image or a horizontal image was taken, very different structures can appear quite similar.

For example a vertical image of a pathology slide of adipocytes without nuclei can so closely resemble a horizontal polarized dermatoscopic image of dermatofibromas without a peripheral network.)

I purchased called Essential Dermatopathology that has online access for the entire text as well as on online image bank.

I still feel the comprehensive textbook about Dermatopathology by Raymond Barnhill that I purchased is more detailed in different ways.

My question is what dermatopatholgy texts do other podiatrists use?
