Remember the shoebox, the place where all those snapshots were stored? It was
a great tradition to take a roll of film, share it with family and friends and
then dutifully deposit the pictures and negatives into a cardboard container that
would be stocked away on some closet shelf. Well, digital photography hasn't
changed that great tradition, but nowadays the "shoebox" is more likely
filled with CDs or DVDs that hold the pictures--only to be stacked away in that
same closet next to that snapshot shoebox.

selective colors later in the software. We'll work with two controls here,
Hue/Saturation and Selective Color, both used as Adjustment Layers.

Delkin Devices, Inc. has introduced the eFilm Archival Gold "300-Year" CD-R. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's incorporate patented Phthalocyanine (thalo-sy-a-neen)
dye and a 24k gold reflective layer into every CD-R. The innovative materials
found in eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's are said to make them one of the most
reliable storage mediums available. According to Delkin, CD-R's are known
to deteriorate quickly due to earth's common elements: ultra violet light,
heat, and humidity. Using an accelerated aging process to test the longevity
of CD-R media, eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's have been shown to safely store
your images for more than 300 years.

The MagFiber series of tripods and monopods comprise a revolutionary design, combining
the strength of magnesium and carbon fiber. Each leg is crafted from carbon fiber
using an exclusive, patented process. Under intense pressure, extra long carbon
fibers are combined with resin to produce a stronger tube that absorbs more vibration
than any other tripod in its class; all with a wall thickness of only 1.2mm. To
reduce slipping and rotation and more importantly to promote enhanced stability,
each tube is highlighted by a three faceted design.
