As image resolution keeps getting bigger and better, photographers are challenged storing their images. One cost-effective solution that’s gaining in popularity and offers good protection is a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) server. However, they are a relatively unfamiliar option for most photographers who aren’t IT-oriented, so we thought it would be a good idea to get guidance on them from an expert.—Editor

"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools."
--Douglas Adams

So, an LCD display made and sold for computer use might be appropriately considered a stepchild of the TV industry. A professional graphic display intended to meet the...

LaCie recently began offering a new set of high-performance LCD displays, dubbed their 700 Series. First of all, the screens are high-performance, fine-resolution displays like few I have tested and reviewed. The 700 Series has two features which add immensely to the character and perceptual quality of the color images displayed. Most LCD display screens available today utilize a set of CCFL...

After covering many of the new brand name LCD displays in previous Shutterbug reports, I could not ignore LG Electronics' (LGE) LCD displays, in part because they are likely the world's current leader in LCD manufacture, although most of the production is OEM and sold under many different brand names. Recently, however, LGE has been marketing under their own brand name...

One of the most important aspects of this product package is that it’s the first to offer ideal color reproduction for digital photography in an integrated package at a cost many individual photographers can afford.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT is an application with a long history and one that I have used off and on for as many years. This latest Version 9 is not all that different in outward appearance and the included feature set than the previous Version 8, or even 7 for...

When it comes to choosing a display for your computer to do photographic image editing and color correction there is an old saying, "You can't control what you can't see." This should be your primary guide as to what to buy. ViewSonic has been a brand name associated with monitors and displays from the earliest days of personal computers and the company...

When Pantone introduced huey about a year ago, the device was noteworthy for a couple of reasons. The first was the price. At well under $100, it was clearly targeted to the more casual user than previous offerings had been. The huey was also one of the easiest calibration devices to use, and the only one that supported automatic adjustments for ambient light changes.

Not long ago the last of the 21/22" quality graphic CRT monitors disappeared from the marketplace and a new era of LCD displays came into play. For many doing digital photography editing it was a new and unfamiliar world. It became a particular challenge because many of the models were configured and targeted at a market that is distinctly different from digital photography...
