“Over the last few years seeking monitor/display units that serve to perform with adjustment and color management to resolve the problems of too bright LCD displays causing too dark prints, my reaction has usually been mixed. I have to report that this was less so with this display than with even more sophisticated and expensive displays.”

As more photos are made on more types of devices, there’s a need for resultant images that aren’t just “OK” but as good as they can be. And part of the need, it would seem, is that some folks don’t want to spend a lot of time learning complex programs to get the image results they want. Companies like Athentech Imaging aim to make it a one-click affair.

I first looked at Auto FX Software’s DreamSuite Series One in the January, 2006, issue of Shutterbug. Since then, Auto FX has gone on to create DreamSuite Series Two and DreamSuite Gel. Now, Auto FX has released upgraded versions of all of these filter sets, plus an additional 12 new filters in a collection it calls DreamSuite Ultimate.

Although plug-ins are often referred to as "Photoshop Plug-ins," most of them can be used in many photo editors other than Photoshop (such as Corel Photo-Paint and Ulead PhotoImpact). Since everyone doesn't own a copy of Photoshop...

Photo/Graphic Edges (PGE) from Auto FX Software has been with us for many years and the company recently released their latest version, 7.0, Platinum Edition ($249, stand-alone and plug-in; $129, upgrade for owners of Version 5 or 6). The interface is identical to that used by all Auto FX Photoshop plug-ins. If you already use another Auto FX plug-in, such as Mystical Lighting or Mystical Focus, learning to use PGE should be easy. Even if you’re not familiar with Auto FX products, you’ll likely find the interface to be very straightforward and uncluttered, with plenty of room to work on your images.

Depending on which metaphor you like best, it's either the 800-pound gorilla in the pixel palace or the fly in the digital ointment. It's also, according to professional photographer Mark Gamba, "the thing no one is talking about."

So let's talk about it.

It's the protection and storage issue.

If your computer's hard disk fails, and you don't have any kind of backup, you will lose your entire digital photo collection for good. You might not enjoy thinking about it, but it's a fact that has to be faced. In my opinion you shouldn't put too much faith in recovery utilities and specialist data recovery companies. The success of these depends on the...

I just got a call from a digital photographer we all know and who is one of the pioneers and chief practitioners of the craft. He related the awful tale that we hear all too often these days--that his computer crashed and all the data on his hard drive was gone. Luckily, he had been backing up all along, on CDs and a separate hard drive.

Photographers should back up their image files—it’s as simple as that—and there are numerous services that offer their services today. In this article I’ll be looking at one, Carbonite (www.carbonite.com), that works somewhat differently from others. Many people have told me that their $59 per year for the Home Plan, unlimited backup, is a steal, so I thought I’d check it out.
