The final step in the digital darkroom process is outputting your photographs on an ink jet printer and having the "right" paper can have as much impact on the quality of that output as choosing the correct paper and developer combination in a...

While my silver 10-speed bike is a far cry from the silver Audi R8 I recently piloted around Sonoma Raceway they both have one thing in common: they are essentially transportation devices that allow a person to get from one point to another. And while the R8 gets you there lots faster than a bicycle, the journey is part of the experience. The one thing that the imaging tools featured this month have in common is they help you make images; they do so in different ways, based on the kind of photographer you are and what you like to photograph.

It’s hard for me to believe that it’s November already. As I write this, the trees and plants on Daisy Hill are still in full bloom but this column gives me an opportunity to thank a few people who have helped me over this year. Thanks to Tim Fiedler (www.dracophoto.com) who is responsible for the redesign and implementation of my car photography website and blog (www.joefaraceshootscars.com). He also implemented my movie blog (www.ihatepopcorn.com) with an assist from Ralph Nelson (www.ralphnelson.com) who designed the header. Thanks also to Kevin Elliott (www.digitalmd.net), the computer guru who keeps my systems running. And finally I am thankful for the continuing friendship of my pal Barry Staver who started having monthly breakfasts with me 20 years ago ostensibly to share Photoshop tips but has evolved into much more than that.

Like many Microsoft Windows users, I spend far too much time keeping my computer healthy. In the April 2005 issue, I introduced you to browser options other than Internet Explorer and while those programs are less prone to security problems, spyware continues to plague...

There is a popular misconception that digital imaging is limited to color photography. That's simply not true. Digital imaging embraces all the same aspects of color--or lack of color--that conventional photography does. Part of this lack of...

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

Like a lot of photographers, I take some things for granted. When inserting a CompactFlash card into a camera and capturing lots of images, I assume that I'll be able to transfer...

"He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it."--Douglas Adams

In the April 2006 issue of Shutterbug I recounted a story about methods used to rescue image files from a corrupted memory card. In response I received a couple of useful suggestions from readers: The first was from...
