“To err is human—and to blame it on a computer is even more so.”—Robert Orben

Wi-Fi and printing are two words I never expected to use together in a sentence, but after working with Epson’s (www.epson.com) Artisan 700 All-in-One I can’t imagine it any other way. For openers, the Artisan 700 is compact...

Wireless transfer of photographic image files is nothing new--at least not in Internet years. Canon and Nikon have their own versions of such devices and while they are not inexpensive (about $1000) they are not that expensive if you really need to transfer image files wirelessly. The downside to Canon's WFT-E1A and Nikon's WT-2 is that both are designed to work...

Everybody knows the best way to light macro-sized subjects is with a ringlight, right? But el problemo is that ringlights produce flat-looking lighting.

My favorite scene in the film Lawrence of Arabia is when Peter O'Toole, as Lawrence, looks out onto the desert landscape and watches a rider riding slowly toward him. It turns out to be Omar Sharif but the encounter is made more dramatic by the widescreen format.

There are a lot of ways to make panoramic images, including cropping standard...

According to IDC Inc., the number of digital images captured is expected to grow from 3.5 billion in 1999 to 34 billion in 2004. So it's no wonder that the computer world's mantra of "bigger, faster, cheaper" was never more obvious than in this year's crop of digital imaging...

Books about digital imaging can be a source of information and inspiration. They have the space to provide an in-depth look at programs, plug-ins, or techniques and many of them include CD-ROMs loaded with demo or "tryout" versions of commercial software, shareware, or files of the...

What does the Internet have to do with the invention of graphics plug-ins? More than you might think and you don't have to be a fan of James Burke's TV series Connections to make the necessary connections. It starts in the mind of computer...

Many people’s New Year’s resolution is to lose weight and since, as of this writing, I’ve lost 53 lbs, that’s low on my list of possibilities. Last year in this column I announced a resolution to make a new photograph every day and post in a gallery called “2011 Photo of the Day” (http://farace.smugmug.com). If you visit it, you’ll see that I’ve only partially succeeded. The project turned out to be much harder than I expected and only heightened my appreciation of some of the Picture-a-Day blogs and websites featured in Web Profiles during 2011. Instead, my 2012 New Year’s resolution is to update all of my websites and blogs and I’m well on my way, including a long-overdue update to www.joefarace.com. In the meantime, you can draw some inspiration from the websites and blogs that are featured to kick off the New Year.
