What Happened to My Images ??!!
Corrupted Disks and Rescue Strategies
by George Schaub

I am not sure if it’s happened to you, but it’s happened to me. After having spent an afternoon shooting with my digital camera everything suddenly stopped. While the counter in my camera LED showed that I had plenty of memory space left images taken would simply not record to the card. Error messages flashed, the red record light kept flickering and all I could think about was all those images that were lost. (It’s funny but the images lost always seem to be the best you ever made.) I turned the camera off, removed the card and placed another one into the slot—and that worked fine. I put the card in a safe place and all I could think about was getting back to my computer to see what could be salvaged.

CS 3 Beta..Black and White Improvements and Changes
by George Schaub

I have always enjoyed black and white printing, and have used the tools in various versions of Photoshop to go from color to black and white. Now, with CS3 (beta) there are even more tools to work with, some of which are improvements or at least refinements over what was offered before.

The new conversion options in Camera Raw, accessed automatically when you open a Raw image from the CS3 Bridge, are a good place to begin. I always shoot Raw when I know I am going to make prints from my digital camera shots as it gives me the most processing flexibility. The shot I am going to use was made with a Canon 30D at a Canon workshop in Yellowstone National Park.
