I have used some photo managing ideas already and posted more of them online, as a result of this book. I have spent more time looking at others photos as well. I have taken an online photo class, andwill take one he recommends to compare with. I have decided to put some photos on tee shirts and mugs and even have some postcards made. I now know where to do it and how to doit. Great book. Wonderfully organized. Well worth the time and investment.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Remember threading film into a camera, using a variety of lenses and filters, memorizing settings and adjustments to take photos with just the right kind of film, then waiting until the roll of film was developed to see how many, if any, photographs were successful? Though professional photographers doubtless continue this craft, the throngs of 'memory keepers' have submitted to the current state of the art image capturing processes of the digital camera, whether those images are from a sophisticated cell phone or a digital camera. Bu then another problem arises - what to do with all the 'pictures' loaded into the computer, e.g. how to save them, alter them, catalogue them, use them artistically, send them to friends, or enter the realm of professionalism by submitting them in the proper way for competitions or publications?
Once again photographer/teacher Matthew Bamberg shares his expertise as he has in his other books. In a very user friendly way he takes the reader/digital photographer by the hand and provides visual examples of all the instructions anyone would need about how to deal with the digital camera image. This is a not only a fine 'how to' book: this is sophisticated guide to finding the extensive possibilities inherent in those little palm size cameras - with a disc instead of a roll of film and a manual for instantly visualizing and altering the results of an outing instead of waiting for an exposed roll to be returned. He provides step by step instructions that leave no stone unturned. Read this book, keep it by the computer, and your needs for greeting cards, scrapbooks and family memento albums will be satisfied. Well worth adding to the desk library!
