Step-by-step, readers are guided through how to shoot the best photos, upload images to a computer, troubleshoot to remove red-eye, crop images, correct problematic exposures, adjust the color, output images, and archive them. Techniques for backing up and safely storing images and tips for creating digital contact sheets to make retrieving images a snap are also provided.
