Basic Digital Photography

High-resolution digital cameras matched with powerful computers, high-quality scanners, and photo-quality ink-jet printers virtually eliminate the need for film or processing.

An introduction to the equipment (both hardware and software) is provided, and detailed information on storage options, lenses, optics, image manipulation and editing, compression of files, focusing capabilities, and outputting images to electronic format (such as the Web) onto photo-quality paper via an ink-jet printer is also covered. Hobbyists and professional photographers alike can utilize this technology to enhance their capabilities in taking and distributing good photographs.
