Digital Imagery

Good morning. With coffee in hand we'll have a relaxing morning together trying to make the most of our images.

Downloading and Storing

Once we've downloaded our images, storing and sorted is always an issue. Let's begin by creating folders for various categories of our pictures. This Microsoft tutorial may be helpful.

Google's Picasa, is a free program that sorts and organizes your photos as well. After we download, we'll look at some of its features.

Photo Editing

You may find this is all you need for basic editing. If you want a bit more powerful tool, let's try IrfanView

The best lower end image editing product is Adobe Photoshop Elements which is a more user friendly version of the industry standard Adobe Photoshop.

Online Sharing and Storage

Emailing photos can be an issue for storage and download time. A more effective tool is online storage. Flickr is the most versatile web service available. Learn more.


Printing photos on your computer is convenient but is somewhat costly and challenging to do correctly. Walmart offers online photo printing for 25cents a picture. Windows makes it very easy to send pictures to Walmart. Download and install their client. And the rest is very straightforward. Don't pay till you pick them up. They are usually ready the next day.

Qoop will print your Flickr photos in a book or poster form.

Englaze will archive all your photos to DVD and even do a slideshow for you.

Wonderful and informative web site.I used information from that site its great.
