About digital images
Getting images into Photoshop
Storing digital images
Camera film and photographic prints are not yet things of the past, and hopefully, there will always be a place for these beloved mediums. But humans continue to be endowed with certain irresistible compulsions, not the least of which is the pursuit of convenience. The instant gratification of digital imaging, along with the improvement of its quality, has contributed to making it the standard of today.
On the downside, the convenience of this new technology comes with the inconvenience of having to learn new things. Thankfully, the eye-candy of imagery — and, of course, the anticipation of knowing how to nefariously alter friends' photos — dulls the unpleasantness. Some might even say it makes it fun.
