Chapter Two. Nuts and Bolts of Digital Imaging

Before you run out and start capturing images with your digital camera (OK, before you go out and take even more photos, since you've probably already accumulated more digital images than you know what to do with), you should understand the nuts and bolts of digital photography. The more you understand about digital imaging, the better equipped you'll be to make the most of your digital photography. The key concepts to understand are resolution, bit-depth, color modes, and file formats, all of which we'll cover in overview in this chapter and then in greater detail in later chapters.
