Selecting a RAW File Converter

All serious photographers shoot RAW files when taking pictures they plan to edit and print. The reason is simple: RAW files give you greater adjustment flexibility, thereby allowing you to recreate the shot you saw and gain the best quality from your digital camera. However, before you can edit RAW files from your camera they must be converted into standard TIFF or JPEG format.

Resizing Images for Printing and Emailing

Changing the sizes of image files is one of the most common software-based tasks in digital photography. Regardless of the type of digital camera you own, there will be times when the files it produces have to be resized for either printing or emailing. The process is simple, and can be done with virtually any editing application. It allows you to match the image parameters to the way the image will be viewed, so you can share your photos more effectively. It can also save you both time and money when you want to have prints made at a lab.

Protect Your Digital Images Against Copying

With the proliferation of social websites where people upload images for sharing, the ownership and re-use of digital pictures has become an important issue for photographers at all levels. When you publish a digital photo on a website – or provide it on a disk to a friend or customer – it’s wise to protect that image against illegal copying.
