Text and Photography by Peter Krogh
N 440 .K76 2006

Transitioning from film-based photography equipment to digital photography can be a challenge for many photographers. In this book, Peter Krogh outlines workflows that facilitate the processing, organization, and archiving of pictures in the digital environment. His discussion centers around the use of software packages such as Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Adobe Bridge, but he also discusses the importance of cataloging photographs and adding descriptive language to them when they are being created. This book will be valuable to anyone who owns a digital camera, whether a professional photographer or hobbyist.
