There are millions of photographs sitting around on laptops, desktops, in online accounts like Flickr and Facebook, and on storage devices such as hard drives and CDs. Most of them are just sitting around gathering digital dust. Add to that all of the years of film and slide images that are slowly deteriorating while collecting real dust.
The goal of 101 Quick And Easy Secrets For Using Your Digital Photographs is to show you different methods for resurrecting those images and putting them to use by showing you the best ways to manipulate, manage, publish, share, and promote your images. This book is 208 pages and is divided into 13 chapters.
