Digital Photography: Preface

Preface

You’ve taken your last snapshot, and grabbed your last video clip! This book will help you move to the next level, using digital imagery to create exciting images of your favorite photo subjects and events. Whether you’re looking to create picture-perfect stills or transfer your videos to neatly-edited, professional-looking DVDs, you’ll find everything you need to know in this book.

This book is your introduction to all the exciting things you can do with images, from your camera to your printer, from your print to your computer, and videotape to DVD…plus a lot more!

About the Book

Images and sound have always fascinated us, because of their power to preserve memories, tell stories, and convey information quickly and memorably. Digital imagery takes traditional photography and video to the next level, giving you the power of the computer to shape pictures and sound into the exact finished product you want.

This book is organized into easy-to-digest bites, with stand-alone chapters you can read in any order to learn exactly what you want to know about computers; capturing, editing and transferring videos; shooting digital still photos; sharing pictures; and making prints.

The great Hewlett Packard products are used as examples throughout this book, because HP is the only manufacturer that produces every component (other than video cameras) that you need to enjoy digital imagery. These include media-ready computers, digital cameras, scanners, DVD burners with built-in video capture capabilities, and printers. However, if you use components from other manufacturers—say a different computer or DVD drive—everything in this book will still be useful to you.

So, if you want to know how to outfit your computer for best results, you can start out with Chapter 1, “Your Digital Imagery Computer.” If you’d rather jump right in to learning how to capture or transfer your existing videos to digital form, you can skip ahead to Chapter 2, “Preparing to Capture Your Videos” or Chapter 3, “Transferring Your Video to Computer.” Need to edit your videos? Chapter 4 shows you how.

Perhaps still photos are more your cup of tea. You can learn how to choose a digital camera in Chapter 5, and discover some ways to take better pictures in Chapter 6, “Going Beyond Point-and-Shoot.” Chapter 7 will get you started editing your digital photos, and Chapter 8 offers tips on how to share them with others through email, Web pages, or digital photo albums.

If you want to digitize your existing snapshots so you can edit them in your computer, Chapter 9, “Grabbing Images with a Scanner,” reveals the secrets of the HP ScanJet line. The company’s other claim to fame, printers, is the focus of Chapter 10.

Even if you purchased this book because you wanted to learn just one thing, say, how to transfer VHS videos to your computer, I hope you’ll explore everything that digital imagery has to offer. Still photos, videos, prints, and online images all provide you with different ways of enjoying and sharing the sights and sounds that make your life interesting.
