Digital imaging is an enormous topic and could make up an entire web site all its own. This section will cover the basics. In the following lessons and at a later date, I will expand this topic. You will need a digital camera or scanner to do these lessons. I use the image editing program Photoshop, but most image editing programs have similar functions and can be studied in the help sections of each individual program.

Digital imaging is recorded and translated in pixels or dpi (dots per inch). It can be compared with the resolution of your film. The higher the dpi number the better the image quality. For example, an increase in graininess appears with a faster film like 400 ASA vs 100 ASA. Likewise, 72 dpi is visually chunked into squares whereas 300 dpi maintains a smooth looking transition or continuous tone. This is only visible when an image is printed. Your computer monitor has a resolution of 72 dpi so no distortion is visible until the image is printed.

These lessons are designed to help you get started with some digital imaging ideas and things that you can do on the computer that will stimulate your creativity.

Below are some images that show before and after digital manipulations.

Don't forget with each lesson the
button allows you to get help. This feature alone is worth 10 times the value you are paying for the lessons.
