chapter  3
First Steps
Pages 42

A s a simple introduction to the program, this chapter will take you through the fi rst basic steps involved in digital photography from downloading your pictures from your camera to the computer to holding an enhanced print in your hand. We won’t get involved in any manual or complex editing or enhancement techniques – there

will be plenty of time for these in the next couple of chapters – instead, we will look at the various

ways that you can get your images from your camera or scanner into the program, and see how

you can manage the pictures once they are there. Then we will select an individual photograph,

rotate and crop the image, save the changed fi le and fi nally print the picture. So let’s get started.
