Archive for June 2019


I realize it’s not quite summer yet, but nevertheless it’s time for me to take a bit of a hiatus from posting new articles here. In fact, this has nothing to do with traditional summer events like going on vacation. The boring reality is that I have a ginormous deadline coming up in my day job, I’m way behind, and I need every extra hour to keep my business from turning into a pumpkin. So that’s where I’ll be putting all my attention for a bit.

In theory, I’ll meet my deadline by the end of June and be able to resume articles here in July. In practice, things never work out as neatly as I expect them to, so rather than commit to an exact date when new content will resume, I’ll simply say: we’ll be back as soon as possible!

In the meantime, please enjoy the hundreds of articles in our archive.

Take Control of Your Digital Photos cover

Are you drowning in a sea of digital photos? Unable to find the shots you’re looking for, or to stay on top of managing all the photos you’re taking? Digital photography expert Jeff Carlson gives you a plan for tackling this problem, starting with preparing your camera ahead of time, then choosing the right app to manage your photos, judging and organizing your photos, and backing up your photos for safekeeping.

In Take Control of Your Digital Photos, Jeff shows both Mac and Windows users how to deal with photo overload using any of the following apps: Apple’s Photos; Adobe’s Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom CC, or Photoshop Elements; or Mylio.

This book, like all Take Control titles, comes as an ebook, and you can download any combination of formats—PDF, EPUB, and/or Kindle’s Mobipocket format—so you can read it on pretty much any computer, smartphone, tablet, or ebook reader. The cover price is $14.99, but as an Interesting Thing of the Day reader, you can buy it for 30% off, or just $10.49.
