Additional Fun Software

Using Photo Story 3, a free program from Microsoft for Windows XP users, learn how to "create slideshows using your digital photos." You'll be able to touch-up, crop, or rotate pictures, add special effects, text, and sound. An excellent feature of Photo Story 3 is the small file size of your finished photo stories, small enough to attach to email.

Make comics with your photos!

For Mac - Comic Life free version comes with the Intel Macs. Article with what it does and where to get it. You can also get an upgrade to the Deluxe

For PC - try Comicbook Creator

Share your photos online and make Bragbooks, Calendars, Greeting Cards, or just order prints, etc.

For Mac - you've got iPhoto free with OS X, but there is a fee for making these projects.

For both Mac and PC there are many online photo sites - I like Shutterfly - free download to, fee to print the project.

Technical

Here is a good place for background information on digital cameras. Some of the information gets much deeper than just the basics. Megapixel.com has articles on tops for using your camera, a glossary of technical terms, what to look for when purchasing, and much more!
