Let Someone Else Do It

Finally, you can get prints (or even transparencies) of your work done commercially. There are labs and service bureaus set up to handle this along with almost any other work you may require, provided you send them a Syquest or Zip disk with your image file on it.

You can have photographs output on Kodak or Fuji professional dye-sub printers or have huge posters made on paper, canvas or vinyl by one of Encad's wide, ink-jet printers. The Iris drum printer can produce large GiclŽe (the artsy name for ink-jet) prints on different textures of watercolor papers with beautiful results. You can even have your images output from disk directly to color copiers made by Ricoh, Minolta, or Xerox (beware, Canon copiers sometimes streak a lot).

If you want slides or larger transparencies from your files, these can also be made and provided they have high enough resolution to begin with, you will not be able to tell them apart from camera originals. There's yet another interesting process...conventional RA-4 color prints made directly from your digital files on a photo finishing machine designed specifically for that purpose.

You've probably seen that vitamin commercial on TV for the over-50's set that proclaims: It's a great time to be silver. Nonsense! It's a great time to be digital. Pick up a digital camera, shoot some great digital photos, and get into digital imaging. It doesn't have to cost a fortune, it beats doing it the old-fashioned way, and it's just a helluva lot of fun.
