CREATIVE MISSING -- British government appoints panel of "experts" in copyright law review - The review, launched by Prime Minister, David Cameron, last month, is to address the current state of intellectual property rights in the United Kingdom and the European Union in an aim to simplify copyright law in the digital age. However, the panel of experts does not have one representative from the creative industries. SOURCE: Tommy Bassom http://www.bjp-online.com/IMG/538/102538/defendcopyright1.jpg?1275061650

Digital Photography Tips

The discovery and implementation of digital photography is one of the great advancements of our era. No longer do photographers have to wait for hours or days to see their results. Digital photography saves you time, money and effort.

How to Buy a Digital Camera
If you're new to using a digital camera , here are a few tips to keep in mind:

∑ Consider the amount of megapixels. Generally the more megapixels you have, the better the quality of your image. This is especially important if you want to make enlargements. The reality is that a 3 megapixel camera will do the job for an 8x10 print, assuming that the optics, processor and firmware are of good quality. If you're printing at 11x14, a 6 megapixel camera will do the job, again, assuming the optics, processor and firmware are of good quality.
It's not necessary to spend a lot of money for a camera with 10 megapixels or more. Shooting at that image size will eat up a lot of disk space quickly. Unless you're shooting for a high-end result, such as stock photography, the higher megapixel count isn't necessary.

∑ Buy a camera with an optical zoom as this produces the best picture quality. While digital zoom is available, it reduces the size of your image (and resolution). If you want to create a digital zoom, you can easily do so after the fact using image editing software.

∑ Make sure that the camera uses removable memory cards. You don't want to get stuck with a fixed amount of memory.

∑ Make sure the camera has a large LCD and rangefinder option. In addition, make sure the LCD doesn't wash out in the bright glare of sunlight).

∑ Choose a camera that uses rechargeable batteries (preferably lithium ion, not nicads)

∑ Consider the size of your camera and that it fits comfortably in your hands. If it's too small you run the risk of dropping it.

∑ Make sure your computer can match the system requirements of the camera. If in doubt, check your computer manual for more information.

∑ Consider purchasing two cameras, one a point-and-shoot that fits in your pocket, the other, a higher quality camera (DSLR) with interchangeable lenses and a high quality chip for studio and location photography. DSLR cameras also perform better in low light situations. This is one area where point-and-shoot cameras don't fare very well.

∑ Make sure that the camera has an optical viewfinder. LCD's don't display well in sunlight and they consume battery power quickly.

Speed Up PC Performance: Use The Services Management Console

The System Configuration Utility is a great way of stopping programs that run at startup, but it doesn't cover all services. Another way, with considerably more detail is to make use of the Services Management Console. To activate it, go to Start: Run and type in services.msc.

In the Services Management Console, make sure that the Extended tab is enabled.

Note: You have to be logged on as an administrator or be a part of the Administrators group to complete this procedure.

When you boot up your computer, there are many services that are essential for your machine to run smoothly, but there are some that are unnecessary. If they are running, they can slow your computer down by a little, or a lot. In the Services Management Console you have the ability to look at these services, one at a time, and to find out which ones you can turn off. This is similar to the System Configuration Utility but with a lot more detail. In addition to being able to stop programs, you have the ability to pause them and then see how your system runs without that service active. If it's not essential to the operation of your computer, you can turn it off.

Another great thing about the Services Management Console is the amount of information you can obtain about each program. As a case in point, this screen shot shows off the Windows Updates tab, a service that many users love to hate.

One way that you can control the service is with the headings on the upper left of this dialog box. In this case, I've turned the service off, and you'll notice the Start heading to enable the service. If you're looking for a longer term solution, one where you can turn the service off so it doesn't load at startup, highlight the heading and right-click on it, which brings up a popup menu. Click on Properties. In the Properties dialog box, navigate to the Startup type section and in the popup menu, chose Disabled. At the bottom of the dialog box, click on Apply and OK.

When you're satisfied with your changes, click on File: Exit. Using the Services Management Console is a great way to speed up your computer without having to buy any additional software.
