  • See immediately whether you got the shot you wanted
  • Take dozens of photos to be sure you get what you want, and just delete the ones you don’t like
  • Edit and enhance your pictures on your computer
  • E-mail images to friends, post them on the Web, make prints, or create photo gifts

The more you know about your digital camera and about digital photography, the more you’ll enjoy taking pictures and the better your pictures will be. Of course, the best way to see examples of good photographic techniques is in full color, and Digital Photography For Dummies, 5th Edition gives you exactly that — plenty of beautiful, colorful photos that show you what you can accomplish and start the ideas popping.
