    Digital photography

    I like to take my camera out when either hunting or fishing. Last x-mas my wife decided to get me into the digital age. I will admit it is convenient to put a memory card in and be able to take hundreds of pictures without changing film. And when you get the time you can delete any picture for what ever your reason. Then when I get home I can take the memory card and either put it the computer or a 4x6 photo developer and edit out or fix the mistakes. Just looking for pointers because sometimes the photo I like the most doesn't come out no matter what I try. Pointers, as I said, would be helpful or if you could point out a book that can be understood by the layman. Thank you for any info.

    I would recommend some photo manipulation software.
    Although I use PhotoShop I understand that there is lots of less expensive alternative out there.
    Also be sure to check the manual that came with the camera. Some have the ability to do manipulation right in the camera.

    Scott Kelby's books are great. This is book 1 in his series (I think he's up to 5 now)

    The Digital Photography Book Vol 1

    +1 on the books.
    Another thing to consider is the software as mentioned in post #2. Photoshop is the best IMHO but is rather expensive. Years ago when I was messing around with Linux, I started using GIMP. It's a very powerful tool for manipulation and the best part is that it's free.
