Beginner's Guides to Digital Imaging
Presented by

New to the world of digital photos? Not sure how to get the pictures from your camera up onto RailroadForums for all to see? Wondering why it keeps telling you that your file is too big? You've come to the right place. We've put together several beginner's guides that cover things like image formats, editing photos using a variety of photo editing software, and how to upload photos to the discussion forums here on RailroadForums.

This series of guides has been compiled by myself (Aaron Hockley) and is a combined effort of several RailroadForums veterans (authors noted on specific guides). Thanks guys!

It is recommended that everyone start with the Image Format guide, then read the guide for your specific photo editing software, then read the Uploading guide when you're ready to post images.

And here they are:
- Introduction to Digital File Formats
- Using IrfanView
- Using PaintShop Pro 9
- Using Picasa
- Using ULead PhotoImpact 6
- How to Upload Photos to the Forums
