Photo editing: quick fixes or manual manipulation?

If you’re a wretched digital photographer — or even a good one — Jasc’s Paint Shop Pro 8 and Roxio’s PhotoSuite 5 Platinum can help you fix your pics. The difference? Paint Shop Pro 8 takes some work to learn but gives ample help, whereas PhotoSuite ...

Take great photos in bad weather

Most digital cameras are best used on dry sunny days or indoors, protected from the elements. Olympus’s new water-resistant models allow you to keep shooting even when the weather turns foul.

Kyocera Finecam S5

Kyocera says that its $1395 Finecam S5 is the world’s smallest 5-megapixel camera. The size is indeed wonderful, but the quality of the camera’s images leaves much to be desired.

Canon PowerShot G3 digital camera

Is Canon late to the 5-megapixel party by releasing its swanky $1799 PowerShot G3 with the same 4-megapixel resolution as its predecessor, the PowerShot G2?

Pinnacle Expression, VideoWave Movie Creator

Adobe Photoshop 7

Photoshop, Adobe's big-gorilla image editing application, traditionally has provided tonnes of tools for preparing images. In Photoshop 7, Adobe adds a painting engine that offers effects previously available only from rival Procreate (formerly Corel...

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
