Showing your Images in Style

One of the most powerful features in Proshow is Slide Styles. With a single click they let you add some snap to your images with unique treatments ranging from professional scrolling captions to photo album like layouts and other professional effects. Not content to rest on their initial set of styles, . I didn't understand the value of styles until Amanda from Photodex demoed them to me at PMA. Now I'm a big fan. I used a couple on my first Death Valley slideshow, but to demonstrate a little more of their power I've uploaded a new (it's in HD, so definitely try it out with YouTube's new HD option!).

Nikon D2X Hands-on Review

Nikon D2X: Two Cameras in One

$5,000 is a lot to spend for a camera. Sure, it's what I paid for my first D1 and for my first D1X, but aren't prices supposed to be coming down? So it was with some trepidation that I decided to go ahead and sell one of my D2Hs and purchase one of the first Nikon D2X units. That is a lot of image sales. My camera arrived right on schedule, the 1st of March, and I got to work putting it through its paces.
