ENLARGING PICTURES TO FIND A NEW PICTURE
Discover New Meaning in Your Digital Images

Imagener was created to expand the options and uses of digital images. One major use is to pull a new picture out of an existing one – to find the image of subjects or elements that may be hiding within the overall scene. Details within images that even the most trained observer would miss can be given a life of its own through enlargement.

An extension of this is to actually think about enlargement whenever you are going through your digital image library, or even during picture taking. Observe patterns within your field of view that seem isolated or that do not stand out and would normally be missed because they are part of the background detail of an image with a dominant subject. Another way to think about how enlargement can add value to your images is to look for strong main elements, then focus your attention on the detail that is not the main element looking for specifics that are in contrast with the main element or subject of the photo. These contrasting patterns in subject matter can give you new, exciting pictures.

Here's an example. In the photograph below, the main subject are tourists on a beach in the Caribbean.

The eye is drawn to the line of yellow umbrellas against the skyline, accented by a woman staring out to sea. This image presents subject matter that makes you focus on the larger theme rather than on the images of seagulls that are somewhat camouflaged by the sand. Camouflage can be a major source of lost detail as it takes some practice to notice image elements that wash into surrounding background colors. Enlargement of camouflaged elements can create new images that would otherwise not exist.
 
Picture Within a Picture
Imagener helps you find detail in photos and makes that detail valueable on its own. Imagener enlargement can give you new pictures and allow you to discover hidden elements that you would never have noticed before.
The image to the left was enlarged with Imagener Unlimited.  
We have many testimonials from people that have told us that this is the most exciting use for Imagener - that it can reveal entire new images that would not have been possible with any other photo software.

 
CONSERVING MEMORY AND STOPPING ADWARE
As we alluded to in our April 2005 newsletter, Imagener Unlimited is extremely memory intensive. Therefore you should do whatever you can to conserve memory, and that includes stopping spyware and adware. Spyware and adware often launch and keep parts of themselves in memory the entire time your computer is on. It will decrease the amount of memory available to programs and will make your computer run slower (sometimes much slower). The amount of memory loss and computer operating slowness depends on how many of these programs have attached themselves to your system.

We found one program that stops pop-ups and eliminates spyware and adware while you are working on the computer and surfing the Internet. It is an intelligent application called Stopzilla. Stopzilla lets you clear all of your cookies or your browsing history with a single click, and it has built-in adware and spyware detectors, so you never need to worry about third-party software following your tracks on the Net or serving up sleazy ads. Spyware and adware are stopped in real-time, which means that once it is installed, you are protected and you don’t have to run a scan because it is always blocking these types of programs.

STOPzilla Anti-Spyware: Limited Time Only: $19.95 - $10 REBATE

SHARING AND PRINTING PHOTOS ONLINE
This month we review an online service that allows you to store and edit photos, share them with friends and family, and order lab-quality prints online. Of all the websites we reviewed, this one is by far the easiest to figure out. It also lets you create an online album to store and share your photos. Just send your friends or family a link and share your memories without attaching large photos in e-mail.

Shutterfly.com has a lot of advantages to other online photo printing services. Registration is a breeze, asking only for your name and e-mail address. From its sign-in screen to your own personal album pages, the site's interface is simple and intuitive. Pages load quickly, and your photo pages display as single pictures or as a thumbnail album with your captions. You can upload digital shots by scanning your hard drive, or using Shutterfly's SmartUpload utility, a small program transfers files using an upload wizard to make things easy. Shutterfly provides unlimited storage space. SmartUpload also supports simple editing functions such as rotating and cropping.

Once your album is uploaded, choose photos or whole albums you wish to share and enter the e-mail addresses of your family and friends. Then they can click the link to your gallery. Here, they can view an automatic slide show, click a thumbnail display to view larger versions of any given image, or order reprints of your images.
