Digital Photography has become so popular that those who still use film cameras are few and far between. Almost everyone, from the professional photographer to the average mom taking candid shots of her kids to the child first learning to use a camera, has entered the digital world.
People everywhere have hundreds and even thousands of lovely digital photographs hidden on hard drives.
