Dig out the manual that came with your camera and spend a few evenings actually reading it.<br><br> You'll finally discover what "Best Shot" mode does and why your flash photos always turn out too dark. Take a Class And while you're in learnin' mode, seek out a digital photography class or two. Trust me: These things are fun.<br><br> Your local camera shop might offer photo classes or workshops-- and they're probably free. Or check out the local community college or adult learning center. Camera makers sometimes run their own classes and workshops.<br><br> Carry a Tripod--And Use It You've heard me talk about the miraculous steadying powers of a tripod for years now, yet you still never use one. Maybe making it an official resolution will help. When you connect your digital camera to a tripod, monopod, or some other support, the difference in image sharpness will be as apparent to you as night and day.<br><br> Trust me. Visit your local camera store and invest in a lightweight tripod. Get Your Photos Organized By now you have hundreds or even thousands of photos on your computer.<br><br> Finding any specific image is getting harder by the day. So install a photo organizer and "tag" your photos with keywords. Then you can zero in on photos--and rediscover pictures you had forgotten you took-by clicking on tags.<br><br> Back Up Your Image Files Did you read the previous resolution? You've got thousands of photos on your computer! Good grief, what would happen if your hard drive failed?<br><br> Don't be one computer glitch away from losing all your photos. Get an external hard drive and back up your photos on a regular basis. Flying with Lithium Battery Update You've probably heard by now that the US Government (Department of Transportation) has begun heavily regulating travel with Lithium batteries on airplane flights within or to or from the US.<br><br> In short, Lithium batteries that are not installed in equipment can no longer be checked, and the Lithium content of batteries that are carried on but are not in equipment is limited. So the batteries actually in your laptop and cameras are fine, but you need to take stock of any spare Lithium, Li-Ion rechargeable, or other Lithium based batteries you're bringing along.
