I have followed and discussed with Ed Hamrick about his development of scanner software VueScan for many years and love it. It comes with support for almost all known scanners, and instals quickly and easily from the web. I think this is the best aid to digitalisiering using scanners.
I love landscape and nature photography, here’s a guy who was the first to shoot high resolution with digital backs to large format in nature, and he impresses still, check Stephen Johnson galleries.
FotoWare is a Norwegian system for keeping track of all your digital assets, primarily if you have very many pictures. Used by small and large companies worldwide, including some of the world’s largest image users.
On Flickr, you can upload photos, set keywords so they can be found by anyone looking for pictures, and then you can place them on the map, so people who are interested in just where you’ve been will be able to find them. You will find an incredible number of photos there, one can search pictures from places, persons, specific types of cameras and various other ways to search.
Instagram is the place where you upload images from your phone, but you can copy them from PC to smartphone and then upload too. Very fun, very popular, if you use hashtags like #stensethphoto, everybody will be able to search for them using that keyword, making it easy to reach millions of users.
