When we started Your Digital Life, we had a fairly simple goal. We knew that there were plenty of excellent outlets for learning about what camera to buy or how to take a better photo.
What was missing was a site focused on everything that happened after you pressed the shutter.
So Your Digital Life was born. What we realized during the site’s first incarnation (YDL 1.0, if you will) is that what readers needed wasn’t simply the day’s latest and greatest news or service, but also a more coherent story. And so we’ve collected our wisdom, such as it is, and distilled into an e-book: From Fleeting to Forever: Enjoying and Preserving Your Digital Photos and Videos.
It’s available now from Amazon (here) as well as Barnes & Noble, the iBookStore and wherever fine e-books are sold. At just $6.99, we think it’s a great bargain (it runs 139 pages on the iPad, though page length will vary by reading device and font-size).
Here’s what’s inside:
- Chapter One: Get Organized
- Chapter Two: Prints and Photo Books
- Chapter Three: Wall Art
- Chapter Four: Your Photos On… Anything!
- Chapter Five: Digital Sharing and Social Networking
- Chapter Six: Your Videos
- Chapter Seven: How to Protect Your Images
- Conclusion: Your Digital Life
Each chapter offers both some general guidelines for each theme as well as specific product and service recommendations where appropriate. We view it as a resource that you can return to again and again when you’re in need of photographic inspiration.
Here’s what some of the reviewers are saying:
“I recommend “From Fleeting to Forever,” to photographers of all skill levels (especially to those who are not backing up their images both on- and off-site).” – Andrew Darlow, Imaging Buffet
“Even as someone who knows digital photography fairly well, I learned many new things in this seven chapter book including how to preserve my memories that I’ve captured with my video camera and how to best take advantage of the cloud. “ – Kristine, Two Classy Chics
McEnaney… and Scoblete… clearly know their stuff, and do an excellent job explaining some issues that many, many people deal with but to which they may not give much thought. — Stephen Silver, TechnologyTell
