Chapter 7. Multimedia and Imaging > Multimedia, Imaging, and Windows

Multimedia, Imaging, and Windows

When Windows was first developed in the mid-1980s, none of the hardware we use today to capture and transform still and video images was available. However, as time passed, still photographers, and more recently, videographers have discovered the computer and its ability to edit, transform, organize, and store their work.

Whether you're a serious photographer with a portfolio that rivals Ansel Adams, a videographer inspired by Stanley Kubrick, or just a casual camera user who's looking for a way to organize the family photo album, Windows XP contains built-in tools and features that are designed to make the marriage of images and pixels a happy one. Even if you plan to replace the multimedia and imaging tools in Windows XP with higher-powered third-party solutions, Windows XP's architecture makes it easier to use the tools you want to use with the photos and video you love to create.
