Essential Accessories

In addition to the computer components, there are additional accessories we consider essential equipment for an efficient digital darkroom.

Card Reader

You can connect your digital camera directly to your computer and transfer your images using that connection, but that's an inconvenient approach because it turns the camera into an oversized card reader that isn't as easy to work with. Instead, we recommend getting a card reader that will allow you to connect your digital media cards directly to the computer (Figure 8.15). This way, you can keep your camera in the bag safe and sound. We'll talk about how to actually transfer your images in Chapter 9, “Download, Edit, and Convert.” But while you're setting up your digital darkroom, a card reader is an excellent accessory to add.
