Chapter 20. Desktop Publishing > Digital Photography

Digital Photography

Digital photography is rapidly replacing the film camera and has many applications in business. You can use a digital camera to take pictures and then import your pictures into your computer for use in desktop publishing applications. You can create images for high-quality newsletters, photo ID cards, and Web sites for your company with a digital camera.

The key difference between a digital camera and a film-based camera is that the digital camera has no film. Instead it has a sensor (a CCD similar to a scanner or a CMOS chip) that converts light into a digital form. Images can be saved in a graphic file format, typically JPEG.
