I uploaded the first small series of photos taken with my new Canon PowerShot A95 digital camera. I actually uploaded these photos shortly after I posted the story about Unpacking My Canon PowerShot A95, but I didn't have time to create the story pointing to this album.

I'm going to try to sit down in the next couple of days and write about the Canon digital camera utilities like ZoomBrowser, CanonWindow, and PhotoStitch. They seem like pretty good utilities, considering that you get them for free. I'm coming at this as a veteran digital camera user who had an early prosumer digital camera (Nikon Coolpix 950), so there are aspects of the bundled software suite that are totally new to me.

I've learned a few things about working with a modern digital camera already. It's easy to upload hundreds of photos via a USB 2.0 connection with a camera like the Canon PowerShot A95. It's another thing to choose photos for a photo gallery, edit, and caption them in way that readers who are not relatives or close friends will find interesting.

I hope I'm doing a good job. If you have comments or suggestions, let me know by emailing me at daiello [at]
