A local photographer has approached you about how he could use a computer to alter and enhance his photographs. He currently uses a film camera to take his photographs and at the moment has no plans to switch to a digital camera. He has heard that current technology allows him to be more productive, that he can capture images and can use software to manipulate these images and enhance their quality e.g. remove red eye, insert images over different back grounds, adjust colour and more. To save office space he also wants to store photographs electronically (both old and new).
