Jon Udell talks HD Photo with Bill Crow

Description

Did you know that many cameras can take better photos than the jpeg standard can display? This means that the camera is often trying to figure out which ball to drop in terms of how to save the photo and therefore limits you in the color correction you can make after taking the picture. Raw has been one way around this problem, another is Microsoft's new HD Photo format.

You may think that you need some expensive or proprietary software to use this new format - not so. You can get started using HD Photo using Windows Live Photo Gallery, a free download. Check out this screencast of Jon Udell talking to Bill Crow about how simple it is for "happy snappers" to easily adjust photo attributes using Windows Live Photo Gallery.
