  1. After years of enjoying the fine quality of the Nikon photographic equipment, i made the hard decision of switching yesterday. Byebye Nikon, hello Canon. The canon 5d it is. The specs are quite stunning; 12,8 MP, magnesium alloy body and above all a full frame sensor. No more crop factor! (Yay!) I choose the 24-70/2.8 as primary lens. Now that was the point were the financial reserves were gone. So, awaiting the package by mail. Everytime a car stops in front of the house, my heart rate increase by a factor 2. Yet to no avail. Hope to post some nice shots soon (if that lazy mailman-bum decides to put a bit more commitment in his work). ps anyone interested in some cheap secondhand nikon stuff?

    How to vectorize a bitmap or pdf?

    Not exactly , more into this, and ofcourse not into a gif but into a vector-eps/ai. And btw flash is out of my league. So do have any options. (The friday evening 1700 deadline hour is closing in soooo fast )
  6. Dear fellow graphic designers, whats the fastest way to make a vector out of a bitmap (jpg/tiff, general image file) or a pdf (with probably a bitmap enclosed). I have to make some sort of line art/blueprint/map out of a picture. Is there some illustrator trick, or do i have to it manually with a pen tool? Im running on photoshop, illustrator, indesign. All help appriciated, thanks, BR_76

    Do Burned CDs Have a Short Life Span?

    YES, they absolutely do. Ive done a lot of research on this issue because i need to archive lots of big files. I also had some unreadables cd's whom were burned about 3-4 years ago. The detoriation rely on a couple of factors, but THEY WILL. Some tips for steady burning: - Choose at least a medium quality CD. - Set your writing speed low (like 12x, it will burn, like, a deeper grove which last longer) - Close all other applications to avoid buffer overrun - Set your desktop on a steady underground, do not bump into it - NEVER TOUCH CD WITH BARE HANDS (acid) nor write on it - Store them in a dark place under a constant (preferable low) temperature and low humidity - Do not read them very often, use them only for long term back up/archival purposes A better, more reliable, way for storing are plain (or external) hard disks. It seems more expensive, but it is not. Compare the price of medium quality cds to harddisks in MB/$ (and take into account that you will never burn 700MB to a cd, always less). Besides more reliability, its way way faster in storing (write speeds) and the data is better accessible. I have no experience with tape streamers, but in the "professional" archivers world they seem still very popular.
