Chapter 4. Image Transfer > Choosing a Computer

Choosing a Computer

Whereas film photographers rely on rooms full of enlargers, plumbing, and photographic chemicals, the digital photographer needs a decent computer, a lot of storage, some image-processing software, and a printer.

When I wrote the first edition of this book, computer choice was a fairly delicate issue, as you needed to pick a machine with enough processing power to run an image editing program and enough storage to handle the demands of heavy shooting. These days, things are much easier for the simple fact that even entry-level computers today are very fast, and storage is extremely cheap.
