Capturing Memories with a New Generation of Digital Cameras

As a photography buff and Photoshop user, I have been touching up digital photographs for years. Rarely will you see acne, wrinkles, warts, or scars on the individuals in any of my pictures. In my personal photos, I have been paring off the extra flab that appears on my lower arms and thighs for so long now that it is easy for me to forget what I really look like. Furthermore, my close friends and family members always look at my photos with a knowing eye. If there is a huge mushroom or fish in one of my photographs, or if there is a shark’s fin just breaking the surface of the water behind swimmers, or if someone’s eyes look way too bright, my loved ones know that I have been up to my old tricks.

PowerPoint: Where’s My Chart Data?

Excel Charts are prime examples of the old saying “A picture is worth a thousand words,” and PowerPoint presentations provide a great vehicle for passing a chart’s message on to an audience.

Each of those impacts your ability to update the chart. These choices are available by clicking the drop-down arrow next to the paste icon at the lower right corner of the pasted chart:

Using Bcc Field in Outlook

When you send an email using Outlook, you typically use the “To” field for primary recipients and the “Cc” field for secondary recipients. (The primary recipients are the main individuals who need to receive the email. The secondary recipients are those who need to be kept in the loop.)

If you want to send a copy of the email to someone else, and you don’t want the primary and secondary recipients to know that you are sending a copy to this person, you can use the Bcc field (blind carbon copy).
