About the CD-ROMs

The Images featured on my CD-ROMs have been selected on the basis of their esthetic qualities or documentary value in relationship with my guidebooks Photographing the Southwest - Volume 1 and 2 and Land of the Canyons. To make the images easy to find and visualize, they are sorted within folders named after a specific park or region.
The Images are easily manipulated in most graphic programs and can be used as screen savers, on the web or as illustrations for brochures or other printed materials under certain conditions. You cannot resell or use the images for commercial purposes, however, you can resize them, change their resolution, save them as .GIF or .JPG images, use them as screen savers or print them in high quality (albeit in a much smaller size), etc. (Read Licensing Agreement)
The color space used for the images is sRGB, which is adequate for monitor viewing on most RGB and LCD monitors.

My CD-ROMs include two terrific shareware graphic applications:

  • ThumbsPlus™ (for Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000 and XP): I have included the shareware version of "ThumbsPlus™", by special permission from Cerius Software. You may use it to browse the pictures on your CD-ROM, view a slideshow, etc. You need to register this shareware application if you continue using it past the demo period.
  • GraphicConverter™ (for Mac OSClassic and Mac OSX): I have included the carbon version of "Graphic Converter™", by permission of Lemke Software. You may use it to browse the pictures on your CD-ROM, view a slideshow, etc. You need to register this shareware application if you continue using it.
