The most powerful antidepresent in the world has 4 paws & a wagging tail.

There are only 3 colors, 10 digits,
 & 7 notes: its what we do with them that's important!


People may forget what you said, they may forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel!

Tech Tip!

How much camera resolution is really necessary?

This is important only for prints & determining
the size of print you desire.

Listed below are examples of the megapixels needed for various size prints


4 megapixel = 8 X 10

5 megapixel = 11 X 14

6 megapixel = 13 X 19

8 megapixel = 16 X 20

10 –12 megapixel = 24 X 36

36 megapixel = 30 X 40+
