Need help taking pictures of your small art? Try my easy, outside method and avoid that nasty glare every time.

Also need help editing the photos once you've taken them? This ArtByte includes step-by-step instructions for editing in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, iPhoto, Picasa and iPiccy, along with the pros and cons of each program.

Also included is a bit of coaching in staying organized, and a peek at my own computer files.
