The current directory is photography. As a responsible website administrator, we have the duty of helping and introducing viewers to emerging trends and technologies in and around the photographic community. As we grew up on the traditional silver halide based products, which has taken almost 100 years to develop, we are not indicating there is a immediate complete substitution for the faithful products that have helped us recorded history, events, emotions and brought many joyous or heartbroken memories through the pictures we have taken for the past one century. Digital imaging has taken off along with the robust development of the IT industry and fueled by the global communication tools like the Internet. Hardly emerged in serious scale since the earlier 90' and it has invade, accepted and penetrating into our day to day activities and stay invisible.

Some current key application areas for digital imaging include:

Desktop publishing of documents and presentations;
Creative imaging for photography, prepress services and advertising;
Scientific and technical imaging for medical, industrial, and security and law enforcement purposes;
Entertainment imaging;
Educational imaging applications.
