3. If you choose to use a self-service kiosk, follow the instruction on the kiosk or ask assistance from the store customer service staff.
Figure 12-15: An in-store kiosk
In-store kiosks can be a great convenience and timesaver. Although they don't provide the hands-on opportunity for fine-tuning that you can achieve in your editing package, many in-store kiosks provide color balance, red eye removal, brightness, contrast, cropping, enlarging, and other features prior to printing out your pictures. If you're away from home and you don't travel with your laptop and printer (and many of us don't), using an in-store kiosk can enable you to print out a good set of pictures while on vacation or any other time you don't want to edit your prints yourself. Many services also allow you to store your photos on a CD at a modest cost.

Organizing and Sharing Photos
hotoshop Album is a popular package used by amateur photographers
to manage, print, and share their photos. Photoshop Album is an inexpensive and powerful choice for the amateur photographer to use as a central control panel for digital photography activity. The program provides one-stop shopping for the most popular photo management functions, everything from storing photos to e-mailing them. Album even links to a selection of editing software packages, such as Adobe Photoshop, that you might have installed on your computer, and then allows you to click once on a picture and launch the editing package with the picture preloaded.
This chapter covers the basics of Photoshop Album, including using a number of its project-oriented wizards. Many other wizards and tools are available from the Adobe Web site, www.adobe.com, as well as from third-party vendors and freeware from other users on the Internet. Album can be useful even to more advanced photographers for quick fixes and for last-minute small projects, such as a greeting card, without the complications of more sophisticated software.
The point of digital photography for the amateur is enjoyment. Photoshop Album and similar software programs can simplify tasks and let the user focus on the fun. To find out more about Photoshop Album, check out Photoshop Album For Dummies, by Barbara Obermeier.
