New IMac. Get your ducks lined up in a row and
buy a Mac for every member of the family
...mac, mac, mac
iMac is designed around a stunning 15-inch LCD flat screen thatís brighter,
sharper and easier on the eyes than old-fashioned CRT displays. And
instead of requiring your neck, shoulders and back to do the adjusting,
the new iMacís display literally glides through the air ó allowing you
to effortlessly adjust its height or angle with a touch of your finger.
Inside its ultra-compact 10.6-inch base lives the fastest iMac ever,
with a Pentium-crushing 800MHz PowerPC G4 processor that blazes through
Mac OS X applications. And our revolutionary SuperDrive that lets you
burn your own DVDs in addition to custom CDs. Itís clear that the new
iMac is several leaps ahead of any other computer out there. Just like
Three beautiful models
You have a choice of three new iMac models: the 800MHz iMac with
SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW), 700MHz iMac with Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW
) or the 700MHz iMac with a CD-RW drive. All models ship with the fearsomely
fast NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics processor for photorealistic games
and spectacular 3D graphics.
Compact design saves desk space
How did we pack so much into such a small space? Credit a design
approach that optimized every bit of space and resulted in no wasted
corners. Starting with a custom-designed circular logic board that fills
the entire diameter of the base, we created space to fit in a full-height
optical drive such as the SuperDrive. On top of the optical drive are
a high-capacity 3.5-inch hard disk drive and even the power supply ó
a split design that tucks neatly into the top of the base.
Not just easy to use, itís easy to expand
Adding memory or installing an AirPort Card is simple, even for
first-time computer users. Beneath the base is an access cover held
in place by four screws. Remove the cover and youíll see slots for additional
memory and an AirPort Card. Images printed under each of these slots
show you how memory and the AirPort Card fit in the base when properly
installed, so you donít even need to refer to a manual.
The aptly-named SuperDrive
iMac models with the superlative SuperDrive
(DVD-R/CD-RW) let you burn your own movies and photos that play in almost
any standard DVD player. And of course you can play
DVD movies on them as well.

ASSOCIATION OF PHOTOSHOP PROFESSIONALS
Create a dynamic industry trade association that would serve as the
central resource for Adobe® Photoshop® training, news, and education
in the world.
The road map
Assemble a world-class team of Photoshop experts, authors,
consultants, trainers, and educators. Put them together in an energy
charged environment with just one goal: to fundamentally change the
way Adobe Photoshop is taught. Reassess the entire education process
and find a way to make it easier, faster, and more fun. In short, do
anything and everything to ensure that NAPP members are on the cutting
edge of Adobe Photoshop, and dramatically ahead of their competition.
Add to this by offering an incredibly compelling package of member benefits,
and make it so affordable that anyone can join.
Our daily mantra
Make NAPP membership so valuable, and such an important part of their
success, that our members can't imagine being without us.
A brief history
The idea for forming the NAPP came from feedback we received from
training over 31,000 Photoshop users across the country since 1993 with
the Adobe Photoshop Seminar Tour. Time and time again, our students
asked for direction on continuing education, but unfortunately at that
time, it was just "a book here, a Web site there..." but there
was no central resource for Photoshop education. It became apparent
that there was a tremendous need for this type of association, and with
the urging and input of some key people in the industry, we developed
the outline for what would become the National Association of Photoshop
With Adobe's help, the NAPP was officially launched at Seybold New York
in April of 1998, and the first issue of Photoshop User magazine debuted.
The organization was met with an immediate flood of industry support,
and within just a few months the NAPP already had thousands of members
in 64 countries around the world, and has now grown to become the largest
graphics-related association in the world.
We continue our focus on member feedback so we can continue to address
the techniques, issues and concerns we all share as Photoshop users.
It is this relationship that has taken us from our humble beginnings,
to being one of the largest, most respected organizations of its kind,
and the central resource for Adobe Photoshop training and education
PhotoshopWorld is the 4th annual convention of the National
Association of Photoshop Professionals (The trade association
for Adobe Photoshop users, and the world's leading resource for training,
education, and news) and has become the largest Photoshop event in the

Note: The FAA provides air travelers in the United States the
right to request a non-X-ray inspection of photosensitive products (FAA
Reg. 108.17-AIRPLANE OPERATOR SECURITY). The complete regulation is
very informative, but section Part 108.17e is most important to travelers
carrying film. Click here to go to the FAA Web site: FAA
(http://www.faa.gov/), or to view that regulation: FAA
Reg. 108 . Remember that this only applies to air travelers in
the United States.
US Mail to be sterilized: Implications for Kodak and the photo
To protect public health and ensure confidence in the US Mail system,
the United States Postal Service (USPS) is installing new equipment
to sanitize certain items sent through the mail. While various sanitizing
technologies can damage film and other sensitive materials, the USPS
has issued the following statement:
"The USPS is working with the mailing industry to develop procedures
to ensure that sanitization of the mail will not damage sensitive items
in the mail. Sanitization technology is currently being tested on a
wide range of film products, digital and magnetic storage devices, laboratory
samples, food and plant products, and "smart" credit cards
with embedded chips to ensure that all business mail can be safely processed
through the postal system."
Therefore, based upon this statement and upon other information from
USPS shared with Kodak and the photo industry, it appears that current
photographic commerce in all its forms will be unaffected.
Kodak will issue further statements as new information becomes available.

ALERT: New Problems In Mailing Photographic Materials
Double check before you ship. from WIPI member Adrienne Adam
The following is an email from the North American Nature Photographers
Since the Postal Service has been forced to begin irradiating some of
the mail it delivers, there is an increased risk of damage to photographic
and imaging materials that photographers regularly send through the mail.
The risks are greatest when sending anything to federal government offices,
since this is where all mail is being irradiated now. This may become
more widespread in the future as the Postal Service begins irradiating
mail passing through its major distribution centers.
The primary danger is heat. Apparently, the irradiation process can cause
plastic material to heat to the point of softening and distorting. This
will damage not only slides and negatives, but things like CD cases as
There is a more insidious problem awaiting photographers who make their
own CDs for mailing. The CD-R and CD-RW recording process relies on heat
to imprint data on blank media. Exposure to additional, external heating
can ruin your recorded data, even if the plastic substrate is not affected.
Just try leaving a freshly recorded CD in a car in the sun sometime and
you'll get a perfect example of what can happen.
Before sending your slides, negatives, or CDs to any federal government
office, contact the recipient and make delivery arrangements before sending.
For non-governmental deliveries, it is safer (for your materials) to send
them via FedEx, UPS, or other carriers.
check the website at www.usps.com
for any updates regarding mailings. On the USPS website there are links
to the government agencies.
