Best Software: Photo Management

Eighteen months ago I looked at the Best Software For Graphics. Now I have a Pentax digital SLR, it's time to update that list with a special article focusing on photo management and workflow. The original article still stands for image editing and creation tasks. All of the packages I'll mention (except one) are free of charge, so there's nothing to stop you from trying them out.

Photo Printing Services for Ireland

After doing a survey of Irish photo printing services for my own use I thought I'd share what I found with you. I can't comment based on usability or service, but I will link to the vendors' price sheets. To get some idea of price, I costed two jobs including delivery. The first is forty 6x4" prints, the second a single A3 poster (which is about 24x16" for those fixated on Imperial units). Of course the more you order at once the better the per unit cost, if only because you will optimise postage.

Ouroboros: Premiere 24 January 2008


Ouroboros is the snake which forever eats its own tail. It is most often seen as the principle of eternity and indeed of the universe itself. But it also represents a feedback loop, and hence the mind of the subject viewing it.

Next Thursday evening, 24 January 2008 at 7.30pm, I will present the première of the sonic performance Ouroboros at the Belltable, 69 O’Connell Street, Limerick. This is part of Excursions 2008 Performance Art Festival.
