Understanding Image Histograms

how to Understand image histograms
Understanding image histograms is probably the single most important
concept to become familiar with when working with pictures from a digital
camera
Example Histogram

TONES

region where most of the brightness values are present is called
the "tonal range."

with markers to illustrate where regions in the scene map to
brightness levels on the histogram

underexposure is usually more forgiving than
overexposure (although this compromises your
signal to noise ratio).  Detail can never be recovered when a region
becomes so overexposed

occurred since you can readily see when the highlights are pushed

ensure your router's safety

clipped from antivirus.about.com

  1. Change the default password to a secure password.

  2. Disable Remote Web Administration.

  3. Disable Wireless Administration so that an ethernet connection is required to access the device console.

  4. Update your router's firmware. Make a note of the version and date; check your router periodically to ensure it hasn't been changed. If a change is discovered, visit your router vendor's website and install a new firmware update (be sure to reboot the router afterwards).

Home and SOHO users will find more helpful router tips in Bradley Mitchell's Tips for Maintaining Wireless Home Networks.
