While JPG-format image files may be perfectly adequate for most digital photography purposes, professionals tend to use a so-called raw image format instead. These files are typically much larger than JPEG files (40 MB per image is not uncommon), but the lack of compression and the addition of copious metadata means that it's the ideal format if you need to do some serious retouching.

Have you ever wanted to know more about the Windows Registry and how it works. This tutorial is unusual because it goes deeper into the registry internals and management while keeping it easy to understand.

Here's something a little different, which should be good for most of July. It's a live webcam of brown bears at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, Alaska. It's currently the salmon fishing season so, during daylight hours, you should be able to see a few very patient bears waiting for a fish. Addictive viewing! Download the free eBooks on Katmai's Bears while you're there.

Last week our Hot Finds editor mentioned a free program called Activity Indicator, which lets you see in real time the names of the files that Windows is accessing. A few readers contacted him to say that Process Monitor, an old favourite of many, can also do the same thing. Which reminded him that he hadn't yet mentioned this excellent freeware program. Time to make amends.

This weeks wallpaper is an amazing shot of fireworks over the harbor in Sydney, Australia. The great colors and sharp focus make this wallpaper one you'll want to download. Icons do quite well with this wallpaper except in the very brightest areas.
