Soules to reveal ‘Secret Life of Pixels’

MOUNT DESERT — George Soules will give a talk titled “The Secret Life of Pixels: The Journey from Camera to JPEG File” at the MDI Photo Club’s monthly meeting in the Mellon Room of the Northeast Harbor Library on Tuesday, Oct. 11, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

The presentation will explain what happens from the moment a photographer presses the camera’s shutter button to the time when the file is ready to print or share by email and social media. Understanding this process will help people make better use of their digital cameras, know what to do and not do during post-processing and choose the right settings when exporting an image from their editing software. In his talk, Soules will demystify digital image files and the terminology associated with them.

Soules is a software architect, photographer and president of the MDI Photo Club. He promises that anyone who shoots with a digital camera and uses photo editing software will learn something from this fun and enlightening presentation. All are invited to attend. Visit
