Answer . \nThere are 3 steps to creating a digital picture:\n. \n(1)Focus light\n(2)Capture image\n(3)Generate digital file\n. \n. \nThe lens in a digital camera is used to focus the light into a sharp image. Many digital cameras are "fixed focus" meaning that the lens assembly does not move… when focusing between far and distant objects.\n. \n. \nInside every digital camera is an small electronic chip smaller than your thubnail that converts the focused light energy into electrical signals. Millions of separate light sensors are arranged on the electronic chip in a rectangular "array" behind the lens.\n. \nWhen you press the shutter button, the millions of light sensors measure the instantaneous level of light striking their small area and send this data to other circuitry in the camera.\n. \nThere these millions of separate values are converted to a computer file format (usually .jpg) and stored in the memory of the camera.

Long before the first public announcements of photographic processes in 1839, Joseph NicÃ©phore NiÃ©pce, a scientifically-minded gentleman living on his country estate near Chalon-sur-SaÃ´ne, France, began experimenting with photography. Fascinated with the craze for the newly-invented art of… lithography which swept over France in 1813, he began his initial experiments by 1816. Unable to draw well, NiÃ©pce first placed engravings, made transparent, onto engraving stones or glass plates coated with a light-sensitive varnish of his own composition. These experiments, together with his application of the then-popular optical instrument, the camera obscura, would eventually lead him to the invention of the new medium. In 1824 NiÃ©pce met with some degree of success in copying engravings, but it would be two years later before he had success utilizing pewter plates as the support medium for the process. By the summer of that year, 1826, NiÃ©pce was ready. In the window of his upper-story workroom at his Saint-Loup-de-Varennes country house, Le Gras, he set up a camera obscura, placed within it a polished pewter plate coated with bitumen of Judea (an asphalt derivative of petroleum), and uncapped the lens. After at least a day-long exposure of eight hours, the plate was removed and the latent image of the view from the window was rendered visible by washing it with a mixture of oil of lavender and white petroleum which dissolved away the parts of the bitumen which had not been hardened by light. The result was the permanent direct positive picture you see here-a one-of-a-kind photograph on pewter. It renders a view of the outbuildings, courtyard, trees and landscape as seen from that upstairs window. An ultimately doomed attempt to interest the Royal Society in his process-which he called "Heliography"-brought NiÃ©pce and the first photograph to England in 1827. Upon his return to France later that year, he left this precious artifact with his host, the British botanist and botanical artist, Francis Bauer, who dutifully recorded the inventor's name and additional information on the paper backing of the frame that held the unique plate. NiÃ©pce formed a partnership with the French artist, Louis Jacques MandÃ© Daguerre, in 1829, but produced little more work and died, his contributions chiefly unrecognized, in 1833. Thereafter, the nineteenth century would see the first photograph pass from Bauer's estate and through a variety of hands. After its last public exhibition in 1898 it slipped into obscurity and did not surface for over half a century. It was only in 1952 that the photohistorian, Helmut Gernsheim, was able to follow the clues, establish the work's provenance, and discover where descendants of the plate's last recorded owner had forgotten that it was stored away. He verified the photograph's authenticity, obtained it for his collection, and returned Joseph NicÃ©phore NiÃ©pce to his rightful place as the first photographer. When Harry Ransom purchased the Gernsheim Collection for The University of Texas at Austin in 1963, Helmut Gernsheim subsequently donated the Niepce heliograph to the institution. It is this heliograph-the world's earliest-known, permanent photograph from nature-that remains the cornerstone not only to UT's Photography Collection but also to the process of photography which has revolutionized our world throughout nearly two centuries. Because of its uniqueness and its significance to the fine arts and humanities, it is among the world's and The University's rarest treasures. ( Full Answer )

Depends on what you want done with it and what you took the picture on. If it is a camera on a phone then you can text it straight to your email or Facebook if you have Facebook mobile. If it is a digital camera you can plug the card into the computer and upload it there. Also for digital cameras yo…u can connect it to the computer with your usb or charging cord. For a camera that contains film you will have to take it in to a store that will get the pictures for you. You can then get it scanned with any scanner to have the picture pixels. This store will also get any of the pictures listed above off your devise and on a photo paper for it to be hanged or god knows what. ( Full Answer )

It is confusing, knowing that we are in the Milky Way, and yet we can take pictures. Think of the Milky Way being a plate. Now imagine earth at the edge of that plate. Looking inward you can still see the majority of the plate, which is the portion of the Milky Way that we see. It's just that everyt…hing is so spread out in space that it looks like we are seeing all of it, when in actuality we're only looking at the bright center, and still missing out on the edge of the plate (Or in our case since out galaxy is categorized as a spiral galaxy, we are missing out on the "arms" of our galaxy) ( Full Answer )

Unnecessary pictures of living beings are not encouraged in Islam. There is a particular reason behind this. The sturdy of the history of mankind shows that Idol worship started by portraying the poise personalities in pictures and in idols. Unfortunately, even now many Muslims decorate their hou…ses with the pictures of Religious Personalities, Peers, Scholars, and dear ones. They show respect and reverence to these pictures. It ultimately leads to Idol Worship-Hero Worship. Worship and Reverence of extreme kind is due to ONLY ONE Almighty Allah Karim. There should not be even an iota of doubt in this reverence that must be shown ONLY and ONLY to ONE Almighty God, Who is the Sole Creator, Sustainer, Provider and Ruler of the Heavens and the earth. He has No Son, No Parents and NO PARTNER. ( Full Answer )

Actually, there are a few First Ladies who preferred to stay in the background and hated the limelight. In the modern era, one of them was Bess Truman, wife of President Harry Truman. She would not talk to the media, did not hold any press conferences, and rarely agreed to be interviewed; she prefer…red to keep a low profile and remain away from the public eye as much as possible. She would allow an occasional photograph, but much preferred doing charitable work away from the cameras. In the old days, one of the most shy and reclusive First Ladies was Jane Pierce, wife of President Franklin Pierce. She was in the White House in the early 1850s, and spent much of her time in extended mourning over the tragic loss of her twelve year old son (he died in a train accident). Very religious, and also suffering from health problems, she became even more solitary, and rarely socialized with the public or with the Washington elites. ( Full Answer )
