This page contains articles and essays I have written. This is stuff that is “permanent” and is meant to be found by navigating the site looking for specific stuff you want to read about. The Journal is more about announcement, information about changes to the site and more fleeting information.

The reason for this is that I like to come back to things I have written and update it with new insights as the world moves along, and new possibilities arise. This is especially important for articles related to digital images and of software for post processing. So if you have read an article before, it might be updated now. I will try post a Journal entry when I do that. So no need to read the whole site every time you visit.
