According to the Wall Street Journal news, On 19 Jan, 2012, the world's largest imaging products and related services, production and supply giant Kodak Company filed for bankruptcy protection in New York. United States.
Kodak Company was founded in 1880. American Fun Science Site said in 1888, George Eastman Kodak had brought photography to the public with Kodak cameras, for the first time, ordinary people can freeze realities to pictures, and sometime a picture is worth than one thousand words.
Anyway, the era that belong to the traditional film, has been gone and can never be back now. Who will need Kodak when no one uses films now?
Some analytics say that it is the price competition and the digital imaging technology that caused Kodak's bankruptcy, especially the latter. With the emergence of digital imaging technology, photography has gradual farewell to paper and negatives. A palm-sized CD-ROM can store thousands of photos; and then, the computer printer can print the photos directly. In short, digital imaging has become the mainstream of the market. Paper and negatives, in addition to some professionals, has been left without anybody to care for. This technological revolution has declared the dying state of the film industry and caused the bankruptcy of Kodak at last.
So, as Kodak gets bankruptcy, what can we do for better record our photos? Of course it is the digital tools. No matter it is the advanced digital camera or the common mobile phones, the photos can be easily reserved to the devices and then we may load them to the computers for further save. Sometime the other problem might emerge that there are so many photos in our computers! And if we don't have a good custom of filing them clearly, we will be lost in the numerous photos and cannot find out the ones we are searching for.
So here I may recommend a very particular solution to save photos clearly, which is to make a digital flip book. A flip book is a book with a series of pictures that vary gradually from one page to the next, so that when the pages are turned rapidly, the pictures appear to animate by simulating motion or some other change (According to Wikipedia). Such a digital flip book, which can be made easily with the flip book maker, is like a folder in computers, but more than that. Since the flip book can collect all photos into one file together like a book, but the folder photos are split.
What's more, the flip book made by the page turning software makes it easy for anyone to create 3D realistic flash page-flipping books without any programming skills. To be short, it makes possible for everyone to create a digital magazine of our own. And once we tried and made it, we'll feel it cool to appreciate our works as well as reserve our photos better.
