File Photos


Often I talk about documents and the importance of open formats, mostly oriented toward formats like the Open Document Format (ODF) standard versus Microsoft’s OOXML specification.

Recently I was nostalgic and decided to look at some old photographs. At one point in my life, I took a lot of pictures with a 35mm film camera. To cut the cost of developing the pictures, I chose to have slides made instead of prints. Of course, slides are not that convenient to view because you have to set up a slide projector and screen.
