Several Photography & Imaging oriented mailing lists on the Internet


If you would like to engage in discussions about photography and imaging you might consider subscribing to an e-mail discussion group. About 50 of these lists are mentioned below. Most are available in English but you will also find them in Spanish, Portugese, Greek, Swedish, etc.

You can subscribe (or signoff) to each of these lists by sending e-mail to the address each list uses to accept subscription and other requests (like signoff and review) as given below.

The subscription and unsubscription procedures vary a bit from list to list but suffice it to say that subscribe instructions are given below for each list. Note that a signoff request (typically something like: unsubscribe followed by the list's name) should go to the _same_ address you sent the request to subscribe to. Also, this request usually should come from the same address you used to subscribe with. It is not good manners to send such requests to the list itself. HINT: It really helps to keep the welcome message with the signoff instructions. Trust me, you'll need it later.

If you know of other Internet photography or imaging related lists or if you have updated information about any of the lists mentioned below please let me know so that I can correct this file. Send to my address below:
