My account in Instagram (http://instagram.com/yassermetwally) is the place where you will find a lot of images about Egypt. Although my Instagram account is still in its infancy, however it is currently interesting enough. My Instagram account is created to contain images taken on the run using my mobile smartphone.

Please use your mobile smartphone to access Instagram accounts in general  as I am not sure you can use your PCs or Macs to access Instagram, Personally I failed,

Have fun

The Egyptian museum in Cairo is a  25 MB windows application (Windows Vista, 7,8) that contains almost all items in the Egyptian museum in Tahrir square in Cairo. This application is  freeware that can be freely distributed. The publication is based on  pictures only without a single word. It contains almost 400 items and requires adobe reader preinstalled in the system (by the way adobe reader is almost an integral part of windows)

The 280 MB Version of the Egyptian geographic magazine is here and ready to be downloaded

The author: Professor Yasser Metwally

The Egyptian geographic magazine is a slideshow-based digital publication that contains too may images and too little words because I always regarded pictures as pieces of information (infographics) that are even more informative than words. Images (infograms) represent a wordless international language that can be understood by any human being without the need for an interpreter and without the need to translate any thing to any language. Photos here act as a medium of information in its own right rather than to enhance a text. Instead of the images acting as a supplement to the text, this publication highlights the use of photographs as the predominant medium for the imparting of information. This publication is about Egypt that will ultimately describe every thing about Egypt in photos rather than words. Images are grouped in flash-dependent slideshows to maximize the interest of the reader on one hand and the ease of use on the other hand.

When i talk about images, i mean sill images, with no verbal or written comments or background music. This publication is composed of Voiceless, commentless, musicless, and motionless still images, the whole story is told by still images and still images only. Comments and music will direct the viewer to a certain direction and that is not what i mean or want. The limitation here is your imagination.

Figure 1. The CD-ROM version

This publication represents what is called photojournalism. Photojournalism is a particular form of journalism (the collecting, editing, and presenting of news material for publication or broadcast) that creates images in order to tell a news story. It is now usually understood to refer only to still images, but in some cases the term also refers to video used in broadcast journalism. Photojournalism is distinguished from other close branches of photography (e.g., documentary photography, social documentary photography, street photography or celebrity photography) by complying with a rigid ethical framework which demands that the work is both honest and impartial whilst telling the story in strictly journalistic terms. Photojournalists create pictures that contribute to the news media.

Both the Online version and the CD-ROM version are ever growing publications that is to say "more and more data and slideshows are added on regular basis".

You need adobe flash player (which must be installed in your computer) to be able to play the slideshows.

Please note that The CD-ROM and the downloadable publications are supplied as is without any warranty whatsoever, either publications are not designed to fit any of your purposes or to meet any of your requirement.
