Initially, sending fax involved the transmission of scanned printed material from the sender to the receiver over the telephone system. Today, fax messages can be sent over the internet. They can be sent from Gmail. Gmail may be only 15 years old, but its popularity among internet users, especially businesses, has grown exponentially over the years. Its fast transmission of messages from one end to the other deserves plaudits. I will explain how to send a fax message from Gmail in this how-to guide.

 

Step One: Get the Right Fax Service for Your Needs

If you don’t have an email-to-fax service, you need to get one. This service integrates online faxing services with the Gmail platform. It links a fax line or number to your Gmail address and gives you a domain for your faxing service. This domain allows you to send and receive faxes on the Gmail platform. There are several such services, and you are advised to choose the one that serves your needs right.

 

e-faxStep Two: Compose a New Email Message

Once you get the right email-to-fax system, let faxing on the Gmail platform begin. Create a new email in the usual way. Click on the compose button to get started. This time, you will send the email to an address that includes the fax number of the receiver and your fax service domain, not a plain email address as it is the case in the traditional mail setup. For example, if the recipient’s fax number is 1-714-994-9945 and your fax service domain is efaxservice.com, you will address the email to 1-714-994-9945@efaxservice.com. You must make sure that the address is written correctly. Otherwise, the message will not be sent.

 

Step Three: Add Content to the Body of the Efax

In this step, you will add the message that you want to send to the receiver. You may find it necessary to add a cover page, but that is optional. You can attach the document to be sent to the receiver easily using the attach files icon. The document can be DOC, JPG, PDF file, or a TXT file. XLS and TIFF files are also accepted. You can attach multiple documents with ease. They will be put together when the message is being sent to the receiver.

 

Step Four: Proofread and Send

It is always good to proofread your eFax to make sure that it contains exactly what you want to send to the receiver. Make sure that the receiver’s fax number and area code are correct. Make sure that you have added the right domain for your eFax service as well. If the attached documents are ok, you can click send’ to send the message. The receiver will receive the message in a few minutes. You will get a confirmation that your message has been sent as well.

In summary, online faxing is easy with Gmail. There may not be a specific feature for faxing on Gmail, but we have just explained how easy it is to send a fax from Gmail. You no longer need a fax machine or a dedicated telephone number to send fax messages. A Gmail account and an email-to-fax service are all you need.…

History of Filmmaking

Movies have been an integral part of today’s society, and most people refer to it as one of the most entertaining forms of entertainment. Due to the presence of advanced technology in the field, filmmakers are able to bring imagination to reality. With the presence of the digital camera, proper lighting, computer-generated imagery, and high-quality sound recorders and processors, looking at the widescreen feels like experiencing the scene in real life. In fact, it is indeed what those innovations are all about, and it aims to support filmmakers to capture reality and present it through images and scenes.

With all the available options and quality products, people often wonder about what the subject was like before it gained wider popularity. In the nineteenth century, films were different and still a subject to limited technology and techniques. Filmmakers in that era may have a bunch of images in their heads that needed to be properly portrayed through the screens, but the limited technology and devices seemed to be the only reason why it took centuries for them to reach the point where directors can eventually produce high-quality images. Thus, this article aims to discuss the process and history of filmmaking.

The Beginning

a wide traditional cinemaMost people generally assume that the history of filmmaking started with the invention of the camera as one of the main tools to capture reality. For this reason, they instantly turn to references that mention the history of the camera that sites and pages like IamI The Film Facebook offer instead of digging deeper to the basic concepts of reality portrayal through screens. The most primitive ways of presenting images through screens were invented in the seventeenth century when an Italian man utilized candles to create shadows on a white sheet. The sheet acted as a screen in which all the objects, or props, were portrayed following certain storylines.

The 1800s

Following the above primitive show, more people invented new techniques with similar concepts that pretty much gave the effects of motion illusion. The new technology soon caught the attention of the public, and experts began working on new projects called a zoopraxiscope, fantascope, and a thaumatrope. During the century, it became one of the greatest breakthrough that revolutionized the way people enjoyed public shows.

The Camera

It was not until the 1890s that people interested in the field were able to create a mechanism that allows them to create advanced imageries. Of course, it involved the use of a camera, a once quite simple device to capture images that later became the basic ideas for further developments. Thanks to these developments, people these days can enjoy much more sophisticated advances and high-quality movies.…

The Impacts of Technology on Music Industry

Compared to decades ago, the music industry has been a totally different place with all the newly-developed features and characteristics. Among all other factors that profoundly triggered the changes, the presence of technology and its constant developments are the top reason why the new realm of the music industry becomes an inevitable phenomenon. Just like another life aspect that technology has impacts on, the industry also undergoes a series of shifting regarding the production stage and how people accept the songs. These aspects relate to the presence of the Internet and the vast spread of information that follows.

The Reception

In the history of music making, record labels are an integral part of the whole process. Some even refer to the company as a boiling pot where songs of all genres are processed and prepared before releasing it to the public. For this reason, it is safe to conclude that the label industry plays a vital role in delivering the composition to its enthusiasts. As they hold the key to the success of the artists, those joining the industry become familiar with the term industry politics, meaning the company acts as a sole determinant whether or not the society will like certain songs and music.

Things are, of course, different these days where the Internet seems to take over all the above roles. As the impacts of such politics fade, artists can stand on their feet to create and stick to the genres that they prefer. Platforms, such as Youtube and MySpace, are some of the examples. From black metal to raggamuffin love lyrics, the platforms become their main gates to connect with the listeners. In short, the presence of technology supports them to build an audience without the involvement of record companies.

New Devices

The presence of the new platforms also generates the invention of new tools to listen to the music. Traditionally, people were dependent on radios to listen to their favorite music. The introduction of a portable media player, or what people have been referring to as Walkman, which is smaller in size and more practical for mobile use was indeed one great breakthrough back then in the 1980s. However, the device still used conventional networks to fetch the songs. Things are different these days where smartphones become the main device for many purposes. As if it was not enough, the presence of several music apps, such as Spotify and Joox, became popular within months after the release.…
