April 1 News

April 1, 2014 - The Record has just announced that starting today all photos printed in the paper and on its Web site Recordnet.com will be in black and white. As printing costs skyrocket all papers are looking for ways to save money and not having to buy the cyan, magenta and yellow inks can produce significant cost savings. To that effect, all of the photographers’ cameras have been modified to shoot only in black and white. The Web site photos will also lose their colors to save the number of pixels displayed on computers. The pictures won’t be as colorful but the upside is that they should load more quickly.
