ANSEL ADAMS FOR WINDOWS
ANSEL ADAMS IS JOINing the Digital Age--and Microsoft's Bill Gates is the beneficiary. On Apr. 2, Corbis, a Gates-owned company out to become the world's largest depository of digital images, announced it won exclusive electronic rights to the famed photographer's works. Bill Turnage, managing trustee of Adams' works, says Gates has the resources and vision to take the Adams works ``into the 21st century.'' In return, the trust gets higher royalties, and a Corbis pledge to spend up to $1 million, to develop a CD-ROM on Adams, due out in 1997.
