For more than 146 years, news has flowed to the journalists at The Florida Times-Union, who combined it first into a daily paper and ultimately into a website full of articles. The paper reports international news, as it has since it followed the trial of a handful of Irish revolutionaries in 1883. It also covers sports, entertainment, and money, with portions of the digital content devoted to videos and classifieds.

Armed with high-quality photo paper and photo-finishing equipment, Harmon Photo's staff transforms digital photos into tangible keepsakes. Memory-card images enter the real world in forms including standard 4"x6" prints, massive 40"x60" canvases, and plush pillows. Conversely, non-digital items—such as photos, drawings, and degrees—hop into a flatbed scanner to enter cyberspace, where they can be resized, restored, and emailed. Upon request, technicians enhance photos by adjusting color and brightness and cropping out cousins who turned out to just be escaped orangutans.
