A promotional brochure for Kodak cameras, presented as an instructional guide to improving your photographic skills, titled '10 Kodak Ways to Improve Your Snapshots'. Printed in 1960 by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd, the brochure is divided into 3 sections: '10 good snapshots and what helped make them that way' which includes tips for better lighting, framing, colour etc; 'Ready for a New Camera?' which lists Kodak Brownies for sale; and 'When there's film left in your camera...' which lists ideas for photos to finish your film and develop it faster. These sorts of materials promoting photography were used to encourage people to take more photographs, use more film, and get more out of the products they do buy.

Part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
