Computer class this Saturday at the Senior Center:

Seminar on Digital Photography: this will be Part 2 of our two-part seminar on the basics of digital photography (but it’s not necessary that you took Part 1 to attend). Part 2 will cover making some basic (but important) enhancements to your photos, showing them as slideshows on your computer or HDTV, providing copies to others and backing up your photos. Bring your cameras and computers to work along with us if you wish. At a pace that all can handle, we’ll demonstrate the techniques using a computer running Windows 7 along with the free photo software package Windows Photo Gallery. The seminar is scheduled for Saturday from 9 – 11 a.m. at the Senior Center in Frisco. The cost is $5 and the session is limited to 25 so please call the Senior Center to pre-register (at 970-668-2940). Walk-ins will need to be turned away if the class limit is reached on the day of the seminar.
