Mac Classes - May '12

Welcome to May everyone!

Here's hoping you had a wonderful time dancing around the Maypole yesterday! What better way to spend a Monday, eh? On to the class news for the month:

 On Saturday, May 12th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will once again be offering my popular iPhoto class. Come learn everything there is to know about Apple's powerful digital photo organization/editing program. Is it finally time to get your photo library under control, with the added bonus of learning how easy (and fun) the process can be? Well then, this is the class for you! I will be covering both the latest version (iPhoto '11) as well as the previous ('09) version. Cost for this class is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall. No sign-up necessary, and it's open to drop-ins, so come if you can!

 Then, on Saturday, May 26th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be presenting a new class: Introduction to WordPress. This will definitely be an intro-level class, covering the basics of setting up a new Wordpress site, or administering one that's already set up. For simplicity's sake, I will demonstrate the process available at wordpress.com that allows you to get started with a new blog in minutes, without having to buy a domain name or figure out a host to use. However, migrating your new site to a custom domain/host is easy to do later.

If you've been wondering how difficult it might be to start your own website/blog, and what the process involves, then plan on joining me for this informative session! Again, cost for this class is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall. Sign-up is not necessary, drop-ins are welcome!


 The regular FREE "Overview of Mac OS X" class takes place on the last Wednesday of every month, and this month that means it happens on Wednesday, May 30th from 5-7 p.m. These overview classes are held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library. There are only eight seats available, and the Library has asked that I handle the sign ups, so give me a call at 970-417-8434 (or drop me an email) if you'd like to attend. (Be aware that first-timers take priority over anyone who has taken the class before, but there are often openings for repeaters).

There are six Macs in the computer lab, so only two of the eight attendees need their own laptops. This class is beginner-oriented, but we cover some different things every month; repeat attendees are encouraged (when there's room)!

Take care everyone, and have a great month!!

And as always, let me know if there's something else you'd like me to consider covering in the Saturday sessions.
