Happy Colorado Day everyone, and welcome to August! The summer is absolutely flying by, as usual. What a great one it’s been though. I hope some of you got to join us for one or more of the concerts in the Ridgway Town Park (on our new stage) in July; they were fantastic!!

On to the class news…

Class list for August 2013:

Sat., August 17th, from 10 am to noon: iPhoto; Ridgway Town Hall
Wed., August 28th from 5-7 pm: FREE Mac OS X Overview; Ridgway Library
Sat., August 31st, from 10 am to noon: Intermediate iPad/iPhone; Ridgway Town Hall

The details:

 First, on Saturday, August 17th, from 10 am to noon, I will once again be offering my in-depth class on iPhoto. Come learn everything there is to know about Apple’s powerful digital image 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 primarily cover the latest version (iPhoto ’11) but can touch on the previous (’09) version when necessary. 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!

 Next, it’s the FREE Mac OS X Overview, and it will take place on Wednesday, August 28th from 5-7 pm. The Mac overview classes are always held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library, while the iPad/iPhone ones are held in their small meeting room. There are only eight seats available, so you have to sign up, 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).

[For the iPad/iPhone Overview, you’ll need to bring your own device. For the Mac Overview, 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)!]

 Lastly, on Saturday, August 31st, from 10 am to noon, I will again offer my Intermediate iPad/iPhone program. In this class I will take you to the next level with your iOS device: Apps, Books (audio and e-books), Movies, Music, Photography (both shooting and editing), and more! In general, how to use your device to do the really cutting-edge stuff! Cost for this class is also $20, and it’s held at the Ridgway Town Hall. As above, no sign-up is necessary, drop-ins are welcome!

Take care everyone, and have a great month!!

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