Happy New Year everyone!! Phew, we made it through the holidays; I hope you all had a grand time with the ones you love.

I’ve got some exciting news to share for 2013! Check it out below…

Read on for the details…

 To kick off the new year, on Saturday, January 12th, from 10 a.m. 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 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, January 26th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I’m offering a comprehensive class on Apple’s Numbers program. I’ve had several requests for this class recently, so if you’re interested in learning the ins and outs of Apple’s spreadsheet program, as well as finding out just how user-friendly a spreadsheet app can be, then be sure to join me on the 26th. This class is also $20, also at the Ridgway Town Hall. No sign-up necessary, as above; don’t miss it!

***Now for the big news for 2013***:

 The Ridgway Library has given me the go-ahead to switch up my regular FREE Mac OS X Overview class, which takes place on the last Wednesday of every month. Starting this month, I’m going to alternate monthly between the Mac OS X Overview and an iPad/iPhone Overview! So, this month I’m going to start with the FREE iPad/iPhone Overview on Wednesday, January 30th from 5-7 p.m. These overview classes are always 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).

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)!

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.
