Wow, how did it get to be September already?? Anyone else feel like things are getting just a little out of control in the flying-time department? Oh well, at least we have Mac classes to keep us entertained while we’re flying, right? On to the details:

 On Saturday, September 15th, 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!       

 On Saturday, September 29th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be revisiting the topic of Social Networking. In this class I will cover Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc., etc. The emphasis will be on figuring out how to navigate these wild & crazy new social fads, especially as more and more changes happen (over and over again!) on Facebook & now Google+ as well… At the same time, you’ll learn how to maintain the privacy levels we all prefer. If there’s interest, I will also cover the ways in which these tools can be put to use in marketing a business. Cost for this class is also $20, and it is held at the Ridgway Town Hall. As above, no sign-up is necessary, drop-ins are welcome!

Then, don’t forget…

 The regular FREE “Overview of Mac OS X” class, which takes place on the last Wednesday of every month, and this month it happens on Wednesday, September 26th 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)!

And here’s hoping you all enjoy a gorgeous Indian Summer in the coming weeks!
