Linux

When you have Linux installed, you are never again confronted by a virus or malware. You use your computer all the time without concern. And Linux systems have everything you will ever need. Systems such as Ubuntu or Kubuntu have thousands of files, including Word Processing, Graphics, Internet, Photo Manipulation, and Presentations. Backing up Linux are thousands of programmers scattered all over the world who are constantly preparing new material.

Imaging SIG

Our Imaging SIG has a very interactive format. We meet monthly to share information we've learned about - digital photography, new and related updated computer photography programs. The programs we generally use are Gimp and Photoshop Elements.
By working on special projects, entering - and winning - image/photographic contests, makes us enjoy our learning experience even more. We also take field trips to local exotic places to take photographs. We then discuss the pictures and experiment to learn new ways to use Photo Shop to manipulate the photos. Bring your projects to the Imaging SIG and let us help you with them.

So come and join us - every 2nd Monday evening at 7:00 PM
Call Susie Phelps at (818) 848-9810 or Email her for updated information.
