      Speaker:  Creta & Bill Lenzke

Bill and Creta will be returning for a follow-up to their April program. 
If you attended the first presentation in April, and tried a few of the demonstrated methods, were you successful? If not; what problems did you encounter? If you contact us with any problems, we can be prepared to discuss them. You can email us: 

We will examine a few applications for viewing and modifying photographs for the purpose of correcting major blemishes, and cropping for details. Plus, we will show you how to embed comments into the photograph so even if the title gets changed, the important data about the photo will be preserved.

For people that missed the April meeting, we will have the original handouts and be available to review some of the techniques. We will be in our usual space, Anderson Room A, with a video projector and wall screen (and more room!) 

Please join us if you live in the Salem area. Our programs are always open to the public.
