I've set up a new fall workshop series for 2017, due to be held on the 4th Thursday of every month at the McMillan Arts Centre in Parksville from 2-4 pm
Aug 24 - Intro To Mac Part 1 - In this two hour workshop, we’ll explore the rudiments of the Finder and System Preferences to better understand and organize your files. Time Machine Backups, basic folder structure, anti-virus and security options. Learn basic Mac and computer terminology, how to use the Sidebar and Desktop more effectively, best practices for maintenance and more. It’s recommended but not necessary that you bring your Mac laptop if possible. Here's a link to the event page and for tickets.
Sept 28 2-4 pm - Intro To Mac Part 2
In this second installment of the Mac computer workshop series, we'll explore the native OSX applications, such as Mail, Safari, Photos, Contacts, Calendars and iTunes, as well as Preview, Quicktime etc.. Learn how to attach a photo to an email, how to create a group email message, how to create a photo album or playlist, effective web-surfing strategies, Bookmarks, etc. Info and tickets here
Printing Photobooks and Calendars - Oct 26 2-4 pm
This will be a hands-on workshop instructing you how to create photo books, calendars and cards using your Mac's Photos apps. There was a time when we would have old-style photo books on our living room coffee tables, and browsing family photo albums was a social occasion. Now, with Photo libraries upwards of 10, 20, even 50,000 photos, it's simply unrealistic for your guests to enjoy your pictures. We're going to explore and work on creating calendars, photo albums and personalized cards using the Mac OS Photos application. Click here for details and tickets
iPhones, iPads and the iCloud - November 23 2-4 pm
Right now, there is more computing power in your back pocket than NASA used to put a man on the moon. One of the most common questions I get in the course of my daily work, is "What the heck is the iCloud, and what does it mean to me?" This 2 hour workshop sets out to explain what Cloud computing means, and how to put this advanced, but simple to use technology to work for you and your multiple devices. Learn to sync your contacts, your calendars, your music and your photos on all your Cloud capable devices. Click Here For Tickets and Details
