Area 16 Computers and Technology

Chairman:  Neil Schmidt (np_schmidt@pacbell.net) 

The next meeting of the SIR Area 16 Computer and Technology Group will be at the Walnut Creek Elks Lodge (1475 Creekside Dr., WC) on Thursday, February 20, 2020 starting at 9:30 am. Sirs from all branches and their guests, including spouses, are welcome and invited to attend.  Plan to come a little early and for coffee, goodies and to chat.

The February presentation topic will be “Editing Photos With Your Mobile Devices” by Derek Southern. Derek will show you how to edit your own pictures on your smart phone. By using just a few simple sliders you can quickly make your pictures look incredibly better, you will wow and impress your friends. He will demonstrate a free app (for Android and Apple phones) called SNAPSEED. He will also mention the free version of Adobe’s Lightroom for smart phones.  Your phone may include a photo editor, but you’ll see that Snapseed offers many more capabilities while being simple to use. Load Snapseed onto your smart phone and edit your own images, as you watch Derek’s live, onscreen presentation.

We look forward to seeing you at the Walnut Creek Elks Lodge (1475 Creekside Dr., WC) on Thursday, October 17, 2019 about 9:15 AM.  Sirs from all branches and their guests, including spouses, are welcome and invited to attend.
