April 2009: What's New in iWork '09

Join us Thursday, April 23, at 6:30 pm at the Metrum Credit Union for an overview of what's new in iWork '09. (I particularly am excited about the flashy new features of Keynote!) See you there!

August 2009 -- Final Cut Express

Join us Thursday, August 27, to learn about Final Cut Express -- the Apple program that's a "cut above" iMovie. If you're not ready to spend the really big bucks for the professional-level Final Cut Pro, but you need more than iMovie, Final Cut Express may very well be what you're looking for.

We'll meet as usual at Metrum Credit Union at 6:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you!

February 2009: What's New in iLife '09

Join us on Thursday, February 26, at Metrum Credit Union at 6:30 pm! Craig Lewis and Chris Domino will discuss and demo what's new in iLife '09. What's different? Is it worth the upgrade? And what does it take to run the latest version of iLife? Everyone welcome!

January 2009 Presentation -- Fotomagico

Join us Thursday, January 22, at Metrum Credit Union at 6:30 pm. Craig Lewis will be presenting an overview of Fotomagico, a great tool for creating stunning photo slideshows and burning DVDs. Fotomagico lets you take photos from anywhere on your Mac -- iPhoto, Lightroom, Aperture, file folders -- and turn them into compelling stories, complete with music from your iTunes collection. Read more at http://www.boinx.com/fotomagico/overview, and join us next Thursday!

July 2009 Presentation — Flash!

Join us on Thursday, July 23, at 6:30 p.m. at the Metrum Credit Union for an introduction to Adobe Flash. What is it? A way to add animation, video, and interactivity to web pages. Learn what it does and the basics of how it works. We look forward to seeing you there!

June 2009 -- A Hot New Toast

The latest version of Toast sizzles -- as this product always does! Join us Thursday, June 25th, at the Metrum Credit Union at 6:30 pm to hear Craig talk about all the wonderful features of this very, very useful program. While it primarily burns CDs and DVDs, it also comes with many useful add-ons. Join us!

May 2009 — Building Better Presentations

Join us on Thursday, May 28, at 6:30 pm at the Metrum Credit Union! We'll be talking about how to build better presentations. We will be drawing upon advice from several excellent books and websites. While the demo will be done mostly in Keynote (the iWork '09 version), we will refer to PowerPoint as well. If you have wonderfully BAD examples to share, please bring them on a thumb drive or make a note of the web address. We can learn just as much, if not more, from a bad example as a good one. (Of course, if you have good examples, feel free to bring those, too!)

October 2009 -- Lightroom!

Join us Thursday, October 22, at 6:30 at the Metrum Credit Union! Craig Lewis will be presenting Adobe's Lightroom -- which may very well become almost the only photography application you need. If you shoot more than snapshots, come see what this program can do for you!

September 2009 -- Favorite Multimedia Websites

What are your favorite sites for multimedia? Join us on Thursday, September 24, at 6:30 pm at the Metrum Credit Union. We'll all be contributing our favorite sites and showing off what makes them valuable to us. Any kind of site that touches on multimedia is suitable. Compile a list to bring (we'll provide the computer) or send Chris or Craig your list ahead of time so that we can bookmark the sites and navigate to them with one click.
