Computer Night For Photographers (Anyone wishing to be more geeky)

So, As a photographer in our time, we need computers.

We do post, we show off, even apply for competitions. Pushing into the professional, we need to manage our photos.

This Evening, will talk about computer basics, and some intermediate techniques about computers.

 

This will talk about, Computer hardware, just simply, understanding what your talking about, and what it means to photographers. Windows, organizing files and folders. Changing names. Making folders, what the heck is a short cut.

And the difference in between. “ WT (heck) “ is the cloud? 500px, FLICKR, Facebook, Instagram, Viewbug, gurushots, woa! Emailing – signs of a scam (its important)
