January 2022 Meeting - LIMac Virtual Zoom Meeting with Dave Marra

LIMac Zoom January 2022 Meeting

Hey LIMac-ers, we're finally getting to do this! Our Friday, January 14th meeting will feature photo artist and friend of LIMac Dave Marra who will demonstrate his workflow using various iOS software apps to turn photographs into stunning works of art.

(From Dave's own…) ABOUT THE ARTIST
"Dave Marra is a modern digital artist specializing in transforming everyday photographs into digitally-painted masterpieces.
Using a series of apps, he carefully enhances and adjusts lighting, color, shadows, vignettes, and sharpness in each photo. Next, the photo is magically transformed into a beautiful digital "painting" -- for oil paint, watercolor, pastel, pencil drawing, or chalk.
Next, an artistic border is added, before the final step, which is applying a realistic material texture overlay to the photo art, for canvas, metal, wood, or stone, before signing it and printing it to high-quality photo paper, poster stock, or canvas.
Each piece takes many hours to produce and Dave's photo art creations can be seen in galleries, restaurants, businesses, and homes across the United States."

You’re Invited to the MacBasics SIG
In order to meet the needs of a wider range of members and not put off those with more than beginning skills, we’ve changed not only the name from Beginner SIG, but also the focus of our SIG. We will still cover applications like AppleWorks and simple procedures like setting up your first Mac, file systems and using utilities, but we’ve also matured, as much of Apple’s software and hardware has. So come on down. We'll be where we’ve always been, doing what we’ve always done, but with a new slant and a new name. The MacBasics SIG is led by Geoff Broadhurst and Rick Matteson. The SIG meeting is broken into two sessions. The first is from 7:00 to 7:30PM, during which we will have our own basic level question and answer session. We’ll break for the featured presentation and raffle and come back for the main portion of our SIG meeting from 8:30 to 10 o’clock. Of course before our MacBasics main demonstration we'll have our own novice Q&A session across the hall, while Bradley's dealing with the more complicated problems in the main room.

As always come with questions. The MacBasics SIG is not just for beginners, but we do discuss aspects of the Mac that may sometimes be overlooked. There will be a MacBasics SIG meeting this month. The topic has not been announced.


The App SIG, is the latest SIG from LIMac. It's a peer-to-peer group where members share their knowledge and experience with the
operating system iOS 7 and their favorite apps for their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

While the AppleTV does run iOS, it doesn't run
user apps. Nevertheless, it can play an important role in the mobile OS realm with streaming video and photos and screen mirroring.
Lets help each other here. There will be no App SIG meeting this month.
