April Meeting - April 13th, 2018.
The Q&A session will start at 7:00 and run to 7:30 PM.
Are you still using iPhoto to organize and edit your pictures? Come to LIMac’s April meeting to get the inside story on Photos, Apple’s replacement for both iPhoto and Aperture. Since Aperture was originally a $499 program in 2008, can Photos provide all the capabilities and features of both Aperture and iPhoto?
The presentation will explore Photos’ capabilities including it’s ability to organize and find photos by location, date, type and face. Photos also offers both easy-to-use editing tools and sophiicated controls to help the photographer turn a snapshot into a breathtaking picture.
Since Photos’ capabilities make it possible to do in-depth editing, we will demonstrate how to use Photos’ editing and retouching capabilities and test when the law of diminishing returns sets in and a photo is “good enough.” In addition, we will explore Photos’ new features such as Smart Albums which allow you to sort photos into albums based on user-defined rules.
Be sure to bring your MacBook or iPad to test and apply Photos’ capabilities to some of you favorite photos.
Your first meeting is FREE. Annual individual membership is $48.00, which covers all immediate members of your family & gives you access to our monthly electronic newsletter and member-only bulletin board and valuable discounts only available to Macintosh User Group members. Membership applications are available at the check-in desk.

|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
