Workshop Content

For the third straight year, the Ottawa PC Users' Group will be offering a beginners' workshop; however, this year, the approach will be a little more "focused" as we cover the basics of purchasing a digital camera and processing the resulting images.

Our workshop will be held on Saturday, November 19, 2005, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Heron Road Community Centre, 1480 Heron Road, Ottawa.

If you are planning to move from film to digital images, are thinking of upgrading your current digital camera, or want to know how to take your pictures from snapshots to works of art, this just might be the workshop for you.

Club members who have spent considerable time researching the associated issues, and developing advanced digital imaging techniques, will share their knowledge and expertise with workshop participants in four basic sessions:

Digital Cameras Buying a Digital Camera
When selecting a digital camera, you are faced with a bewildering variety of choices. This session will discuss the important features and help you sort the wheat from the chaff.
Image Processing Image Processing
This session will illustrate the power of advanced image editing. We will explain technical stuff like colour depth and show you how to transform images every which way.
Image Printing Output Options

Need a fix? Problems and Solutions
