Begins August 7
Today most of us have cameras wherever we go. Your phone, e-reader, or tablet can take a picture anywhere. But what are you going to do with those pictures once you take them? That's what this course is all about.
Some of the photos we take just don't turn out the way we would like them to. We get more things into them than we want. The exposure is too light or too dark. The flash somehow turns our subject's eyes red.
Not to worry, there are solutions to all of those problems using free software. But you can also go further than simply fixing a photo. What about creating a photo project? You can create digital video slide shows, add text to pictures, distort them for fun effects, create collages and even turn your photos into T-Shirts, mugs, and other products.
This course will show you how to do all of those things. Best of all, IT'S FREE!!

Terri Main got her first computer, a peg board with wires, screws, and brass brads, in high school, but her heart has always been with the humanities. Her first "computer" was designed to create random characters for her stories.
"I couldn't care less about the hardware as long as it does something useful," she notes. This blending of tech competence with a practical humanistic view of computers has helped her bridge the gap between techies and those who consider themselves technophobes. She shows ordinary, non-techie, people how to use technology to improve their lives.
"You don't have to be 20 something, socially inept,playing video games till 3 am, living off protein bars and energy drinks to develop technological competence," Main asserts. "The great secret is today, the programs are so sophisticated, they do most of the work for you."
