The family is coming over, and you’re dying to show them your vacation pictures from your digital camera. The only problem is you don’t know a megabyte from a mega-nibble. What do you do? Don’t panic! Fort Bend County Libraries will present classes this month on digital photography basics and editing tools and options.
On Thursday, May 9, the University Branch Library will present “Digital Photography Basics” beginning at 2:00 pm, in the Computer Lab of the library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
A staff person from Adult Services department of the library will discuss the basics of transferring pictures from a digital camera to a computer, sending pictures by email, and uploading pictures to an online photo album.
Those attending the class are encouraged to bring their fully-charged digital cameras, memory card, USB cable or separate memory-card reader, camera manual, and an active email address with password to the class for hand-on instruction.
