The family is coming over, and you’re dying to show them your vacation and holiday 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’ University Branch Library, 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land on the UH campus, will present an introductory program, “Digital Photography for Beginners,” on Thursday, January 10, beginning at 2:00 pm, in the Computer Lab.
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. Saving pictures to a computer disk or online not only saves storage space, it also preserves the printed pictures from damage or age.
Participants 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.
The class is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required. To register online at the library’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), click on “Calendar,” select “University Branch Library,” and find the program. Participants may also register by calling the library at 281-633-5100, or by visiting the library.
