The beginner’s Q & A will begin at 6:30 PM with Glen Terry and Jim Pernal answering your questions.

The main presentation (at 8PM) will be  “Apple Photos” by Allson Sheridan

Allison bit the bullet and moved from Aperture over to the new Apple Photos even though she has nearly 60,000 photos in her library.  Photos is much more capable than most people give it credit for, so during this talk you’ll learn about the hidden tools available to you.  After showing you what Photos can do out of the box, she’ll show you some new plugins from a company called Macphun.  They’ve developed the Creative Kit 2016 to be accessible from within Photos and they bring your photography editing tools up to a whole new level. If you haven’t seen Allison speak before, you’re in for a treat as she teaches and entertains with her own unique style.

Also, Tom Thorpe will continue his series on Internet Basics with a short presentation titled Hey, Mac. His presentation will precede Allison’s.
