Scrapbook SIG:
February 26 at 6:00 pm
Exploring the Elements Organizer for scrapbooking. We will look at importing pictures, rating pictures, tagging pictures and how to locate tagged and rated pictures so you can easily locate the best ones to use in your book. In preparation for this class you should locate (or create) a folder with 25-75 pictures that potentially could be used in your book. Alternately you could just identify a folder on your computer with this number of pictures that would work also. Look in the Presentation portion of this site to download and print the instructions.
