Daily Thoughts 06/11/2013
This morning, I read some more of Digital Photography for Dummies. I am almost done reading it. I am learning about printers for digital photography right now. I am planning on reading a basic book on Photoshop Elements which is an easier version of Adobe Photoshop as well as reading a more general book on photography. The library has a fairly large photography collection.
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning and checked the displays. Right now, I am working on the e-blast list. I am pulling together a few things to make it work well. There is construction in the workroom so I have to take some of my stuff out of there.
I checked the book Digital Photography Masterclass by Tom Ang out. It should be interesting. I finished reading Digital Photography for Dummies during lunch.
There are two computer classes tonight, a beginning Microsoft Word class and a Fundamentals of Computer Operations class. There is going to be a meeting of the website committee on Thursday. We should be working on making some changes.
