Digital Photography SIG
This SIG meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7.p.m.
Taking pictures has never been easier. Make use of your Virtual Darkroom and join us!
We play with digital photos from cameras or film scanners. We try to improve them with good software,
and then display them either in print or on screen. It's lots of fun and we all learn together!

Drop Box Cloud Storage

February 28, 2017

We are using digital photography more and more. And that means taking more and more pictures. And that takes more and more space on our computers or possibly in the CLOUD. So what is the Cloud? The Cloud is an enormous storage space, whether you are using iCloud drive, One drive, Dropbox or any of the numerous cloud storage sites. This month we will take a look at one of the storage cloud sites - Dropbox. Dropbox was one of the early cloud storage sites and is still well respected. We will take a look at how to sign up, how to transfer pictures, how to share pictures with others, and at some of the costs associated with it. Dropbox will also store your documents. I will also revisit – an on-line learning center. Folks from the library showed CKCS how to use it at one of our recent Tech Nights. This can be costly but is free if you have a membership with the Lexington Public Library. I will demonstrate the steps to view different learning programs – including Dropbox. If you go to their site, you can have a free 10 day learning session. .
