At the last meeting, participants had fun with photos, and there is still more to cover using photos from a camera or images from your iPhone or iPad! Learn how to turn those wonderful memories into albums, to edit your images, to make an easy slideshow, and to take better pictures.

At the end of each session there is a 15 minute opportunity for Q & A on anything related to Apple computer or devices.
