Tech Meetup: An Introduction To Photoshop Elements – Friday January 19, 12:00 PM

Posted by Michael Gorzka on January 8th, 2018

Craig Snapp, our Google Earth/Maps Wizard, is not only an amateur mapping geek, he’s also a serious hobby photographer. He recommends the affordable ($70-$100) Photoshop Elements 2018 program for beginning or intermediate photographers that want to get more serious about editing and organizing their image files.

The program features a built-in Organizer and Quick, Guided and Expert tabs for editing. The Help tab also leads directly to an extensive library of friendly online video tutorials.

Craig will be giving an overview and demonstrating some of the major features of this downloadable, friendly and powerful program.

In the meantime, check out Craig’s photography gallery on Curtis Creative Spaces:

You’ve read the book, now see the movie!

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history.

Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.
