Tuesday, 21 February 2017
6:30 PM

Large Meeting Room, Thornton Oaks Retirement Community
25 Thornton Way, Brunswick, Maine 04011

Featured Program: “How to Shoot the Family, Hang the Kids, and Frame the Neighbors Without Getting Caught”

One of the most requested topics over the last few months has been Photos.  Photos, like in taking pictures. Photos, like the Mac application.  This month we’ll begin a multi-part series on digital photography.  In the first segment we’ll FOCUS on the basics of digital photography, DEVELOP an understanding of managing images on the Mac, and EXPOSE many techniques to make your photos look their best.  (As you can see, I LEICA good pun) Next month we’ll delve deeper into advanced editing, sharing, iCloud solutions, and how “all your photos, everywhere, all the time” can actually work.

Whether you’re an amateur iPhone human selfie stick or the next Ansel Adams, there’ll be something for you. It’ll be a SNAP! Get the PICTURE?  (See what I did there?)  I SHUTTER to think what you’ll miss if you aren’t there.

MMOOSDroppings Mail List

To promote community for members of the Maine Macintosh Owners & Operators Society and to provide a means for Apple users to help each other in times of need, we’ve created a mail list, aptly called “MMOOSDroppings”. MMOOSDroppings was the name of our longtime newsletter, but 1995 called and they want their trees-crying-out-in-the- forest paper newsletter back.

If you’re not familiar, here’s how a mail list works. You subscribe to the mail list with your email address. Let’s say you have a question/comment about how to do something with your Apple device. You send the question/comment in an email to the list email address, and everyone subscribed to the list receives your email. Let’s say someone else has the answer, responds via email to the list email address, and everyone else sees the answer. It’s a great way to spread information and build community – Apple users helping Apple users. It’s what it’s all about.

The only trick to the list is that once you subscribe with a given email address you have to use that address for future “posts” to the list, or they will “bounce” and no one will see them. Also, we don’t allow attachments of any kind. There’s nothing to keep you from sending an image via off-list, personal email, to someone who may be helping you.

While we don’t restrict anyone from subscribing, we do moderate the list and if anyone uses the list for any “unto wards” reasons, or is not a good list citizen, they will be removed promptly.

See you on the list!

Mail List Tips:

Remember that everyone on the list can read your posts. Also, you will be able to see the email address of other list members on their posts. If you have a personal message to another list member, email them directly.

Don’t say anything on the list that you wouldn’t want printed on the front page of the local newspaper.

Trim irrelevant information out of your posts. You should, however, leave parts of previous posts that help to remind members what you’re posting about.

If you are starting a new topic, please make sure the SUBJECT of the new email reflects the new topic.

HAVE FUN!
