The Jackson County Public Library in downtown Sylva will offer a free class on editing digital photos online on Wednesday, June 29th at 5:45 p.m.
The class will introduce participants to a free online image editing website called Pixlr. Participants will learn to resize and crop, apply special effects, create a collage and to save the images back to the computer. Attendees may bring their own images to work with on a flash drive, but this is not necessary. The class is appropriate for anyone who works with images from a digital source such as a digital camera, cell phone or from a DVD. Some basic computer skills are required, such as using a keyboard and mouse and the ability to browse websites.
Library Technology Volunteer Jim Geary will teach the class with library staff member Laura Chapman. Geary is a recent transplant to North Carolina who has had a long career in technology and education.
Class size is limited to the first 16 people who sign up. To do so, or for more information, please call the Jackson County Public Library at 586-2016. This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library.
