The Lake Wildwood Macintosh Apple Corp (MAC CLUB) welcomes all of its members and visitors to our next monthly meeting.

The monthly meetings are held at 1:30 p.m in the beautiful Lake Wildwood Community center overlooking our lake. We are proud to provide an informative and entertaining presentation of some aspect of Macintosh applications. Also, each month we offer "Quick Tips" and a Q&A by one of our knowledgable members.  

We have a “picnic” outdoor social activity in September and a special holiday function in December.

Enjoy an on-line question and answer dialogue through our "list server" emails. This forum allows members to ask questions and share problems (yes, Mac users do have them!). Fellow Mac users respond with answers and solutions.

The club website is designed to keep folks informed.  There are links at the top page providing information:

* Future Meetings/Programs

* Photos of our activities.

* A page on Apple Corps Help, providing several ways members and guests can avail themselves of help and assistance.

Most of all we try to make our meetings and activities useful, fun and something to anticipate. So, come and visit us. Who knows you might even win one of our monthly door prizes!

Learn To Use Apple's New Photo App.

Site Link: Dennis Loggins

If you are struggling trying to fully understand the new Apple Photos app welcome to the club. Finally, after scratching my head trying to unlearn iPhoto and Learn Photos, I think I have found two videos on You Tube by David A. Fox I found extremely valuable. After watching both videos several times and trying out the procedures he demonstrates so ably I think I am getting a grasp of the new Photos apps (old dogs can learn new tricks with a little time and effort). The links are below.

The videos start with a short commercial which probably helps Mr Cox pay the bills. You will want to click on the small square at the bottom of the video to view it in full screen. By the way, to exit full screen click the Escape Key.

Program - Fred Crowder

I will demo on Affinity Photo as an alternative to Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. I will show the differences between Affinity and Photos image manipulation. Adobe Creative Suite has gone to a subscription business model. Affinity Photo is purchased once and has free updates. Affinity can do many things photoshop can, but uses a different approach. I will show basic steps and tutorials from Affinity.
