Photo Workshop

We all have hundreds (or in my case 17,352 at last count) of digital photos, as well as earlier printed ones scattered across multiple devices, photo albums and in drawers. It upsets me a lot to read about someone who's lost their phone with all their photos on it or had a house fire and they don't have a backup of them.

 

Learn to organise all your photos, sync them between devices, share them, scan old photos, save them and, most importantly, back them up. You'll also learn how to edit them to make bad photos better & improve others, and how to use them in personalised calendars, photo books and more.

Small classes in a relaxed, friendly environment. Basic computer skills would be an advantage. Bring your own laptop or use one of our computers.
