Sidewalk Breakfast

SIG Leader: John S Krill

Sunday’s meeting I will discuss two software utilities that may help you keep your photos up to date and a handy web site that allows you to send very large files to anyone. Lastly we will go over Photoshop Elements Organizer. We have spent a lot of time with Picasa but very little with elements native image organizer.

SyncToy 2.1 is a free application that synchronizes files and folders between locations. Typical uses include sharing files, such as photos, with other computers and creating backup copies of files and folders.. You can download the utility from here.

The second utility is a web tool called You Send It. The web site is www.yousendit.com. Because most, if not all, e-mail services put a limit on the size of files you can send you need another option for sending large files. If you send photos to friends and family you may have already encountered the size restrictions at your e-mail service. You Send It lets you send very large files. If you are sending more than one file you only need to ZIP your files and then upload it toYou Send It. All they require is the e-mail address of the recipient. They will notify them when the file is ready to be downloaded.

Photoshop Elements Organizer is Elements native tool for keeping track of all your photos. We will go over Importing your pictures, Adding Keyword Tags, and using Albums for collecting photos from multiple locations with a common theme.

As always we will answer any and all questions.

If you have a special request for information regarding digital photography let me know. E-mail me using the address listed below.
