Each month, we hold a workshop that consists of a "Question and Answer" session on any computer issues followed by a talk on a current computer topic. The presentations will be on the first Tuesday of the month, beginning at 2:00 p.m., in the meeting room at the Ewing Community Center, 999 Lower Ferry Road. The program, which is free and open to the public, will be preceded at 1:30 p.m. by an open question and answer session during which audience members will be invited to present their computer questions. No prior registration is required.
On Tuesday, March 7, Computer Learning Center instructor Georgette Rogers will present “Photobooks: The Compact Way To Store Your Memories,” the latest public service program in the CLC’s “Computer Tips and Tricks” series. The free program will begin at 2 p.m. in the Ewing Senior and Community Center at 999 Lower Ferry Road. It will be preceded at 1:30 p.m. by “Q’s and A’s with the CLC Faculty” when the audience can seek answers to their computer-related questions. Both programs are free and no registration is required.
“What happens to all those photos you snap during vacations, family events, and other occasions?” Rogers asks. “Like most people you may print a few, leaving the rest to get stored and forgotten on your computer, or you may print most of them and make traditional photo albums. The problem is those albums are typically large, take up a lot of space and yellow over time. You may have thought of making a computer-generated photobook using one of the services available today, but you just don’t know where to start. The good news is that making digital photobooks is easier than you think.”
During her presentation, Rogers will address such issues as the benefits of photobooks, how to pick a theme, websites you can use, how to get started, what options are available, and the costs involved. “My hope is that the audience will leave the program truly excited to start making a photobook,” Rogers adds. For those hesitant to start a photobook on their own, Rogers plans to teach a hands-on class at the CLC in April. Registration forms for that course and others will be available after the program.
Originally from Long Island, Rogers has lived and worked in New Jersey for over 30 years. Now retired from the Hopewell Valley Regional School District where she served as a school counselor for 20 years, Rogers had previously worked for the Hunterdon Medical Center in the Behavioral Health Department. During her career she also served as an adjunct instructor in psychology at both Mercer County Community College and The College of New Jersey. Rogers holds a bachelors degree in Music Therapy from the University of Kansas and a masters degree in Counseling from Western Michigan University.
