"The Digital Photo Guy" at CGSSD meeting on Saturday

From Linda Hervig's email to CGSSD members --

The Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego (CGSSD) meets on Saturday, March 21, 2009 from 9:00 am to noon. Note the new time for the break and start of the program.

9:00 - User groups for Family Tree Maker and Macintosh; and Special Interest Group on “New Genealogy Websites.” This month, our New SIG will take a look at your new "finds". John Kracha will bring in a few new links and enhanced older links. Members are encouraged to bring some favorite new sites/links and share with the rest of the group. This is an unstructured exchange of sites and we'll try to spend a few minutes on each to see how it can help us in our genealogy.

10:00 - A break and refreshments

10:15 - Announcements followed by Program
“The Digital Photo Guy and Photoshop Elements”
with The Digital Photo Guy, Lee Otsubo

In a live web cast, The Digital Photo Guy, will demonstrate Photoshop Elements to repair torn, wrinkled, stained and otherwise damaged photos. These are basic tips and tricks that anyone can apply using Photoshop Elements 7. The same tools and techniques can be used in PSE 4, 5 and 6. Older versions may not have all the tools. Attendees will be able to ask questions and interact with Lee during the live web cast via direct online connections. Visit The Digital Photo Guy at
