Our Next Meeting is Wednesday, 25th September 2019 at 7.30pm - our very first meeting in our new home at Rushmere Village Hall

Mac Housekeeping (Mark Elliss), Affinity Photo for iPad (Mike Kwasniak), Photographic Workflow (9 speakers) 

This packed meeting will start with a brief examination of current Mac software for ‘cleaning’ your Apple computer to ensure that it runs as quickly and smoothly as the day you bought it. There’s little to do these days, and Mark will explain the best procedures, and the software that is best avoided.

Mike will provide a brief demonstration of Serif’s powerful new photo editing software for the iPad, which is every bit as powerful as its built-for-OSX big brother.

The main subject for the evening will be a series of short presentations by professional, semi-professional and amateur photographers in the group, describing their workflows - the techniques they use for moving files from their camera to their computer, where and how they store them, their editing techniques and backup strategies. This should provide essential viewing for every member who uses a camera, at any level, and may provide new and interesting ways to organise and edit precious files.

How to Get to a Suffolk Mac User Group Meeting

We meet every other month on Wednesday evenings - from 7.30pm to 10pm - in the comfortable surroundings of Rushmere Village Hall, very close to Ipswich. 

 Access to the hall’s car park is from Humber Doucy Lane in Ipswich. Head towards Rushmere from the Rushmere Road roundabout on Colchester Road. A quarter mile or so up the road, at the mini roundabout, turn left in to Humber Doucy Lane. The first building you will see on the right is the Rushmere Community Centre (it has a bus stop right outside it) which is immediately followed by the drive leading to the Village Hall.

 If you’re using sat nav, the hall’s post code is IP4 3PD, which will get you to within 200 yards of the building.

Come and see for yourself - you’re assured of a very warm welcome.
