Essential Image Control

An Image Makers Workshop

9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Saturday, December 6, 2014

Hawaii Self Storage – 2909 Waialae Avenue

The December Image Makers Workshop will focus on images for delivery on web pages as well as via email. Topics will include:

  • What files types are best for photographs, art, logos and graphic elements.
  • How to make images load quickly when viewed on Internet web pages, social media and other services.
  • How to send images by email.
  • Best practices, tools and tips for effective delivery.

This workshop is for you if you post images to web pages, on social media and send email with image attachments.

Effective communication over the Internet requires that images are delivered by the quickest and most convenient method. People today use devices of many different sizes and capabilities, from traditional desktop computers, laptops, tablets to smart phones. It is important to be able to send images to all these devices effectively.

This workshop will be limited to no more than 10 people… mostly because that’s the physical limit of the conference room at the Hawaii Self Storage.

The morning portion of the workshop will be highly focused and you will be provided course material. So it is important that you register if you wish to attend because we will only print enough material to cover the registrations.

In the afternoon, we will accommodate general tech support questions which need not be related to the morning topics.

apple combo

The Hawaii Macintosh & Apple Users’ Society is one of the oldest user groups in the nation and is celebrating its 35th Anniversary with a look back to the beginning of Apple computers and a look forward to the future.

christopher breenJoin us for a buffet lunch and presentations by two of the best known and respected Apple experts.   Christopher Breen, is a Senior Editor and writer of 2Joe-KissellMacWorld/PC World and author of many books, and does training videos for lynda.com.  He’s also a professional musician in the Bay area.

Joe Kissell is author of over 60 print and e-books, numerous articles and podcasts.  He is also a MacWorld contributing author.  They both have a knack for making hard things easy. Chris and Joe come to us virtually but are such excellent presenters, in the Dave & Busters showroom they will be bigger than life and just as entertaining as if they were standing in the room.

We’ll also take a brief journey back through HMAUS’ beginnings and open machine cases, Bulletin Board Services,  5 1/4″ floppies and the start of desktop publishing.  For fun we’ll take a count of the number of Macs and Apple devices folks in the room have owned.  Winner of the total gets a prize, a small one, but a prize!  And yes, more door prizes – a $70 Ollo Clip lens set for an iPhone 5 (sorry no 6) and great Peachpit how-to books.
E komo mai! Come join us!
