TIPS & TRICKS:
Are you frustrated with how your photos look on Facebook? Make them shine with this simple sizing setup: 2048 pixels (long edge), 72 ppi, sRGB color space. That way, FB won't have to convert anything again and your photos will look their best.
Also on the Tips & Tricks page:
Diopters ~ metering ~ back button focusing ~ histograms ~ lens filters.
RAW or JPEG?
Which is right for you? Maybe both... Check out the page Raw vs Jpeg in tutorials.

The club also has an affiliation with Boise Photo Walk, an online group that meets often for live photo opportunities in the Treasure Valley area and beyond. It's a great way to practice what you're learning through the club while meeting other local photographers. Join here: http://www.meetup.com/Boise-Photo-Walk/

There will be a new/refresher workshop on how to use your camera Sept. 5 --- 10 AM to 1 PM at the Eagle Library (the large meeting room on the left as you go in the front door) If you are sometimes confused by all the buttons, settings and menus then this is the class for you. It is a hands on workshop for Cannon and Nikon camera users. It includes how to use the camera settings, menus, buttons etc. There will also be information on exposure, shutter speed and focus. And some intermediate subjects as well. Please email Jeff: email@example.com ASAP so he can get an idea of how many will be attending. The class is free to all members.
