Get the most out of your digital camera with PCC online class
Photos and Story by James Hill
PORTLAND, Ore. – Do you love your digital camera, but can’t seem to get the photos to display or print correctly? Then an online, non-credit course offered by Portland Community College may be the focus you need. Digital Photography: OUTPUT! will show you how to master the art of digital image file management so you get the most from your digital camera. Instructor Curt Simmons will show you how to edit and crop out unwanted portions of your photos, resize them, adjust their colors, add special effects, print at the highest possible quality, email digital photos to friends and family, and use them to create cards or electronic photo albums. Students will need a digital camera, a computer, and any type of photo editing software. "As an old film photographer, but new digital camera owner, this course was just right for me at the right time," said a recent student. "This was my first on-line course and I found the format quite useful." Held entirely online via the Internet, the six-week class offers the flexibility to open lessons whenever your schedule allows and features discussion board with the instructor and other students. The class will be offered twice as follows: April 20 through May 27, and May 18 through June 24. Cost is $79. For more information, contact PCC Community Education at 503-731-6619.
