Notes from the Beyond Basics Thursday Class
Editing and Storing Photos
In the month of February our guest speaker, Frank Tona from Crown Camera
http://crowncamerashop.com gave his presentation on handling photos. And some of his insight into the future of camera’s and photography. His message was for us to backup or memories/photos in several different devices. And ensure you don’t store them in the same location. As an example; if you house caught fire, are you photos in the Cloud, another building, in bank safe? Today you can utilize the Cloud in many different forms. To mention just a few, starting with Crown Camera who offer free cloud storage, Drop – Box,
Google Drive, iCloud storage , Flickr,
Photo-Bucket, and so forth. The devices can be a USB ( the latest ones are even
as large as 64GB ) , external hard
drive, and even DVD discs.
Frank made a recommendation to us to follow Moose Peterson , wild life photographer for tips and camera information.
Google+ Profile and advantages of Plus
We studied Google+. It is a similar social media tool like Facebook, but with some twists. For example , a Google + Community is a great tool to start conversations around specific projects, interests, or particular groups. For example, you might start a Community for your expanded work group, a class project, a charity drive within your organization, or a joint initiative between your company and outside contributor.
A Community can be managed by more than one person. For example, a co-worker can also manage the Community with you. Or you can redirect the responsibility to another user.

Link to Help on Collections for Google Plus
What are ‘Collections’? Collections are, well, collections of posts on any subject you choose.They are like virtual, interactive magazines.
These can be your passions, niches, or focus of content you publish on Google+
Collections will help you have conversations about your favorite things, with the right people.
For some people, they will enter Collections to find content on your passions, brought together in one place. For others they will find niche content collected by people they follow.
Collections make it simpler to share the content you love, with the people who’ll love it.
A Collection can be a mix of documents, photos, links even videos. Any Profile or Page on Google+ can create a Collection.
Simply click on the collections icon on the side bar, or on the selections tab on your profile. Then click the + sign:
You control the privacy of your collection. It can be just to your circle of friends Public, just the same as you would in Facebook. People can leave comments and create a dialogue similar to a blog. You can share collections with Communities as well as groups of people. Your Collection can be included in your Community.
