Some groups have workshops, but BoomerTECH Adventures has FUNSHOPS!

After all, we have spent a lifetime working; it is time for kicking back and to have some fun.  Our Funshops focus on one aspect of our digital devices for a specific end result. Without fail, we learn new details about our digital camera, laptops, smartphones, and/or tablets in the process.

Our three latest Funshops include:

• Designing Fabulous Gifts With Digital Images Using Your Laptop or Desktop Computer
• Designing Fabulous Gifts With Digital Images Using Your Smartphone and/or Tablet
• Organizing (Finally) Family and/or Travel Images for Fun and Profit

Descriptions:

Designing Fabulous Gifts With Digital Images Using Your Laptop or Desktop Computer: Traditional photo and souvenir albums are a bit passé. However, there are a myriad of opportunities for creating unique and personalized gifts using online tools to design everything from family calendars to trivets to scrapbooks and so much more. Perhaps you have seen examples of such items and thought to yourself, “I would like to do that, but I don’t have a clue how to go about it!” Or, you know what to do but never get around to it!  This Funshop is for you—dedicated time to work on a project with personalized instruction and support at your beck and call. At the end of the day, you will have a gift or two ready to go into production for holiday giving.  This session is just for people using laptops and desktops—you must provide your own device.

Mousepad, Calendar, Ornament for Grammie, Notecards—All of these items and more can be made from your own images!

Designing Fabulous Gifts With Digital Images Using Your Smartphone and/or Tablet:  We are offering a Funshop identical to the one described above just for mobile devices because many of the online tools are available as apps.  The apps tend to be just a little bit different from the online version of the tools so it makes sense to group folks together by device.  You might be thinking, “I have an iPad and my friend has a Dell laptop, and we want to take the workshop together!!!”  Contact us, and we’ll work something out. Bring your own device!

Organizing and Editing (Finally) Family and/or Travel Images for Fun and Profit: How many pictures do you have of your first grandchild, the family reunion, or your trip to the national parks of the Southwest? 300, 550, 765, or over 1000?

It is so easy to quickly overwhelm ourselves with images! In this Funshop, we will explore both device-based and online tools for editing and organizing our images into formats that are easier to browse and share.  Perhaps you would like to create albums, or slideshows, or even a book to sell. We’ll show you how and provide support as you work through the process.  Bring your own device loaded with your images.

Get a jump on the holidays—Design your gifts in our Funshops, and they will be ready in plenty of time to mail or hand-deliver!
