November 2016 Training

Oct. 31-November 5 IrfanView Many people have asked that we have access to FastStone Capture on the library desk top. That is not going to happen, because of licensing issues! However, there are other options--The Microsoft Snipping tool which is a tool to do what the name implies and IrfanView a very powerful free program that Wikipedia describes as: “IrfanView (/ˈɪərfænvjuː/) is an image viewer, editor, organizer and converter program for Microsoft Windows. It can also play video and audio files, and has some image creation and painting capabilities. IrfanView is free for non-commercial use; commercial use requires paid registration. It is noted for its small size, speed, ease of use, and ability to handle a wide variety of graphic file formats.” We will only have time to show a few of the many features!" There are also lots of other free screen capture tools that are not as robust as IrfanView, work well for personal use. One of my favorites is a Google extension called Awesome Screenshot. (2 million users) Here is a link to a short video (less than 2minutes) tutorial! It also works with FireFox and Safari!

This is one of the classes taught here at the Library by Brother and Sister Capener. Staff members may be interested in learning how to make books for Christmas. Because space is limited in the Bindery the number of available spaces is limited.
