Hello and Welcome,
We have two meeting next week. Alex Zaharov-Reutt will make one of his excellent presentations at the Main meeting on Tuesday and John Lucke will continue to explore the features of GIMP at the Digital Photographic SIG on Friday. 
You will find Alex's message below. 
Tuesday 24 April - MAIN Meeting -  5:30pm - 8:30pm
April's Main Meeting will see us taking a closer look at Windows 8 - and its nemesis, the new iPad, with our presenter set to be me!
Windows 8 has stirred some major controversy by ditching the Start Menu - yet it is still there, just in a totally new form - and yes, there's much more to Windows 8.
Then there's the new iPad - alongside some exceptional new apps that you simply must see for yourself when it is hooked up wirelessly to the projector using the sweet little Apple TV.
So, come down on Tuesday, learn about the latest Windows 8 and new iPad news, and have fun!!
See you there,
Friday 27 April - Digital Photography -  9:30am - 12:30pm
At this meeting, the group will review a selection "landscape" photographs taken recently by members.
It is hoped that this exercise will encourage members to enter as a group in this year's ASCCA photographic competition in October. This competition has six different categories to choose from and some tips for producing award winning photographs will be discussed at the meeting.
After a coffee break, John Lucke will continue to explore the features of GIMP with the main focus being on the colour correction tools in the program. With a little practice, these simple tools are capable of turning poorly exposed images into vibrant photographs.
There will also be time for a question and answer session at the meeting.
John Mathews
