Photography Talk on 18-05-2013 (Saturday)

For the month of May, ITIG discussion will be on Basic Digital Photography focusing on Composition.

Whether you own a point-and-shoot or fully automatic SLR digital camera, you need to know “Composition” in Photography. Yes, you can improve the composition by limited editing. But a lot of time on editing will be saved if you remember a few golden rules on Composition. Be creative, there is no one size fits all in photography. Come and share with us what you have experienced…. another event on Active Ageing through lifelong learning.

Composition in photography relates to what is finally decided upon through the camera lens (photographic eyes). It covers arrangement, placement of lines, shapes, colors and dark and light areas within the picture. In some ways, it is similar to the techniques used to produce a piece of Master Art.

Owing to classroom size availability, registration will close at 20.

IT Interest Group Meeting on 20-04-2013 (Saturday)

This month’s ITIG discussion will be on Understanding and Surfing the Internet.

So, what is the Internet? Internet is about “Networking”. You can communicate (in voice or in text), meet new friends through social networking, blogging, tweeting, do online transactions, search for answers/solutions, reading news/books (online) or even doing simple chore of keeping you reminded of your daily appointments and events, wherever you are.

Like electricity, knowing little about “The Internet” is a dangerous thing. If you are not careful, you may have got into trouble with viruses or intrusions from hackers. On the malicious side, sensitive information and/or monies may be involved in fraudulent transactions.

Internet is the future and is the way forward.

I have seen an 86 years old man searching for movies/video using the iPad and our “Z” Generation (3+ years) playing computer games on the iPad. Come to this ITIG discussion and share your experience. Using the Internet is not always doomed and groomed; the advantages definitely outweigh the disadvantages. As the saying goes… nothing venture, nothing gain.

Owing to classroom size availability, registration will close at 20.

What is an ePrint Printer?

Nowadays, there are many options to do a print job. For Apple products, you have the AirPrint. What it does is using any Apple product (e.g. an iPhone, iPad, AirMac, etc) and any Apple compatible printer, you can just send your print job by wireless Wi-Fi to the printer – no printer cable is required.

Likewise, for any ePrinter, with proper configuration, you can also send your print job by wireless Wi-Fi to the ePrinter – no printer cable is required.

But for ePrinter, it can also be configured to send a print job, anywhere around the world, and get it printed with an ePrinter located elsewhere. This means, if you can email it, you can print it. To perform this last request, you need to obtain an email address for the ePrinter from the supplier of the ePrinter.

So the installation procedure after you bring the ePrinter home is as follows:

1) Connect the ePrinter with printer cable to a computer with CD-Rom drive.
2) Install the printer drivers to the computer.
3) Configure the ePrinter with the Wi-Fi setup in the house (ensure the ePrinter is properly connected to the wireless network of the house).
4) Remove the printer cable and do a wireless test print from computer to the ePrinter.
5) Once the above (4) is successful, go to the supplier’s web site and obtain an email address for the ePrinter.
6) Once the ePrinter email address is accepted by the supplier of the ePrinter, do a test printer by typing an email and send it to the ePrinter email address.

Note: It is recommended that the ePrinter to be of the Laser type.
