  • DIY Workshop
    The August First Thursday meeting featured a DIY workshop on digitizing film negatives by Paul Briggs.  The presentation may be found in the Member's Tips section of the web site.  Paul updated his presentation to include links to the "Instructables" videos he mentioned.  Paul has also offered to present on slide conversions to the club at a later date.  Additionally, Paul will be presenting the same instructional material on 8/20 at the Beaumont Library from 6:30 to 6:60 pm where attendees will take images of film negatives using their digital cameras and then convert the images on their laptops.  Thanks, Paul!
