Post Preparation 5th March

Unfortunately, the speaker planned for our 5th March meeting is unable to attend. The fall-back position is that we will run a “members evening” instead.

The full details are still being prepared, but generally the evening will enable members that have any queries about say “colour profiles”, on-line printing, on-line pre-cut mount boards as well as DIY mount cutting, resizing images, PhotoEntry etc to have clear, simple demonstration of “how to do it”.

If you have a particular query which you would like to have addressed, please send an email ASAP to Bruce Deacon at brucedeacon88@gmail.com and we will do our best to include it in the evening.
