Learn about Scanners and Scanning

The Dallas Genealogical Society Technology Special Interest Group will be meeting again this week:

  • When: Thursday evening from 6:30 pm to 8:00
  • Where: Studio room on the 3rd floor of theDallas Public Library

This week’s discussion will focus on Scanners and scanning technology. By the end of my presentation you will (hopefully!)

  • Understand how a scanner works
  • Be knowledgeable of key terms and concepts
  • Know the different scanning techniques available on most scanners
  • Understand that not all images contain the same level of detail
  • Understand the limitations of printers and monitors
  • Know which formats to use to save your files

I hope to see you there, but if you can’t join us this month please consider participating in an upcoming meeting:

  • October 6  – Digital Photography: Repair and Retouch by Sandra Crowley
  • November 3 – Tying it all together. This will be an open discussion on any of the topics we have covered in previous SIG presentations
  • December 1 – Show Your Project night. Make a brief presentation to the group about a project you have worked on that was inspired by something you learned at a Technology SIG meeting. Tell us what you have done with your Blog, Wiki, Web Site, Photography project, Scanning Project or whatever. The best/most entertaining presentation of the night will win a $25 gift certificate to Fry’s Electronics!
