October 2nd - Editing Photos Without Photoshop and Digital Resilience - Part 1

Photoshop is so iconic that it has become a popular verb, yet there are alternative photo editors that are very powerful and even free. We will demonstrate GIMP, or GNU Image Manipulation Program, a cross-platform image editor that does much of what Photoshop does, except charge you money.

Since October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, it is a great time to consider how each of us can be more resilient in the face of ever-increasing digital threats.  In this first of a series presentation, we will discuss cyber threats like social engineering and what you can do now to protect yourself.

November 6th - TBD
