ICPL announces October Classes for Adults

by Meredith Hines-Dochterman on October 1st, 2014

The Iowa City Public Library wants to encourage creativity in the month of October. The computer classes offered in October will introduce patrons to free software and free online tools which can make creating a personalized card or editing a video easy and fun. Each class will last two hours, giving patrons time to ask questions and create on their own.

The Library will start things off with Beginning Graphic Design at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 4. Learn how to use GIMP, a free, graphic design and photo editing software, to make invitations, cards, or other graphics.

Want to enhance or correct your digital photos? Join us from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, October 13, for Digital Photo Editing. Find out how to make basic corrections like red-eye removal, cropping, and sharpening blurred images.

Digital Photos: Organizing, Sharing, and Basic Editing will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, October 24. Getting all of your digital photography organized and in print worthy condition can be pretty daunting. Bring in your digital photos and learn how to batch process and tag items to quickly and easily edit and organize your images.create_interface_image

Our digital devices make it easy to capture the great moments of our lives, but making keepsakes you can share with others out of these videos can be tricky. Bring in your digital video and learn to upload and use YouTube to safely edit and share your videos online. Join us from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 28 for Editing Digital Video.

All classes for adults are held in the Library’s Computer Lab on the second floor. Classes are free, but space is limited to 10 people per program, so patrons should register early. Visit www.icpl.org/classes to register online. You can also register by calling the Library at (319) 356-5200.
