Just finished on line spreadsheet class with instructor Obie Weeks, very informative but now I see you offer class on Cloud, when is that offered?
Also class on arranging photos, but only on Android…I have APPLE Mac…any
advise on organizing photos on iPad. Also I am signed up for organizing desktop, etc. but Obie tells me not available for me because I have a MAC.
So glad you enjoyed the class on spreadsheets. You are already in touch with Obie, so I would check with him to see if you can join a Fix-It-Friday session and get help with photos on a Mac. If so you would register on our website for a Fix-It-Friday date that works for you. They are available every Friday.
