You should feel comfortable acquiring digital images, either with a digital camera, using images scanned onto CDs, or scanning film prints. We'll briefly review basic computer skills, such as using a mouse, creating and accessing folders, and downloading and saving files, but you should already be familiar with these skills. Note: This course is written for the Windows user, but Macintosh users will find the software is quite similar and are welcome in this course. However, no support can be provided for Macintosh-specific issues.
