Digital Photo Management for Libraries

Don't forget to always check the Library-Related Training Opportunities calendar that I maintain (note it's always at the bottom of this blog). I recently updated it and ran across a webinar that sounds great from Infopeople.

Digital Photo Management for Libraries

Have digital photos? Now what? Discover online management services that can make organizing photo collections easier and learn about free web-based photo editing tools that can help you to fix those not-quite-right pics. Get direct comparisons of these tools that can help you decide which are best for your needs or your library.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, attendees will:

* Be able to identify at least three differences between Flickr and Picasa
* Be familiar with the photo management capabilities of and Facebook
* Be able to evaluate at least two online photo editor tools

This webinar will be of interest to staff that would like to work with photos for websites or online photo management tools, and to Reference who may get questions about digital photography and other staff working with local history archives.

Webinar: Wednesday, May 19, 2010
Time: 12pm-1pm PDT (That's 3pm for EST)
Speaker: Laura Solomon
