Friends_and_Family_InviteFrom Alexandra Leask at Henry’s:

I’m emailing to personally invite you to an in store only friends & family event Henry’s is holding this Saturday, April 7th. We don’t have any details on pricing from our vendors yet, but there are supposed to be some pretty incredible one day only sales.

I wanted to make sure you knew about the event, we also want to extend the invitation to attend to the rest of the Kanata Seniors Camera Club as you guys and your members have always been so nice to have us out to talk each year. And it’s always fun talking photography with you.

If you have any questions please contact with Jen or Alexandra at Henry’s Kanata.

RicharD Murphy on Digital Asset Management

RicharD Murphy has provided a copy of the slides from his March 2nd presentation on Digital Asset Management which you can review here.

He also made these recommendations for bulk file renaming programs:

  • Renaming software for PC:
  • Renaming software for Mac:
    • Rename (discontinued – still works great)
    • Mac OS X Yosemite and newer will rename files in bulk via the Finder. Select files to rename, Right Click ( Command Click ) and choose ‘Rename Items’
  • Also, Adobe Bridge will batch rename files on both Mac & PC, and Lightroom can rename files on import.

Thanks again RicharD.
