A
cronis True Image 2015 products offer dual protection to any computer (and all of its data) with the most secure, complete, and easy-to-use
backup solution.

On March 5th, 2015, Gene Barlow will speak
about the latest Acronis product via Skype from
Utah to let us know the ins and outs of various
data backup approaches and help us ensure the
safety and preservation of our personal data.

Backing up a computer’s hard drive on a
regular basis is the best way to protect the hard
drive from system crashes and failures. 
Unfortunately, although there are many ways to do backups, most of them do not adequately protect the computer. Gene’s talk will help us to
understand the best way to backup the computer
system.

James Iscaro, a longtime active member,
regular attendee, and club director, will speak
about Adobe’s Lightroom, a program used for
editing and organizing photographs. Over the
last few years, Jim has used Lightroom to edit and organize more than 1,000 photographs and will share his considerable experience.

Lightroom was released in 2007 and brings a
somewhat different set of offerings for the
photographer than Photoshop. The product
supports non-destructive editing of images en
masse and is geared more toward retouching.
A popular feature is the ability to synchronize
edits from one particular photo to the whole selection. Of the 1,000-plus professional
photographers interviewed recently,about 40 percent use Lightroom. Lightroom combines a very good way to view and manage all of your photos with great editing functionality in one application.
