You can capture wonderful photos and videos with the camera on your phone, but then what? How do you work with them, keep them organized, find what you need and share them?

We cover: How do I transfer photos from my phone to my computer? How do I organize them so I can find what I want? Should I store them in the cloud? Is it safe? How do I do that? How do you send a photo as an email attachment?

In session 1 we will learn how to move photos from your phone to your computer, or to cloud storage, or both. We will set you up with free cloud storage if you don’t already have it, and teach you how to use it.

In session 2 will learn to organize your photos by date and time, and how to attach them to an email.

Optional topics, time permitting: Why do some phones automatically upload your photos to the cloud? How can I control that? How do I use geolocation (GPS) information so I can find out where a photo was taken?

Both iPhones and Android phones will be covered.
