Our Next Meeting:
Aug 11, 2018
Presentation: Don Snow
Making Side-By-Side Images Of Newspaper Articles
The regular monthly meetings of the Utah Valley Technology and Genealogy Group are held on the second Saturday of each month, except December, from 9 AM to noon. The meetings are free and open to the public. They are held at the Red Brick LDS Chapel, 4050 North 650 East (Timpview Drive), Provo, Utah, usually in the Cultural Hall. If you would like to receive email notification of classes planned for the next meeting, go to our blog page for instructions on how to subscribe. The Group is experimenting with live streaming of the main presentations through Facebook. To watch it online live click on UVTAGG Facebook website link in the box above and view the meeting remotely.
Frequently, the electronic versions of newspaper articles are long and too tall to fit on a computer screen. This presentation will show ways to separate these into pieces which can be placed side-by-side so they are easier work with and read. This can be done with the scans of hard copy articles or with screenshots of online articles. We will discuss programs and ways to find and work with these. The notes for this presentation are on Don’s website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html , including several Freeware Corner articles.
