March 9, 2013 * Seminar Notes
Keystone Computer Concepts

We Speak English, Not Geek!

If you attended our seminar on Saturday, March 9, 2013, we just want to say "Thanks!"  (If you weren't able to attend, everything is included below.)   We worked with videos, watching them, creating them and uploading them. There was a ton of information at this seminar and we've tried to include everything we can here on this page.


Something new: we have audio files of the entire seminar. We know that's not quite as good as having a video but we are headed in that direction. In the meantime, you can actually listen to the entire seminar, if you'd like to jog your memory or if you weren't there. The audio is divided into five parts so you can pick and choose what you want to hear.


Our Seminar's topic was "If You're Lucky Enough To Be Irish."  Here is the PowerPoint (in PDF format):

Video Programs


During the seminar, I used a great video program called PowerDirector and I mentioned that if you were interested in purchasing the program, I'd share a link so that you could receive a discount. (You can save 20% if you shop now before the deal is gone.) Here it is (just click this link):

Celebrate 4-time Winner of PC Magazine Editor's Choice--Save 20% on PowerDirector 11


I also mentioned Windows Live Movie Maker and Windows Live Photo Gallery. Both of these programs are part of the Live Essentials suite and you can download these free programs HERE.


If you're a Mac user, Apple has a great program similar to PowerDirector although it is three times more expensive. You can download a trial and/or purchase it HERE.




Here are the audio recordings from the seminar:


Introduction - Beginning through the end of the cartoons from the Internet.


Section 1 - Basically, this is all the audio during the PowerPoint presentation.


Section 2 - This is the audio from the end of my use of the PowerPoint up to our break at 11:00 a.m. This is where I showed several videos (see below) and I talked about editing software.


Section 3 - Starting after the break, this audio covers transferring video from my camera.


Section 4 - In this final section of audio, we created our own video using the pictures that came with PowerDirector and adding some music from my computer.





Here are the videos we watched during the seminar and the video we created in the second half.






That's about it.


Our next seminar will be Saturday, April 27, 2013.
