Class Notes 6-1-2017

Turn your cell phone into a professional camera using this app on it. Instead of just pointing and shooting, you can adjust all the settings like your phone camera was one of those expensive SLR ones.

Edit your pictures right on your cell phone. Snapseed is a complete and professional photo editor developed by Google. Better than the one that comes with your phone, it even lets you wipe out portions of the image and automatically fills in the space to be like adjacent area. Very easy to use.

Another App for the Fire Stick instead of Kodi. As we know, Kodi allows you to see everything on your TV using the Amazon Firestick.

Set the starting tabs to those they like and they are all set to use their computer without being concerned with the start button, double clicking on the desktop icons, etc.

Home - New Tab Page
A homepage you will fall in love with! Notifications, badges, recently closed tabs, quick notes and more. Also great for the not too tech savy. Actually I am using it, too.
