Other information

Learn how to convert physical photos and photo albums into beautiful photo books fit for the coffee table or as gifts for friends and family.

I will show you how to digitise hard copy photos using a simple photo scan app on your phone. We will then create and arrange digital photos into a book with your personal choice of colours, designs and text to showcase your precious memories.

This will be a hands-on course with students using their own photos and building a photo book in class and between classes so that each student has a fully completed and printed book (at the students’ cost) at the end of course.

I will be demonstrating the apps with which I have experience, but the principles can be applied to the myriad of apps available online. I will provide a list web addresses of the apps I mention and some tips and limitations for their use

REQUIREMENTS:  Mobile phone

Laptop computer or PC at home

TUTOR: Claire has been progressively converting decades of heavy and cumbersome photo albums into more slim-line and attractive versions using apps freely available on the internet.   She has produced books of her travels and also of family events and for gifts. More recently she has started to use a travel journal app to track her journey which can be shared with friends in real time and converted into a book at the end of the trip.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
