    All pictures taken at the September 2016 Tablet Course

    PowerPoint (also Open Office Presenter) - The ideal software to use if you want to make a presentation to an audience. It can also be used to collate photographs and video material to show to friends and family, allowing you to add your own commentary.

    Photo Story 3 - Photographs, music and voice over, to video.

    Windows Movie Maker - Takes you beyond the basics of Photo Story 3 and allows you to incorporate video clips and manipulate the sound and video lengths etc.

    Vegas and Pinnacle - Propriety products which have to be purchased. Which one to purchase is a matter of choice, cost and level of experience? We would recommend everyone to at least use one of the Microsoft products before choosing one of these. These products do however, allow users to add another level of sophistication to their finished video/film.

    The maximum number of members on these courses is 10.
