Tech Tips by Joe Dietz & Brooke Thomas

Using Corel PaintShop Pro Makeover Tool

How to remove blackheads, moles, wrinkles, get a tan without laying in the sun, whiten your teeth and even lose a few pounds - at least on your pictures.

Unless we find the Fountain of Youth, we all are going to go through some physical changes in our life. There are a lot of expensive, painful and time consuming measures to address these issues. Or instead of doing that, why not just dress up our pictures. With Corel's PaintShop Pro you can!

1. First is the blemish remover tool. With this tool, adjust the settings and then click over the blackhead, pimple or other imperfection. With a click it is gone.

2. Next is the teeth whitener. Adjust the settings and click a few places on the stained teeth. The teeth are now white.

3. Next let's get rid of a few wrinkles with the scratch remover. Adjust the setting and then drag over the wrinkle and voila - it is gone. Repeat as needed.

4. One easy way to shed a few pounds on your picture is by using the Thinify tool. Select your person picture, adjust the settings and with a click or two the pounds disappear.

With these and other tools in Corel's Paint Shop Pro you can really dress up your pictures of you and your friends.

In late January, CKCS will be holding a 6-week beginner class for those who want to know how to fix up your pictures. We will talk about the basic tools and how to use them.

Check our web site - www.ckcs.org - in January to find the date and times of this and other classes.

Changes to Kroger Community Rewards Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

If you are not participating in Community Rewards, you can sign up to have Kroger donate a portion of every purchase you make to CKCS.

Please call the Kroger Digital Customer Service line at 1-866-221-4141 and request that your name and CKCS (NPO number 11119) are added to the Kroger Community Rewards Program.

You can also do this online with your computer or smart phone at www.kroger.com. Don't forget that the CKCS NPO number is 11119.

You can do this anytime during the year, but right now is best for CKCS.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. Shortly after you enroll, you will see a message on your Kroger purchase receipts, indicating that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS for you. The size of the gift is proportional to the amount of your purchase.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!


Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
