PRINCETON — Princeton Public Library will hold a special iPhone and iPad Photography class at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14. Jean Lawton will be introducing participants to a free photo app called “BeFunky Photo Editor.” The app can be downloaded to your device before class starts by finding it in the App Store on your device.
BeFunky offers loads of fun editing effects, including ones to turn your photos into cartoons, oil paintings or pop art. It includes hundreds of graphic images and fonts to include in custom layouts.
The program will also teach basic functions such as taking photos, editing them, and attaching them to email and text messages. If time allows the group the group will also explore Instagram.
At 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, Peter Wentworth-Sheilds will share recollections of his years working as an art director in the movies. Using examples from movies he has worked on, such as “Star Wars,” “Clockwork Orange,” “Captain Nemo” and “The Little Prince,” he will explain to participants what it was like to work in motion picture art departments 40 to 50 years ago. Computers back then were as big as houses and artists made use of blueprints and scale models, as well as back projection and stop motion to create special effects.
The library is at 698 E. Peru St.
