Other programs are also available for members, including software for high dynamic range photography. Members also have access to four slide scanners, which streamline the task of converting slides or negatives to images. The images can then be enhanced and saved in a variety of formats.

The Sun City Center Photo Club meets the second Tuesday of every month in the Caper Room, located in the Atrium Building on the main campus. At 6:30 p.m., a short educational program or tutorial is presented on an aspect of photography. These sessions include valuable lessons for anyone wishing to take better pictures or to learn how to enhance their photographs. At 7:00 p.m., a short general meeting is held. Several times a year, the program is devoted to a club-wide competition with an experienced judge who evaluates and comments on each photo. This provides a learning experience for all who are in attendance. At our other meetings, an instructive speaker presents topics of interest to our members. Our speakers include many from the wider photographic community of west Florida. After the speaker, camera help is available for those who have questions about their camera or accessories and there is also an opportunity for club members to have photos critiqued by an experienced member of our group.

These classes include basic photo-graphic skills, classes on photo enhancement programs such as Elements, programs on developing media shows, classes on working with your computer and advanced topics such as processing RAW files.
