March's main presentation was given by WAMUG chairman Mick Burrell with an attendance of 15 keen attendees.

Mick started by looking back to the discussion on iCloud. iCloud can back-up and synchronise iOS devices (iPhones and iPads) but it syncs all music and all photos etc. Mick questioned whether this was what users really wanted, especially those having devices with smaller memory sizes. He then explained that iTunes running on a Mac… Read more…

Mick demonstrated in real time how to create a ringtone for iPhone — a good reminder of how useful the Garageband App can be. Using an MP3 clip of the opening bars of Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take Five’, he opened a new “Empty” Project in the latest version of Garageband 10.1, (any of the three options offered work) and dragged his MP3 clipping into Garageband. ‘Take Five&rsquo… Read more…

16 members attended to hear John Ansell's talk entitled "Whether to iCloud?"
John suggested that the easiest way to think of iCloud is that it adds some more internet-based services to those we are already familiar with, such as the world wide web and email.

All these services store information somewhere in the Internet, then the service is provided by an application running on computers typically located in data… Read more…

Euan explained that masking is laying a partially translucent or opaque layer over an image to affect the appearance of the image without affecting the original.  The mask can affect only a selected part, parts, or the whole of the image, the level of transparency of the mask varying the intensity of the effect. The default red colour of a mask is based on “Rubylith” a red transparent film used in traditional… Read more…

As chairman of the Beaminster Camera Club Roy knew of what he spake and gave us a good set of examples to show the power… Read more…
