11 members and 2 guests.

Our first meeting of 2016 was very and interesting with my plan to try to get everyone involved a success but I did not take into account that they would all want to chip in at once, the result was quite a lively affair.

We had a look at some favourite Apps for iPad and MacBook, including, iPianist, Sky Guide and… Read more…

22 people, including 3 new prospective members and a welcome delegation from Dorchester, squeezed into Solutions to hear Tony give a second presentation of his talk on Photos. To avoid duplication, this report should be read as an adjunct to the report below of the Fareham meeting of 9th January.

The views or display options in the iOS and OSX versions of Photos are quite similar but Tony highlighted and explained a few… Read more…

In answer to a question we concluded that the best way to put together a book of photos with a small amount of text is to use an online printing service such as Apple books Photobox or similar.   

Keeping both iPhotos and Photos running at the same time was causing some confusion to David and others. The conclusion was that most could operate happily on just Photos but make a back… Read more…

There was a good turnout by 15 members and one guest at this first meeting of 2016.

Tony Still gave a very interesting and detailed presentation about Apple's "Photos" app, the replacement for iPhoto. As a Lightroom user, he was new to "Photos" and urged people to look at it again if they were put off when it was first released with Yosemite, it has improved since then. The… Read more…

Another good meeting with 17 people present. Very pleased to especially welcome Group Treasurer and Dorchester organised David Moon, also from Dorchester Euan Williams.
Mick gave a presentation to show us some simple if not obvious things that one can do in Safari. Very useful, and even some of the more experienced members were finding new ideas. AS always, after the presentation the meeting dissolved into a series of little groups discussing many different… Read more…

Tony kicked off another well attended meeting by again introducing Ollie of Solutions for a presentation and demonstration of iPad Pro.

The main feature is of course the screen, measuring 12.9in and, with the same aspect ratio as earlier iPads, it has 78% more area than the iPad Air, making it the highest resolution screen Apple make. The iPad Pro has four speakers so delivers better sound quality too. As well as… Read more…

David Parnell gave a fascinating talk and demonstration on how he edits photographs using Adobe Lightroom and whilst it showed Lightroom to be an excellent product, it was as much the techniques he used, also available using other software, that he wished to get across. To be totally authentic he started by taking a photo David M with a Father Christmas hat and then adjusted the appearance both overall and using filters and masks applied… Read more…

There was a really good attendance (the second best since we started) and 23 people heard the two presentations – one from Wayne Bennet, who showed us the best way to make a Keynote presentation. He gave good advice on first assembling all your raw material for the presentation in one place – i.e. graphics and photos as well as text. Next he set up the approximate number of slides he might require to… Read more…

David Moon organiser of Dorchester meetings came to us and gave very comprehensive description of Apple Watch functions and how it interacts with the iPhone.

His presentation showed that is can of course give the time day month and year, playing music that is stored on the iPhone via Bluetooth playing through an external speaker.

It is able to display e-mails together with loads of… Read more…

Such is the lure of the Apple Watch that a positive crowd of 14 braved storm Barney to hear Oli of Solutions tell us all about it.

After an introductory video, Oli ran through the main features, highlighting how Notifications makes it easy to read and respond to messages etc. either by selecting from pre-defined responses or by dictation. The watch also uses Siri who can be addressed by pressing the Digital… Read more…
