Top of the bill was a talk by John Hooper on Time Machine.

Time Machine was introduced with Leopard in 2007, and underwent a major change in 2012. One consequence of that change is that doing a full system restore from a pre-2012 backup poses problems (If you really need to do it, ask John - he has a way!). Restoration of individual files and folders still works normally though.

Having… Read more…

As promised, Derek took us through editing photos, firstly on the iPad. This was new to lots of those in attendance so it was a well paced walk-through which people could follow on their own machines with one of their own photos. Everyone was surprised at both the capability and ease of use of the Photos app. It's easy when you know how!

Derek then went on to look at the extra… Read more…

Stephen gave us his take on iTunes commenting that, like much of Apple software, it keeps changing, “being improved”, he referred to the Blue icon and the newer Red icon versions. which differ in some ways. With a collection of well over 1000 albums and many various versions of the same work or track, Stephen showed how to overcome iTunes' default methods of sorting using the “Get Info" function… Read more…

Last evening there was a low turnout - was it the good weather that had kept people away we wonder? Euan came over from Dorchester and gave a comprehensive and well-pitched presentation on trouble-shooting for the Mac. He avoided specifics but gave good advice on how to approach problems (don’t try when you are tired or stressed) and of ways of finding out what might be causing the trouble (Activity Monitor isn… Read more…

There was a very good attendance of 20, which included another six newcomers.

Andy gave us a very interesting talk about a Database Application - MySQL, which he had learnt from a course attended last year.
The software is free since it is Open Source, and is fully functional and very comprehensive.
He explained how to set it up and entered some details, then showed us how you can quickly display some… Read more…

The main feature of this evening's meeting was a talk on Making Photos by Peter Shepheard. He began by putting up three photographs of the same subject and polling the audience on which one they preferred. Evaluation of the results was promised later. . . .

We were also surveyed briefly on what we actually did with our photos. Rather shamefully, 'nothing' came out clearly on top in this one, so Peter went on to talk… Read more…

Garageband has come on a long way since Mick demonstrated the Mac version of the program in January 2012 and John Lemon followed that up two months later with its first incarnation on IOS. So for this meeting John Lemon brought us up to date on both versions with a fascinating presentation and demonstration first on the Mac and then on IOS using an iPad. He showed the huge range of virtual instruments to pick… Read more…

Fifteen people were at Beaminster to hear Mick explain very clearly the functions and differences between iCloud and iCloud Drive – the first actively synchronises items in Apple applications such as Contacts and iCal and Mail between all your Apple devices, while the latter acts as storage for any file that you wish to store off of your Apple kit. There were quite a few questions about these which Mick was able to clear up… Read more…
