He first went through adding photos using Apple and non-Apple connection kits which will either connect to the camera or with an SD card.

Euan gave a very interesting talk on adjusting the quality of photos which one might otherwise simply discard. He arranged semicircular seating around the screen so we could more closely see  the adjustments as they were made. Starting with iPhoto Euan showed the effects of adjusting levels which had the most immediate effect and then showed the effects of playing with Exposure, Contrast, Saturation and the other adjustments offered by iPhoto.

David opened this special Q&A meeting, which attracted 21 members who were fully geared up to transmit and/or receive a plethora of (mostly) Mac related information.

Your scribe attempted vainly to record the minutiae thereof, but was overcome by the copious flow of questions, data, hypotheses, speculations, and general advice and miscellaneous chit-chat.

The scope covered was wide, and included the mysteries… Read more…
