We're now settling in at our new venue and with the wi-fi working perfectly, everyone was happy. We started with a few questions but not many of us are experiencing problems that need sorting at present so of necessity, it was quite short.

John then took us through the workings of Time Machine and a general discussion followed on different ways of using it and what it would and would not do… Read more…

between POP and IMAP email accounts which seemed to clear up some mysteries for quite a few of those in attendance.

Next up was Derek with a review and demo of the Preview application, an often overlooked program with many features and capabilities. During the demo members identified that Apple had updated Preview in the latest… Read more…

Our first meeting at the new venue. Everyone seemed to think it's a good venue but there was a problem with the wi-fi which we hope to sort out before the next meeting.

We ran through the differences between POP and IMAP email accounts which seemed to clear up some mysteries for quite a few of those in attendance. The Q&A session was also quite lively but that could have… Read more…

We had twelve people in total at the first meeting of the year. After introductions and issues arising Derek ran through a few features in Photoshop to reuse or use photos that initially did not work.

The first picture was of a tourist sign board that was photographed at about 60 degrees from the perpendicular, this image was converted into a square image and then the image enhanced with a bit of "… Read more…

The January meeting was attended by 23 members and guests. John introduced the meeting, and distributed forms on which we were invited to record what would like, and what we could offer to future meetings. This month, we heard about the mysteries of POP and IMAP email from Mick, and also about some useful apps from Michael, and John.

First, Mick on email: (A brief paraphrase, notes are available from him.)

John introduced the meeting with 25 members present, all tempted by the presentations on offer (plus, no doubt, by the Christmas coffee and mince pies).

Euan commenced by telling us of his positive experience with his Mac Goody "Shop"
CK IT Computers Poole - Mac repairs and sales [undisclosed telephone].
It's not really a shop, so you have to contact them before making a visit.

Tom demonstrated the… Read more…

Attendance was again good (15) in spite of the low temperature outside. The usual Q & A opening brought discussion on Mail threads, opening the BBC website, removing outdated email addresses, using autofill in Safari for email addresses, upgrading to Mountain Lion and using the Trackpad.

Alan opened his talk about iMovie '11, starting by showing a newish feature called Trailers in which you choose bits of your video clips for Apple to… Read more…
