John opened the meeting and welcomed the 16 members present.

Michael presented 'Some elements of Pages'.
Pages is easy to use for basic functions, but is capable of more advanced jobs too.
He demonstrated inserting graphics into text, and showed how one can move the graphic around, and the text wraps automatically, as set by the Inspector. The Inspector can also be used to adjust the size and shape of… Read more…

A good attendance and a lively meeting!

There were a few questions for the Q&A section, most of which were dealt with but as usual, there were a couple requiring investigation which was not possible as the offending Mac was not portable so still at home. However, we made some suggestions and await feedback.

Next, Michael ran through a short demo of Dragon Dictate. The accuracy was pretty good especially… Read more…

The meeting at Solutions was quite well attended - a dozen people came to hear the three presentations.

The first was from Mick Burrell. In his usual clear and easily understandable stye Mick explained different routes to creating a web site and then of putting it onto the internet. As for creating, for a basic, simple site, iWeb is perfectly adequate. For a more ambitious production programs such as Freeway and RapidWeaver allow a… Read more…

Only five people at the meeting this month.
Andy Banks introduced us to Swift Publisher - a DTP package that he uses to produce a monthly newsletter/magazine on one of his other interests.

He selected Swift Publisher as it gave good page layout control and was priced very reasonably.
Some notable attributes of the product are very competent text flow across columns and pages and around images.
Te product included… Read more…

We started off with the usual question and answer session and most of this centred around early experiences of iCloud but then Brian gave us an excellent presentation on iMovie. He showed us how to take a series of still photos but moving the subject slightly in each one and then stringing them together to make a short animated movie. Obviously the photography stage could be a bit time consuming and the smaller the subject… Read more…

The meeting space at Solutions has been partitioned off and is effectively halved in size -and of course this turned out to be the biggest attendance in a long while - 20 people came along to listen to THE iChat guru, Ralph Johns. So we were cramped a little but managed to squeeze everybody in.

Before he started there was time for a short Q & A session - it seems that both iOS5 and… Read more…

John opened a lively meeting with 22 members present.

- On being shown some final prototype large monitors "Can't you make the corners a bit more round"? This led to an increase in production costs of some 3 to 4 million Dollars
- On interviewing a lady applicant… Read more…
