We were pleased to welcome Derek Wright to the meeting this month. Derek uses Aperture extensively and he very ably demonstrated its capabilities showing us how it takes things much further than iPhoto. We looked at importing to folders and manipulating the image by adjusting sliders (contrast or exposure for example) but also by using the histograms. For users of 10.6.6 or later, Aperture is an absolute bargain for £45 on The… Read more…

Tuesday’s meeting was well attended with a dozen people assembled to learn about music making on the Mac and to meet and question the editor of the premium Mac magazine, iCreate.

A presentation by Nick from Solutions took us, at some speed, through the wide range of abilities of GarageBand. This turns out to be a very competent program with a terrific range of options, of pre-recorded short pieces of music… Read more…

Michael had a problem in that he had lost his Address Book entries, and was having difficulty in restoring them using Time Machine. Where is data stored? Reference was made to files which were kept in association with different applications; in this case, the place to look… Read more…

We started the meeting with what was hopefully a solution to an iPhoto issue and then carried on to offer advice about which to purchase - iPad2, MacBook Air or the basic MacBook. We were all chipping in with various pros and cons so I'm not sure Michael is any further forward but we should see what decision he made next time!

Several of us knew that Disc Utility cannot repair the disc it's… Read more…

An interesting evening revolving around the attributes and worth of MobileMe - ably demonstrated by Marco of Solutions. The discussions went on to cover a wider range, amongst other subjects touched on a comparison between SuperDuper and Time Machine. This was to the detriment of the former, as the argument in favour of Time Machine is that it does not interfere with the layout of the hard drive sectors, something which is apparently done by SuperDuper… Read more…

The start of the evenings' programme was not auspicious – the presentation on iChat and Skype that Michael had given the previous week at Dorchester had to arrive on a memory stick, as his laptop was away having the hard drive replaced. However as the presentation was made in Keynote '09 it couldn't run on the '08 version in Lionel's MacBook, nor would the '09 copy of Keynote that Michael had thought to put on the… Read more…
