To start the year, David M showed some some of the more surprising editable features of Apple’s vector Clip Art including how make a window frame round a video, and modify, add to, and subtract from shapes.

Euan gave a full demonstration of NeoFinder (was CDFinder) which quickly catalogs and manages your entire media and disk library. It is a much more fully featured version of the Mac Finder which can… Read more…

The year commenced with David P presenting the various uses of maps on an iPhone or iPad. The focus was on Apple Maps but the ubiquitous Google Maps was included to highlight the additional facilities available from this app. Bing maps offers access to OS maps but can only be accessed via a search engine under OSX. Members followed the presentation on their own devices. Whilst neither Apple nor Google maps accepts a What3Word search… Read more…

Trevor gave a great demonstration as to why we should all be giving more attention to the IOS/iPad OS app Shortcuts, now a lot more powerful and included by Apple by default in IOS 13. There are already a large number of Shortcuts available from the built-in Gallery and through the cloud and many can be integrated into other Apple apps. He showed that in Photos you can access the “Where Was… Read more…

Members were invited to follow along using Macs or iPads with David Moon’s workshop session. To make this possible two screens were used - one mirroring the Mac and the other the iPad. David used Keynote as his vehicle to demonstrate a host of features which are common to many Apple programmes: importing photos, using shapes to mask the photos and how to edit those shapes, animation (Santa was flying across the screen in… Read more…

Tuesday’s meeting brought a small (but select) group of 9 together to talk about Mac tips and tricks. We started with impressions of, and best new features in, Catalina. Most people have already updated but there weren’t too many new features noted; the best new item was sidecar (using an iPad as a second display) that David later demoed, including using an Apple Pencil in Affinity Designer. Sidecar works with: 2016… Read more…

Mick Burrell gave a talk on the oft confusing term ‘Things in the Cloud’. Whilst it has become a generic term Mick focused exclusively on the Apple elements - iCloud and iCloud Drive. Why are there two and are they different? If there is one thing to take away it is this: iCloud synchronises while iCloud Drive stores. He then gave details on how to set up access to both elements on each of… Read more…

Again our meeting was held in a training room, as it is not possible to turn the lights off in the training room we used the large TV for the presentation, a projected image was too difficult to see.

We began with a Q&A.

Euan then presented his Painting with Filters showing how to use filters and layers to create multiple effects in the Affinity suite of applications that… Read more…
