A smaller than usual attendance of 12 was proof that on summer evenings it is sometimes more attractive to be out and about or having a barbecue!
There were two presentations - a very brief one by Michael, giving the case for using the keyboard instead of the cursor to carry out a number of actions on a Mac. The least known at Ctrl+T which will swap the letters on either side of the cursor… Read more…

Euan Williams gave us a very interesting presentation about type, logos and layout, and the influence of printing technology on design, “Twiddling Type”.

After some conceptual quotations from several leading European type designers he discussed line and letter spacing options in Apple’s Pages application showing how adjustments to leading, kerning and column width can make the words read and fit better. Some advanced typographic features within the professional QuarkXpress… Read more…

Mick gave us a talk on handling photos, aimed at those of us who have loads! We first of all looked at Apple's iCloud offerings - iCloud Photo Library, My Photo Stream and iCloud Photo Sharing. There were lots of questions as the talk progressed, people clearing up their misunderstandings or making sure they'd grasped it. He then went on to cover freeing up space on your device - perhaps not needed as much on a Mac… Read more…

David M related the difficulties (but ultimate success) experienced in transferring the May meeting video to DVD. When the video was played in Quicktime, the .AVI Format recording appeared to have stalled about 35 minutes into the take. Euan had all sorts of problems with ‘corrupt’ frames trying to edit the video in iMovie. However when the video was converted using “Aimersoft Video Ultimate Converter” to MP4 not only did it… Read more…

There were 13 members at this meeting and John gave us a presentation covering 3 topics.

He began with On-line Banking, this basically allows you to access your account details and statements from your own bank or building society, and to carry out transactions like transferring money or paying bills etc. The main advantages are… 24/7 accessibility, portability away from home, easy to use and it’s free!

Another good meeting, with 18 people present, including one new person, not yet a member (but we are working on it!) Mick gave a first class presentation on the A-to-Z of the iPad and iPhone. There was something there for everyone, from the most experienced to the absolute beginner, and many functions of these were explained and eyes opened as to what can be done with them and how to change functions to… Read more…

After a short Q&A

John Hooper gave us a very interesting presentation about the Vision Impairment Features found on the iPad and the Mac (most of them should also work on the iPhone).

John started by demonstrating how to use Fullscreen Zoom then Window Zoom, the latter being fully adjustable using a 'floating' controller icon.

He then covered Magnifier, which uses the main camera to view small… Read more…

May's meeting's main event was an introduction to some of iTunes' features from Michael Corgan featuring some beautifully orchestrated slides. Michael started with the rhetorical question of "What does it do?", to which the answer was "A lot!".

Michael continued by describing the many ways to control iTunes, including on-screen buttons, function keys and keyboard shortcuts. He then moved on to adding material to iTunes' library (notably by… Read more…

We've now settled back permanently into our previous meeting room, Classroom E2, and there were 8 members attending this time.

John Lemon from the Beaminster group gave us an excellent talk about ViewRanger.
This is an App that was created by Ordnance Survey, and allows you to view very detailed maps on the iPad and iPhone, as well as on other smart phones.
There is an extensive range of maps in… Read more…

“Twiddling Type”

If we were to take one underlying message from this fascinating subject it is that good style and appearance should enable the content and not divert attention away from it. The reader should be fully absorbed in the content and barely be aware of all the effort and care put into its layout on the page.

Before the interval, Euan took us through the gamut of font… Read more…
