An average turnout of 14 to hear an excellent presentation by Michael on what can be done with Preview. He showed that this app, which comes free with every Mac, has a surprising range of capabilities in dealing with both PDFs and with images. He showed that these files could be imported into the app not only from a Mac, but from a scanner, direct from a camera, and of course from external drives, CDs… Read more…

A quick check round the 17 members present showed a good level of backup procedures. Quite a few use Time machine on a non-continuous basis and others had secondary backups of photos and other files. Some members used drive partitions for clones and Time Machine backups on external drives. Mick who has business documents on his computer keeps a backup off-site in case of fire or other disaster. There was a discussion about cloud… Read more…

On the hottest evening of the year so far, six gently perspiring members gathered to be welcomed by the staff of Solutions. Thankfully the basement door had been kept open all day so the room was still surprisingly comfortable for us to settle down and listen to Euan's talk on Masks and Masking.

After an introduction to the concept of masks in all their forms, Euan demonstrated the simple (but very useful) Instant… Read more…

He mentioned that a few of the commonly used settings were… Read more…
