16 members attended to hear John Ansell's talk entitled "Whether to iCloud?"
John suggested that the easiest way to think of iCloud is that it adds some more internet-based services to those we are already familiar with, such as the world wide web and email.

All these services store information somewhere in the Internet, then the service is provided by an application running on computers typically located in data… Read more…

Eleven people attended this meeting, including one new member.

The start was delayed due to some technical problems connecting to the Wifi.

Euan explained that masking is laying a partially translucent or opaque layer over an image to affect the appearance of the image without affecting the original.  The mask can affect only a selected part, parts, or the whole of the image, the level of transparency of the mask varying the intensity of the effect. The default red colour of a mask is based on “Rubylith” a red transparent film used in traditional… Read more…

There was quite a good attendance (14 in all) to hear and see two presentations.

The first was a demonstration by Roy Moore of the free iPad/iPhone app “Snapseed”. This proved to be a very competent and easy-to-use app for manipulating photographs. As chairman of the Beaminster Camera Club Roy knew of what he spake and gave us a good set of examples to show the power… Read more…

Our first meeting of 2016 was very and interesting with my plan to try to get everyone involved a success but I did not take into account that they would all want to chip in at once, the result was quite a lively affair.

We had a look at some favourite Apps for iPad and MacBook, including, iPianist, Sky Guide and… Read more…

22 people, including 3 new prospective members and a welcome delegation from Dorchester, squeezed into Solutions to hear Tony give a second presentation of his talk on Photos. To avoid duplication, this report should be read as an adjunct to the report below of the Fareham meeting of 9th January.

The views or display options in the iOS and OSX versions of Photos are quite similar but Tony highlighted and explained a few… Read more…

In answer to a question we concluded that the best way to put together a book of photos with a small amount of text is to use an online printing service such as Apple books Photobox or similar.   

Keeping both iPhotos and Photos running at the same time was causing some confusion to David and others. The conclusion was that most could operate happily on just Photos but make a back… Read more…

There was a good turnout by 15 members and one guest at this first meeting of 2016.

Tony Still gave a very interesting and detailed presentation about Apple's "Photos" app, the replacement for iPhoto. As a Lightroom user, he was new to "Photos" and urged people to look at it again if they were put off when it was first released with Yosemite, it has improved since then. The… Read more…

Another good meeting with 17 people present. Very pleased to especially welcome Group Treasurer and Dorchester organised David Moon, also from Dorchester Euan Williams.
Mick gave a presentation to show us some simple if not obvious things that one can do in Safari. Very useful, and even some of the more experienced members were finding new ideas. AS always, after the presentation the meeting dissolved into a series of little groups discussing many different… Read more…

Tony kicked off another well attended meeting by again introducing Ollie of Solutions for a presentation and demonstration of iPad Pro.

The main feature is of course the screen, measuring 12.9in and, with the same aspect ratio as earlier iPads, it has 78% more area than the iPad Air, making it the highest resolution screen Apple make. The iPad Pro has four speakers so delivers better sound quality too. As well as… Read more…
