David Parnell gave a fascinating talk and demonstration on how he edits photographs using Adobe Lightroom and whilst it showed Lightroom to be an excellent product, it was as much the techniques he used, also available using other software, that he wished to get across. To be totally authentic he started by taking a photo David M with a Father Christmas hat and then adjusted the appearance both overall and using filters and masks applied… Read more…

Next he set up the approximate number of slides he might require to… Read more…

Such is the lure of the Apple Watch that a positive crowd of 14 braved storm Barney to hear Oli of Solutions tell us all about it.

After an introductory video, Oli ran through the main features, highlighting how Notifications makes it easy to read and respond to messages etc. either by selecting from pre-defined responses or by dictation. The watch also uses Siri who can be addressed by pressing the Digital… Read more…

David Moon gave a very interesting and informative talk about the Apple Watch.
He described the various faces and straps that were available. The watch works mainly as a slave to an iPhone, but it can function on its own to play music via bluetooth headphones or speakers as he demonstrated.
David was very impressed by the Activity App, which… Read more…

Not only was the weather unkind for our last meeting, but the gods also appeared to be working against us in another direction!

There was a small attendance, which is not surprising, given the rain. But when Michael tried to make his presentation, while it showed up as designed on Robin’s MacBook Pro, all that could be seen on the screen was a black square with a small white square in… Read more…

After a battle with a Mac and projector that were not on speaking terms, John Hooper got off to a late start in showing us how keyboard shortcuts, in lieu of using the mouse for everything, can improve the efficiency of common tasks on the Mac and now iPad too. We discovered that most of us use few shortcuts beyond cut and paste.
John distributed a comprehensive reference sheet of shortcuts and highlighted their… Read more…
