We started the evening with a discussion on Yosemite. Opening the discussion, John suggested that from the various comments he had read it would seem best to stick with Mavericks for the time being. But the eight or so members present who had upgraded were quite happy with Yosemite; Graham had got over his early WiFi problems by switching from Automatic location to a manual setting. David and Drew had their Computers showing up in… Read more…

Mick Burrell gave a presentation outlining the new features in both OSX 10.10 Yosemite and iOS8. There was a very good attendance for this – Mick seems to draw the crowds! It was good to see Mick showing us in his usual concise and easily understood fashion what we can now do with our Macs, iPads and iPhones, and also to learn which of these can be updated to the latest operating systems. The… Read more…

Keychains were introduced in 1997 with OS 8.6 to store passwords, wireless keys etc. and to allow designated apps to use this information so that there is no need to type it in every time you visit a web page. John demonstrated how Keychain Access (found in the Utilities folder) is used to manage the passwords stored in your Login Keychain… Read more…

David M. opened a discussion on IOS 8 by regretting the loss of the camera roll and photo stream but seemed a loan voice. More positively David P. demonstrated the excellent enhancements to the camera and the ability to select the area in picture to focus on first and then to adjust lighting. Mick then demonstrated the much improved editing facilities in the photo app. Both Sheena and John had had problems updating to iOS… Read more…

Despite a Wednesday meeting being an unusual night for the Beaminster meeting, there was a respectable turnout to hear Michael Corgan showing ways of adding, altering and sharing photographs using the iPad. He first went through adding photos using Apple and non-Apple connection kits which will either connect to the camera or with an SD card. As alternatives photos can be added via iTunes on a Mac, or (in iOS7 at least) using Photostream… Read more…

Lionel Ogden gave the members a talk on Data Backup and specifically the need for offline or remote backup. He reviewed the various online services available from many companies. Usually these services are free until a specific value of data is stored, then the prices vary.

Concerns with online storage services are:
The data upload speed from the local computer to the remote server, even fibre connected machines would experience quite a… Read more…

With annual updates to the iPhone now routine, iOS updates naturally are following the same pattern. Furthermore, as the iOS and MacOS are becoming more tightly integrated, Apple have now adopted an annual update cycle… Read more…

Euan gave a very interesting talk on adjusting the quality of photos which one might otherwise simply discard. He arranged semicircular seating around the screen so we could more closely see  the adjustments as they were made. Starting with iPhoto Euan showed the effects of adjusting levels which had the most immediate effect and then showed the effects of playing with Exposure, Contrast, Saturation and the other adjustments offered by iPhoto.
