Only five people at the meeting this month.
Andy Banks introduced us to Swift Publisher - a DTP package that he uses to produce a monthly newsletter/magazine on one of his other interests.

He selected Swift Publisher as it gave good page layout control and was priced very reasonably.
Some notable attributes of the product are very competent text flow across columns and pages and around images.
Te product included… Read more…

We started off with the usual question and answer session and most of this centred around early experiences of iCloud but then Brian gave us an excellent presentation on iMovie. He showed us how to take a series of still photos but moving the subject slightly in each one and then stringing them together to make a short animated movie. Obviously the photography stage could be a bit time consuming and the smaller the subject… Read more…

The meeting space at Solutions has been partitioned off and is effectively halved in size -and of course this turned out to be the biggest attendance in a long while - 20 people came along to listen to THE iChat guru, Ralph Johns. So we were cramped a little but managed to squeeze everybody in.

Before he started there was time for a short Q & A session - it seems that both iOS5 and… Read more…

John opened a lively meeting with 22 members present.

Gordon was first man in, and started by quoting some short anecdotes which helped us to recall the unique nature of Steve Jobs
- On being shown some final prototype large monitors "Can't you make the corners a bit more round"? This led to an increase in production costs of some 3 to 4 million Dollars
- On interviewing a lady applicant… Read more…

The meeting was quite a cosy affair with just seven members and a meeting room short of tables due to the set up of an important meeting due to take place in the next room.

Lionel began by giving a personal view of his experiences downloading and working with Lion over the last few weeks. It appears that this is one of the most significant upgrades to MAC OSX since its introduction and… Read more…

We had 7 members attending. Andy Banks opened the meeting and introduced Alan Clemmy who gave an excellent talk on his experiences with Apple's iMovie application.

Alan started to use iMovie when he got his first movie camera. He went on to show us some of the work his school has produced when 60 to 70 students and staff produced a movie to show case their work to the end of year assembly… Read more…

Lionel began the meeting with a short Q & A session followed by a brief explanation of Dropbox and its uses. This was a little curtailed by a small problem with the wi-fi connection not allowing a demonstration.

However this was forgotten when Mick gave an interesting demonstration of the use of Smart Folders, Smart Albums in iPhoto and Smart Playlists in iTunes. It was shown how these can automate the sorting… Read more…

John opened the meeting with 19 members present.

Mick talked about Smart folders in finder, and in three Apple applications.
The first example was Mail, in which smart mailboxes keeps a copy, or rather a pointer to the original message. This is similar to  Rules, but can process sent mail as well. (It is worth noting that this limitation in Rules can be worked around… Read more…

This month we were looking at two aspects of using a Mac that are not new but seem not to be widely used - at least by those attending last Wednesday. Firstly, Gordon took us through using Smart Folders in the Finder, Mail, iPhoto and iTunes to show us how they could be used to automatically collect certain items together for ease of use. We then went on to look at the differences between POP and… Read more…

We had eight attendees at the meeting including Euan and Martin from the west.
The subject was Lion - as this is quite a hefty topic Derek decided to use the skills of Apple’s Phil Schiller, Senior Vice President Worldwide Product Marketing, and Craig Federighi Vice President OS X Software to introduce Lion from Apple’s perspective.

He then had Soldierknowsbest (Mark Weston) a technical reviewer to present the Features of Lion… Read more…
