It was nice to have a demo that had been requested! This month, Denis gave an excellent follow-up to his previous PhotoShop presentation, showing us more of the versatility of the full version - CS6.

Brian and Reg did a double act for us this month taking us through how you get started with producing a newsletter using Pages. Despite the restrictions of using the small laptop screen rather than the somewhat larger screen of his iMac, Reg managed to move stuff around and show us how he produced the main header banner from different components and then grouped them all together to be moved around as one. He then… Read more…

The iPod Touch and the Apple Remote App came next, followed by Airfoil to stream from the BBC iPlayer on a MacBook. However it was only with the advent of Airplay on… Read more…
