The meeting was introduced by John; 24 members were present. Two presentations were offered.

The first was by Ryan, entitled 'Confessions of a portrait photographer'. Ryan is from the Dorchester firm Ryetography. They use iphoto as a viewer, which serves for organisation, and the faces and places features are also useful, together with the editing and retouch tool. Photoshop has many more sophisticated tools available, but it is a fine line to define… Read more…

We started off the session with a look at just how easy it is to put together a presentation using Keynote. Whilst lots of its features are a bit "flash" there's plenty of variety to enable you to tailor your presentation to your audience. The session was so successful, I was inundated with volunteers to put something together for future meetings.

Lionel then stepped up and took us through brief demos… Read more…

Despite rain and terrible traffic problems there was a very good attendance - 14 people were there to see a demo of some of the basic features of Numbers by Marco of the Solutions staff. We were greted by Lucy, the store manageress, annd that is an indication of the fresh and helpful approach that Solutions will be taking towards our Group.

While Numbers is an easy spreadsheet to set up and use it… Read more…

John introduced the meeting with 27 members and prospective members present - something of a record for WAMUG - unless anyone knows better!

Mick gave a demonstration of Pages - part of the iWork suite, which was aimed at new users. Pages comes supplied with many useful templates, but Mick showed us how to set up a new letter format in Pages from scratch using the Inspector, and then went on to show how a simple… Read more…

We had 14 members in attendance this month. Terry kicked off the meeting with a demo of an ION USB Turntable which is used to digitise your vinyl collection (on loan from our Membership Secretary, Michael Corgan). Using the software Final Vinyl, Terry showed us that the process is fairly straightforward yet time consuming, especially if you have a large number of records.

After the hot drinks and doughnuts we began discussing the… Read more…

I think it's fair to say that not having a meeting in December has been detrimental to the Salisbury group. It seems that the long gap from the end of November has brought on withdrawal symptoms in some members and seen them return spoiling for a fight! This was clearly in evidence during our first demonstration of the feature that Apple first Introduced with Leopard i.e. Spaces. As with most operations on the Mac there… Read more…

A non-meeting tonight. Certainly one brave soul was turned away by Solutions staff who told him - and it was his first meeting so that he couldn't argue - that the meeting was booked for Thursday. Those of us who found each other waitin likke orphans in the cold sat over coffees and other warming drinks in the friendly Italian restaurant and held a mini-meting. A worried checking of emails confirmed that the third Tuesday of… Read more…

Our meeting on 12 January was attended by 14 members, who had braved the weather conditions to be present.

We commenced with a review by David Churchill of "Mac OSX Snow Leopard - Portable Genius", written by Dwight Spivey, and published by Wiley. David is preparing a written version of his review, which will be referenced in a later comment on this entry. Broadly, the book, although useful, was actually a bit… Read more…

Despite appalling weather and the close proximity of Christmas, neither of which is conducive to a large turnout for any meeting there was a respectable number of hardy souls present at Solutions, to be greeted by a surfeit of mince pies - half provided by your Committee, and half, as a welcome surprise, by Solutions.

Solutions were once more unfortunately unable to give a presentation on the features of Snow Leopard, so instead there… Read more…

Our meeting was, as usual, opened by John, with 13 members present.

David of purbecmacsupport.com gave us a very well researched presentation on Google Apps and Services. The first to be discussed was Google mail, which could very easily be set up to work with the Apple Mail application, and, with EMAP, was very suitable for use when more than one mac was used to access a single mail account. He also… Read more…
