  • There's always something new around the corner! :-D
  • I would suggest an iMac rather than a Macbook, unless you're stuck for space or need a portable solution. Then, check out Apple Refurbished in the Apple Store. Then buy the most expensive you can ...
  • Well, I love my E-M1 and find it the best camera I have used, to date. BUT - each to their own. There is no universal best camera, and if you bond better with another, then good on you. Enjoy - ...
  • I was a senior IT Manager, with responsibilities including managing technicians who maintained about 2000 Windows PCs. I am now retired. Last year I moved from a reasonable spec (self-built) PC to ...
  • If you really do need a Macbook 24x7, why not rent one while your's is being fixed?
  • Lightroom, or maybe PS Elements.
  • Not even the Camera Name is shown on my Olympus or Panasonic raw files, I'm afraid (that's using Mavericks, BTW).
  • Ah, the age-old solution. "If in doubt, plug it out"!
  • Last November I changed from 20+ years of professionally supporting and using PCs to an iMac 27". Best thing I did. When you retire, like I have, you no longer want the hassle of supporting the ...
  • I'm a relative newcomer to Macs, and have been toiling with the Magic Mouse. I thought I'd got used to it. But then I came across the Logitech Anywhere MX. This gives the control I was used to ...
  • I only use PS or Elements when I need to create photocards with text layers, or work with layers such as for panoramas or focus stacking. As I strive to "get it right in the camera" Lightroom more ...
  • "Enough" ram is just that little bit more than you can afford.
  • As a newcomer to iMac I asked a similar question here a few weeks ago, and following some excellent advice decided on this strategy: I run two iterations of Time Machine on its normal, standard ...
  • Replied in Howard M.
    Exactly. Then, from the CC Manager, you install your product(s).
  • Assuming you're subscribed to a Creative Cloud program, then you are allowed to have two iterations of each application, and they can be on both platforms.  Simply login to your Creative Cloud ...
  • I've been using an Antec 7 port powered USB 3.0 hub for nearly two years now. First on my Windows PC, and now on my iMac. Run 2 backup drives and a USB 3.0 card reader off it faultlessly.
  • Thanks for the comments and hints about backups. I forgot to mention that before my retirement I was an IT manager, including some time as Disaster Recovery analyst and IT Security manager. So the ...
  • Oh, I had no problem installing the printers. No, my mindset difficulty is making such adjustments as paper size and source, profile, duplexing, borderless, etc. The Mac can do it, it's just ...
  • I made the move about 6 weeks ago. I picked up an iMac from the (UK) Apple Refurbished store. Was able to get a Late2012 27" i5 3.2ghz, with 16Gb ram and a 3Tb Fusion drive, which runs Lightroom ...
  • Thanks. I did not realise you could use TM on multiple drives. Anyway, I've decided on the simple strategy of TM to one external disk, and I'm trialling Carbon Copy on a second external. Of ...
