  • Pay attention as in Macs, it is recommended that memory go in parity. So you need to have two same memory sticks (2 X 2GB or 2 X 4 GB or 2 X 8 GB). Also, as stated before, you can download the ...

  • Well...I have been an iPhone and iOS fan forever until I saw Nokia phones recently.  I must admit that I am highly tempted to dump my iPhone and move to Windows Phone on a heartbeat.  I like ...

  • I am testing it right now with Capture One express 7 too. I would say that ASP is pretty good actually. The import or download is a bit clunky though. It does not work like Aperture. You ...

  • Hey... Just ran a few tests.  My card reader was plugged in a USB Hub and I think this hub was the culprit.  I plugged the card reader directly in the Mac and it seems to have fixed the issue. ...
  • Hey, thank you very much for your help, this is greatly appreciated. Here is how I do it: (I will try to remember since I am not home now) First, i make sure my AfterShot catalogue is open. I go ...
  • Hi, In the demise of Aperture, I am actually giving Corel ASP 2 a try and so far I like the results I am getting with it with my Nikon NEF files. However, I do have some questions to make sure I ...
  • Directly from Ars Technica : "The little we've seen of the new Photos app included more editing sliders and options than the default app has included in the past. However, Apple didn't take today ...
  • Thanks for all the info guys, it is really appreciated. Corel is actually giving an extra 10% reduction on their softwares so I will take the plunge. 53$ is quite low risk. I also saw Capture One ...
