  • Yes, once you move the library, all future iMovie files and projects will exist there, with the exception of iMovie Theater.  In order to ensure that iMovie is using the new location, once you ...
  • How to move your entire library: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203049 How to selectively move events: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH14745?locale=en_US
  • This is my thinking as well, and why I haven't moved away from Aperture for my older photos, and have been trying to use only Photos (and Aperture for more involved edits) for everything I've ...
  • I read in passing somewhere that Apple indicated that they would not turn on Extensions in Photos 1.0, but it would be able to use them in future versions.
  • Good catch - I missed that. I was reacting too violently to the rest of the post...
  • Any album created on your Mac is now on your iOS device. So like I said, if you had a bunch of events in iPhoto and migrated your library, you now have a bunch of albums in the Album view on ...
  • I am using Photos. On my iOS devices, in the 'Albums' view, I have: (1) All Photos (basically 'Camera Roll' and it has the photos organized by when they were added)
  • You're right, I did. When you said "Stop using it", I assumed you meant "stop using Time Machine", not "stop using the Time Machine drive that has filled up and replace it with a new drive and ...
  • Ditto for me.. got the original G3, then was lost in the wilderness for some years using Dells, then regained my mind and came back to Apple by way of a 2008 iMac. I'm now on the fence between the ...
  • I don't see what you are proposing as a replacement for Time Machine, but as complimentary. Time Machine, cloned drives (both onsite and offsite) as well as cloud backup all have their places and ...
  • Time Machine WILL NOT delete a backup of a file that you currently have on your HD. It will only delete files from the past that are no longer on your hard drive, or prior versions of files that ...
  • An answer to "what" exactly? Was there a question? Or just a statement that RAW adjustments in Photos was different than that in iPhoto, and not as full-featured as Aperture? Photos is not a ...
  • No brushes, minimal DAM/keyword support. There's an article on the DPReview homepage where someone is comparing Photos to Aperture. May be helpful for you... http://www.dpreview.com/articles/507400 ...
  • I use an older iMac (2008) as well as a 2012 MBA (i7/8GB/256GB), which is really my wife's primary computer. I use the MBA strictly when traveling. However, I am in the market for a new desktop, ...
  • That is correct. It will throttle back down if/when it hits the magic temperature (100 degC is often cited). So it really depends on the situation. Having a MBA in my household, I have tested this ...
  • Early 2008 iMac here, 2.8GHz C2D with 6GM RAM and 256GB SSD running 10.10.3. Runs fine, except that the GPU is used more often. I believe that starting with Mavericks (maybe even Mountain Lion?) ...
  • Replied in Lightroom nt
    From the American Society of Media Photographers - Pixel editor vs. parametric editor: "In the most basic kind of image editing, you must actually alter the image pixels to make a change. So, to ...
  • That particular model of MBA, while it has a 1.4GHz processor, only runs at 1.4GHz while idle. Its processor speed increases to match demand via the Turbo Boost mode. You daughter's goes up to ...
  • Replied in Lightroom nt
    If someone wants to leave Adobe - like the OP - WHY would you recommend an Adobe product?
  • Replied in Photoshop ???
    Both Affinity Photo beta and Pixelmator can open and edit layered PSD files. There ARE limitations on the ability to edit text layers and other complex layers. It's not 100% compatible but does ...
