  • If you've deleted the folders on your local drive [the one TM is backing up] over three years ago, then you will not be able to use TM to recover those folders. On the other hand, TM does have the ...
  • The recently released Macbook [thinner that the 'Air' series] needs a different adapter - USB 'C' to whatever your projector's preferred input is [hdmi]
  • Missing a choice: Ignoring Photos for now, sticking with AP3 while seeing how alternatives develop Perhaps this summer, I'll look at capture one & aftershot. So far I've just done the OS X update, ...
  • Another place to do comparison shopping in the the 'refurbished' section of the online Apple Store. The machines come from Apple, with the same warranty as 'new' machines. They may be the current ...
  • In Aperture, this would be done with the 'light table' [select, size, arrange, adjust a group of images] then print the arrangement .
  • On the other hand, I am an old school shooter [manual focus, exposure and film winder], and for some circumstances I've taught myself to keep both eyes engaged when photographing active subjects ...
  • Even with a 'managed' library, you can always export [a copy of] the original file. For that matter, iPhoto can easily be configured to use a 'referenced' library, where _you_ are responsible for ...
  • Comparing the two antique lenses [I had both for my FTb and Pellex] The Macro lens: (1) A longer focusing helicoid [lens extends further, focuses closer] than the 'normal' lens.
  • I can't make a recommendation without knowing what their needs or constraints are. Mac's come in three basic form factors - Notebooks [Macbook Air, Macbook Pro], all in one [iMac] and box with ...
  • Dropbox maintains a copy of deleted files for at least 30 days - see https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/11
  • Well, I just got the order confirmation - Retina with 512Gig SSD Hopefully, I'll get over seven years out of this machine [and the white macbook replaces my wife's slightly newer ['late 2007'] ...
  • Either Pro [Retina or Rust] would be much faster than this computer. There are some add on expenses no matter which one I go with [e.g. new thunderbolt or USB 3 enclosures replacing the FW400 ...
  • That is the case - the spinning rust Macbook pro is about 400 cheaper than the Retina version with the same storage [counting an aftermarket RAM upgrade to 8gig] In fact, the aftermarket upgrade ...
  • It is past time to replace my 2007 Macbook [updated to 4gig ram, 500gig hard drive] Currently, SSD's are much more expensive than hard drives, so what should be an easy decision is complicated by ...
  • Several backups, with at least one complete copy stored away from the computer. I currently do not use network 'cloud' backup, but I do use both Time Machine and a couple of cloned [bootable] ...
  • JPEG files should not be any problem. Raw compatibility was added this fall - but probably requires at least OSX 10.9 [Raw conversion is an OSX feature - not an iPhoto or Aperture feature] See this ...
  • Your best anti malware solution is between the keyboard and chair. [same place as most security problems] (1) Use a non admin account for routine operations [everything except installing software and ...
  • I would almost second this - except I would suggest switching to a Mac [iPhoto and the forthcoming 'Photos' application for organization, plus some sort of external editor for the rare edits that ...
  • The unix innards of OSX are a few more generations past AUX, and have a more BSD flavor thanks to NeXT David Pogue's Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual usually is recommended A disc clone ...
  • The OpenOffice project now has two active forks - the lead project is now at http://www.libreoffice.org The Apache project has some more useful development documentation, but is currently the less ...
