  • 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 ...
  • Or use continue to use iPhoto, supplemented with an external editor [Pixelmator, Acorn, Photoshop elements]. [You can search the forum and find many Lightroom vs Aperture threads, and Aperture vs ...
  • iPhoto, Aperture [and presumably the Yosemite 'Photos' application] provide a non destructive workflow. This means that the original image file is not altered when you edit inside iPhoto. The ...
  • Outlook does [employer uses M$ stuff] I presume the rest of the suite is no worse on a Mac than on Windows. Not that I know of [I have Safari, Opera, Chrome, Firefox, Seamonkey on my Mac - any of ...
  • You may want to look at the 'refurbished' section of the apple store website. The prices there are better than educational or corporate discounts for the same hardware. They also will carry some ...
