  • I agree. I'd go a bit further and say this is a photographers' website, and posts that help them are to be welcomed.
  • I'm guessing he means the inability to have a 'sticky' post that stays at the top of the list.  Typical FAQs are 'how do I stop Photos opening when I insert an SD card/connect a camera' and 'Where ...
  • They are packages, essentially folders masquerading as a file. You'll find most applications are also deployed in this way. Right-click on them and select 'Show package contents' to reveal all.
  • I'm happy for them to do whatever to make oodles of profit, no matter that I couldn't care less about advanced emojis and bright and bouncy image filters, so long as they invest back into ...
  • You might get a result if you put the disk itself into a different housing. To answer your original question, it sounds more like a job for a computer technician than a data recovery expert. If ...
  • Sorry to say, that sounds very much like a dead drive, unless it's not formatted for OS X and you haven't looked with Disk Utility. What type of system did it come from (i.e. where and how was it ...
  • Hi Martin, Some of those reports will be from me. Sorry! Probably best to just dump them all and start with a clean sheet. Welcome to my new Overlord ;-)
  • It should work (I just tried it, and it did with three images). As an alternative to opening the images from the Finder, try starting preview; File->open, select files and open, select all in ...
  • I had the screen on my MBP replaced at an Apple store this year; they did it the same afternoon I took the machine in. I did have to wait a few days for the appointment though.
  • Slower, yes, but probably still acceptably fast. I have my images on a Mac Mini server and don't notice any delays when editing. There probably is an impact if you export a large number in a ...
  • Is that an evidence-based statement, or just a wild guess based on the book's title? Where in the book does it say it applies only (or even only sometimes) to a managed user  environment? I guess ...
  • That's like someone who's smoked all their lives without getting lung cancer citing their experience as evidence that smoking doesn't cause lung cancer. I already did.
  • The point is about reducing risk. There's a risk of being hit by a car every time you cross a road. Just because I've never had that misfortune, doesn't mean I don't mitigate the risk by looking ...
  • I guess you're saying Apple doesn't recommend it. They don't recommend using any particular type of account, but their aim is to keep things simple, not optimal. A standard account is better for ...
  • Apple make the first account an Admin account because there has to be at least one Admin account on a machine. If they made the first account a standard account, you would be stuffed, since you ...
  • Consider whether you will get more benefit from 12 slower (2.7GHz) cores or 6 faster (3.5GHz) cores.
  • As a general rule that is simply not true. Installation of some software may require a password, depending where and what it is installing, but not all. There is absolutely no need to use an admin ...
  • Short answer: no. There is at least one 3rd-party product for Windows which claims to allow access to an HFS file system. I have no idea how well it works, not anything about it other than it came ...
  • Replied in NAS or not?
    Echoing what RobBob said, what you have at the moment is simple and low-maintenance; a NAS is not simple and low-maintenance, so be very clear about advantages and disadvantages before committing ...
  • That's because it's formatted as ExFAT, which doesn't support Unix file permissions. You'll need to back up your data, reformat it for MacOS and copy back your data as a start. You'd then need to ...
