  • Exactly the answer I expected.
  • When you pick yourself up off the floor and stop laughing, could you share with us, in technical terms such as benchmarks, what defines a "crap" vs "non-crap" GPU?  Thx
  • In case you haven't already checked it out, LibreOffice is a very good replacement for MS Office 2011 and is compatible with Catalina.
  • If you're going to do most of your photo work at home with a large monitor, the new 13" MacBook Pro (the upper tier one with the new processor) will be far more powerful than anything you've used ...
  • Replied in Update . . .
    Another way to start going about this which is likely less painful is to simply create a new user account on the Mac.  It will have access to all of the apps but will use its own new set of ...
  • I think that's standard.  An external editor doesn't actually edit a RAW image file, it simply records edits that, by and large. only it knows how to interpret.  What it sends back to Photos is a ...
  • Similarly, take a look at On1 Photo RAW.  They seem to be actively developing it and the DAM functionality has come a long way.  The image editing capabilities are quite good now and one of the ...
  • You can record with various Apple apps on a Mac. Scroll down past the iPhone/iPad section to "Record Audio on a Mac": https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208845
  • The On1 people have been sending me emails about their On1 360 service which is coming any day now I gather. I haven't tried it but it looks like it combines On1 Photo RAW with a multiplatform ...
  • Not for me in Catalina.  I went to Finder, selected a DNG file, hit the Space Bar (QuickView window displaying the image comes up), press Cmd-I, and the normal GetInfo window is generated. ...
  • If you're using QuickView, pressing Cmd I will bring up the Get Info window for the image (just as if you're using Finder itself) which displays a subset of the EXIF data. The problem is that ...
  • If you anticipate "pushing" your machine, the base MacBook Pro might be the better choice.  Used lightly, the MacBook Air (similar configuration) might be better.  The key is the MBP was designed ...
  • Wow, what great ideas from many!  My wife and I went to MicroCenter yesterday to do some shopping.  One thing that I probably didn't communicate well enough, if it all, is this is a piano studio ...
  • Yes, of course.  For what's she's doing, it's not ideal to have the camera and the monitor in the same place.  That's the attractiveness of a webcam. They all carry webcams but none of them have ...
  • Many thanks for the ideas and comments. I think I stumbled across an adapter that would do what I'm looking to do without needing a specific USB-C monitor: https://www.microcenter.com/product/60231 ...
  • Many thanks! I know it's a bit of an odd use case so the answers might not be too obvious. From your replies, I gather the best chance is to look for a monitor specifically with a USB-C video ...
  • Created discussion thread Seeking advice on a small monitor
    Greetings all.  I know the DPR crowd are experts in monitors so this is a good audience.  I'm helping my wife with some online teaching ideas and a new monitor is on her needs list.  She's giving ...
  • Paul, if you let us know which Mac you're migrating from, we can look up exactly what kind of connectivity it has. I also think you'll want to buy a new and inexpensive backup drive for Time ...
  • Paul, what kind of drive are you using to make Time Machine backups on the old Mac?  There should be a way to use that with Migration Assistant on the new Mac.
  • Have you tried On1 Photo RAW 2020 ? I'm a very new user but I haven't run into any problems with their DAM functionality. I did a trial of the 2019 version and didn't like that one all that much. ...
