    Apple External SSD failure

    Only had a Mac for a year and still have Windows PC for work, and the wife has hers for her work too. I have a Crucial X8 SSD, formatted as ExFat (as I use Windows too). Was working all OK, and then it was not. Tried various Mac repair type work, but to no avail. Plugged it into Windows PC and...

    Advice Wanted MacBook for web testing recommendations?

    I'm back to considering picking up a cheap MacBook for testing. Costco has the 13.3" MacBook Air (M1 / 8GB / 256GB) on sale for $749. I believe it's the 2020 model. Thoughts on it versus going bigger with the 15" versions? Are the keyboards on both the 13" & 15" physically the same size or...

    Apple A kind request to Apple M1 8GB device users

    Hello. I would kindly request anyone who has an Apple product with M1 8GB RAM (iMac 2021, Mac Mini, MacBook Air 2020) and access to Adobe Lightroom to test RAM usage for editing 42 MP files. I can provide the RAW files if needed, I just need to know if the device can handle extensive editing...

    Advice Wanted Looking for a new Apple computer

    First off, I use Apple computers, so any suggestions for a Windows box is unnecessary. At the moment I use a late 2014 iMac 27 inch with 32 gb RAM, mainly for photo processing (Photoshop, DXO Photolab, NeoFinder, ...). This machine is showing its age mainly due to evolving software that needs...

    My Apple Watch is the Speaker for the Dead (iPhone)

    I woke up Saturday and my iPhone 12 was unresponsive, i.e., the display would not come on. The odd part was that it was clearly still on and active. When I plugged it in I got the "charging" sound. The weirdest thing was that my watch was clearly still talking to the phone. All the info...

    Apple IOS is so frustrating!

    So, a few weeks ago I bought my first ever apple product, an ipad mini. Love the photography related apps. But most everything else is a frustrating nightmare! The filemanagment for even something like an epub makes me want to pull my hair out. How is this so popular? Thought maybe it could do...

    Apple Lightroom Classic updated to support Silicon Macs

    I just wondered few days ago how long can it take for Adobe to start supporting Silicon M1 Macs with Lightroom Classic. Well, the update is now ongoing on the background 😎 EDIT: And the new Universal Lightroom Classic feels snappy on M1 Mac mini with just 16GB memory. (And Big Sur 11.4 MacOS)

    Apple MacOS: Lyn App

    This may be of interest to some Mac users, especially those of us on older hardware. I bought a licence for the Lyn app a few years ago but never really gave it serious consideration. How foolish of me. Its lightweight, and it does both image management and basic editing. It will also send...

    Smartphone FIMO PAN-X/Tri-X 400 Images From My Walk Today - Pano

    A new film simulation dropped a little bit ago for the FIMO camera app in the App Store. It pay homage to a PAN-X camera loaded with Tri-X 400 film. I kinda like it, and played with it a bit today during my 3.5 mile walk through the woods at lunch today. Thought I would share: 1 2 3 4 5

    Apple trying to buy Sony Pictures

    Who cares, right? It did make me wonder, however, what could happen if Apple acquired an imaging division and let them use Apple's computational photography expertise. It probably won't happen, but I still wonder what such a product would be like, e.g., a fixed zoom large sensor camera with...

    If you're still using Apple's Aperture on your MacOS machines, even though Apple discontinued updating it back in 2014, you'll be facing an upgrade decision. MacOS Mojave will be the last version of the OS that will support running Aperture "for technical reasons". Apple's suggestion is to...
