CCATP #439 Antonio Rosario on Photo Processing

Antonio Rosario of the Switch to Manual Podcast at switchtomanual.com/… joins us again to answer some of my photo processing questions. He tries to explain to me the difference between a filter and an adjustment in programs like Photoshop and Affinity Photo (and I think he succeeds), we talk about how to avoid falling into the pitfall of having your camera set up all wrong from a previous shoot, and what a light meter is and why you might want to use one. You can find Antonio on Twitter, Flickr, Google Plus and Instagram as @amrosario and on Facebook at facebook.com/Switch2Manual.

CCATP #437 Devin King on Photography

In this week’s episode of Chit Chat Across the Pond, we’re joined by Devin King, the first VP and Program Director for SMOG, the Southern California Macintosh Owners | Users Group (Ocmug.org). He’s a photographer who converted from a giant Canon DSLR to carrying two mirrorless cameras, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the Fuji X-T1.

We talk about what drove him to abandon the DSLR form factor and go to mirrorless cameras, and why he bought two of them, and the differences between them. We talk about applications for processing photos from Apple Photos to Lightroom and a whole lot of other editors:

CCATP #435 How to Secure Your Internet of Things

Network showing 3 routers as describedBart Busschots did a talk for the Connecticut Macintosh Connection (aka CTMac) at ctmac.org a few weeks ago where he explained how the Internet of Things can be a concern for the security of your home network. Of course he didn’t stop there, he sent on to explain how for a fairly small amount of money, you can keep yourself secure.

Bart and I decided this would make a terrific topic for Chit Chat Across the Pond. He produced a 67 chart Keynote that we do NOT go through in its entirety, in fact we skip the middle 40 or so pages, but they’re there if you have in depth questions about how anything he discusses.

CCATP #433 I Push Hard on Greg Scown from Smile About TextExpander 6

There’s been a lot of consternation on the Internet this week about the announcements by Smile with their new TextExpander 6 product at textexpander.com. I invited Smile founder Greg Scown onto the show to explain their thinking and to allow me to ask him some tough questions. It was hard for me to do because TextExpander is a beloved product and the company Smile has shown themselves over the many years to care deeply about their customers. In fact, when I recently surveyed listeners about the first five apps they add to a new Mac, TextExpander was in the top three. It’s important to note that Smile is not an advertiser for the NosillaCast.
