Applications :: Suggestions For (very) Basic Free Photo Editors?

Feb 16, 2010

I have been looking around the forums but came up empty handed. I was wondering what good free photoshop(like) programs there are. All I literally want to be able to do is get two separate photos and put them side by side and export them as one photo. Basically I want to make a wallpaper. I've heard about GIMP but is that what I want? Is there a more basic photo editor?

Applications :: Free ID3 Editors On Mac - Not Itunes

Apr 21, 2009

I recently-ish converted to the Mac from Windows, and with it my MP3 collection migrated too. Unfortunately I cannot find a decent free MP3 ID3 (metadata tag) editor to replace MP3 Book Helper [URL] on Windows. Itunes is rather cumbersome as information needs to be entered in manually and individually. Does anybody know any good ID3 editors for the Mac?

Applications :: Free Text Editors - Smultron Alternatives

Oct 5, 2009

As I was trying to set up my brand new 13-inch MBP with my favorites application, I realized that Smultron will no longer be in development. There fore i looking for a replacement, that is a free text editor. I have downloaded TextWrangler and I was wondering if you knew other good software. Basically i am doing web design and at work I often need raw text without any rich edition. I also like the tab navigation. Smultron was good because it only did what I needed.

Applications :: Basic FREE Alternative To Photoshop

Jan 25, 2010

I find myself occasionally wanting to edit images, splice 2 or more images together, or just do some real basic photo editing and cant justify the cost of photoshop since I will NEVER use it to even 15% of its potential. What is a good (preferably free but under $25 is okay) app for osx that I can download?

Software :: Looking For A Reasonable Basic Photo Editor

Feb 29, 2008

Okay, I'm still within' my first month of mac ownership, and one of my few disappointments has been iPhoto. I used to use my digital camera's included software(ACDSee) for all my photo editing needs, but the software wasn't mac compatible.

I have found iPhoto to be completely useless for anything other than basic photo storage. All I'm looking to do is resize photos(by pixel) for message board avatars or uploading. Also to resize photos(by inch or mm) for printing. iPhoto to my knowledge doesn't let me do either of these in any sort of simple manner.

So what I'm looking for is a basic photo editor for my mac. I've read about iView and Aperture, but both of these seem like extreme overkill in both features and price for what I want to do with my photos.

So what are my options at a reasonable price? Reasonable being anywhere from free-$70 or so.

OS X :: Suggestions Regarding The Applications For My Macbook?

Jul 1, 2010

I am a newbie to Macs. Wanted to know whether or not do we need to install a separate security software for this system (Antivirus, Internet Security, etc)

Some good image editors (free)

And an alternative to Corel Draw Suite on Mac.

A free or paid download manager like IDM for windows.

Any must haves for macs (as are for windows)

Now my transition from the PC to the Mac has made my life really peaceful which was not the case when I used Windows with all the updates, pop ups, antivirus and security management, updation, and system maintenance.

Therefore to make it a bit messy i started googling around for applications and stuff which I would never actually require but would install and tinker around with. I was really confused with the various sources available. Kindly mention a few reliable and updated sources and forums where I could post my Mac specific queries and issues (if there are any) like installing Windows in conjunction with OS X etc.

Applications :: Safari - Basic Links Not Working?

Jan 1, 2011

Some semi-Flash-based links do not work in Safari(I'm using 5.0.3) causing me to switch to...pretty much any other browser like Chrome when needed. For example, when playing Whirled by Three Rings, when trying to navigate the non-Flash menus, equipping/"Wearing" avatars or pets and furniture and stuff do not work.

Applications :: Basic Trimming Of Sound MP3 Files

Dec 5, 2009

I need a basic app (not some amazingly expensive app with a million functions) that lets me edit an .MP3 file and cut out part of the middle, the ends, and export it. Quicktime X would be perfect, but you can't edit out the middle.

Mac Mini :: I5 2.3 Ghz 2RAM Running Slowly With Basic Applications

May 27, 2012

My Mac Mini is running very slowly, everything I do is running slowly from google chrome to destop functions. My internet lags and I can hear the processor working chirping away all thwe time. I have tried to defrag and even turned off the wifi to see if it was internet related. Even textedit and preview drag and when they do open the window opens slowly.

I am getting apple's router and replacing my belkin to be on a secure network.

IMac :: What Do The New Graphics Mean For Video Editors

Jul 27, 2010

I started a thread a long time ago on using the iMac as a video editing machine, and the general consensus was that the only thing holding back the iMac from being an absolutely fantastic editing station was the graphics.

Now here's a question for the pros: now that the graphics have been updated for the 27inch (from Radeon HD 4850 to 5750) are some of these problems solved?

I'm planning on doing a lot of work in Avid, Final Cut, and Pro Tools, and I want to get to know After Effects well.

Will 8GB of Ram be enough for me?

Most of my editing will be off of footage from my 5D Mark ii.

Software :: GPU Powered AVCHD Video Editors / Players?

Sep 18, 2009

I have an iMac with the Radeon 2600 graphics (I think it's about a year old). I'm looking for a video editing package (or at minimum playback package) that uses video processing to decode the AVCHD files (.mts in my case). I've demo'd a couple packages which I was told did not use GPU support and of course they brought my machine to a standstill and the video clips as well. I realize I can translate them to MP4 or something instead but I then have to manage the original clips vs the outputs. I'd at least like to have something that catalogs the files and keeps meta-data so they're organized since my Canon camcorder seems to reuse file names. realize Adobe's package has native editing but even on that one, I'm not sure it uses the GPU. I believe the 2600 has AVCHD support. I think it says AVC H.264 which I think is what I'd need assuming there existed such a package.

OS X :: Finding Suggestions For Improving A G4 AGP

Nov 7, 2010

First time user of the forum. About a year or two ago, I acquired an older Mac G4 AGP from someone who said it was "broke" and was going to recycle it. Turns out the OS just needed to be re-installed, so she is up and running. I initially installed Leopard, but it didn't run as well as I would've liked, so I put Tiger on it (running much better). After that, I maxed out the memory @ 2GB(4 x 512MB PC133). Then I installed a 7200RPM HD to replace the slower drive. I also installed a DVD R/RW and maxed the processor to a 1.8GHz single core. Right now, I'm looking to bump up the video card. It's my understanding that the 9800 is best card for this system, but I'm not looking to spend that much. I will only be using this system to stream music from Grooveshark and Pandora, so it needs to run Flash content well. Currently, it has the ATI Rage 128 Pro with 16MB VRAM, which is next to nothing. Like I said, I don't need a crazy card, but I'm not sure the difference between one 64MB card and another, or should I go up to 128MB.

MacBook Pro :: Suggestions For SSD Drives?

Jul 23, 2010

I have a 2010 MBP with all the trimmings except for a SSD drive. I've been looking at some options but can't seem to figure out what a good brand is since I've never owned/used a SSD before and, therefore, don't know what a good vs crappy brand is. Can anyone recommend a good SSD brand? Also, are there any limitations/restrictions within Mac OS X as far as as size in concerned? So, for example, if I were to get a 1TB SSD drive (I wish) would OS X not recognize it due to its size or is this a non issue?

Hardware :: Suggestions On Replacement Of SuperDrive?

Feb 10, 2006

I have a iMac 2GHZ PowerPC G5 and the SuperDrive has gone out for the second time and it is now out of the 90-day warranty. The original equipment is the MATSHITADVD-R UJ-845, but it seems to have been made in China by slave labor and gives more problems than any other single component of the iMac. Do you have any suggestions or insights about how to deal with this and/or replace it? Do you have any inside knowledge about updates to the current replacement hardware or anything like that? It's not that I don't want to take the iMac down to the Apple Store for the fix, it is more an issue of dependability and component longevity. My PC gaming rig is three years old and the CD/DVD-ROM has given no problems whatsoever while the iMac is less than a year old and has had the same component go out twice. (Background on the machine -- Machine Name: iMac G5, Machine Model: PowerMac8,2, CPU Type: PowerPC G5 (3.0), Number Of CPUs:1, CPU Speed: 2 GHz, L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB, Memory: 1 GB, Bus Speed:667 MHz, ATA Bus: MATSHITADVD-R UJ-845, Model: MATSHITADVD-R UJ-845, Revision: DBN9, Detachable Drive: No)

MacBook Air :: External Projector Suggestions For AIR?

Aug 28, 2008

I am looking for some suggestions for a projector that will run, and hook up smoothly on the Air. I don't need top of the line, but maybe around $700.00 is in the budget so far. I want to be able to show keynote presentations, website demos, and maybe some shorter video clips as well.

PS: I did some digging and wondered if the Optoma EP7150 was a good bet. The street price is around 800.00 (but I found a few that were around 500), and there is a newer model out now so the price should be dipping). 2.8 lbs, 2500:1 contrast ratio, 2,000 lumens... and XGA output. Anyone have any experience with this one?

MacBook Pro :: Briefcase Suggestions For 15.4inch

Feb 3, 2010

I recently bought a 15.4� MacBook Pro and am looking for a smart briefcase for my machine. I travel on work frequently and most of my trips are overnight. I would ideally like something that can be expanded, if necessary, to accommodate a pair of clothes. Also, I want to spend minimum time at airport security and want my briefcase to be TSA checkpoint friendly guidelines compliant. Needless to say, it should have lots of pockets to organize my files, power cord, USB drive, business cards, headphones, etc. Does anyone know of a good quality luggage manufacturer that makes such expandable briefs? I don�t mind spending money for a high quality product and a customer service to match.

MacBook Pro :: Suggestions For 500GB Internal HDD?

Jul 14, 2010

Like the title says, what are your guy's suggestions for 500GB Internal HDD?
I don't mind having 5,400 or 7,200rpm and the cache size (16MB would be enough for me).
I read from other people's posts that some HDDs have slower boot time, more power consumption, drive failure, not booting, etc etc.

What is the perfect internal HDD 500GB for Mac? The only one I know is WD Blue Scorpio [URL] but I don't know if it's available around where I live.I am planning to partition 400GB for Mac & 100GB for Windows XP.

I am a freelance video producer and I am trying to take video screen shots for a tutorial. However, when I begin typing anything in for a URL, Safari lists not only frequent sites I visit, but also my current history. I have tried using "private browsing" but it still continues to list everything I've been to once I type "www", which doesn't make any sense.Is there any option to disable it, or do I have to back to using Chrome?
