Applications :: Separating A Picture From Its Background?

May 13, 2010

My wife is looking to add the attached picture to the bottom of a wedding shower invitation, but the paper is lavender. How do I move the actual image to a blank canvas.

Right now, a white square is showing up around the image. Would I use something like Photoshop?

OS X :: Desktop Background Picture Keeps Reverting To An Old Picture From Months Ago?

Feb 22, 2009

As stated in title, the desktop picture will randomly revert to a picture I had up there months ago, usually when I run the battery all the way down on my unibody MB, but also when I change display settings when i plug into an external monitor.

Do I just need just reset the PRAM or is there something else I'm missing.

BTW, I have searched and I know I only have a few posts...

OS X :: Background Picture Resets

Jan 2, 2010

I like putting different background pictures on my various folders, but I cant get the Mac OS X HD background to stick. My user folder sticks around after logout, but the Mac OS X one reverts to what I have set as defaults.

I'm the only user (therefore administrator as well), so I don't see what the problem is.

MacBook Pro :: Diagnose 12" PB G4 - Background Picture?

Nov 18, 2009

I need your expertise in figuring out whether my 12" PB G4 is worth salvaging. I tripped over the cord a few nights ago and it came crashing to the ground, landing open in a V. I was sure the screen's hinge would be damaged, but it wasn't, and the screen appears to be a little blurry in the middle, but avoided catastrophic damage. Here's what happens, though. When I turn it on, it loads, though it takes 20 mins to get up and running. Then it loads my background picture, but nothing on my desktop. And the toolbar at the bottom shows up, but if you click an icon, the computer does the spinning wheel for about 5 mins and then the spinning wheel disappears and you're still just looking at the background picture.I'm really upset at the prospect of having lost all of my files. At the same time, this computer is 4+ years old, so it seems silly to spend $500 on getting it fixed. Does anyone recognize what might be wrong here -- is it something I might be able to repair on my own? Or that could be done cheaply at a repair shop? Or is this poor laptop finally d-e-a-d ?

Changing Lion OS X Finder Background To Picture

Apr 14, 2012

I downloaded a picture of the black Apple Linen texture online.I wanted to change the background of the finder. The picture is 1920x1080 so I figured the size would be fine I have the 21.5" iMac.But when I change to the picture it doesn't fill the page, but fills the top left of the page. The area of the picture doesn't change when I change the size of my Finder.I also downloaded a picture of size 128x128 The picture didn't stretch, it just took the size in the top left of my finder screen.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change Desktop Background Picture?

Jul 5, 2012

I have Lion I have Aperture 3.   

I set the desktop background picture to photos on Aperture through right mouse clicking to "change destop background".

All the photos fhrough Aperture are present. I click the photo and it changes. I also use the screen saver using aperture photos. All of these photos are on an external drive and has been working flawlessly with Lion on my older imac.

Last week I bought a new imac with Lion.  Everything is working the same as above except for when I shut down the imac. When I boot it back up, the mac supplied image of the milky way appears and the photo I had on the desktop prior to shutting down has been replaced by this. 

The external is mounted and the screen saver after 5 minutes will show my Aperture is just the desktop photo that has been replaced..

OS X :: ITunes - Separating Audio From Video

May 3, 2009

iTunes has the Rod Stewart video of the song Ooh La La. I would buy it if I could somehow extract the audio to put in my iTunes library. I don't know why iTunes doesn't sell the audio only version of this song, but I would like the audio only, even if I had to buy the video. Can I separate the video/audio of this for iTunes?

Macbook Pro Screen Is Separating From Casing

Jun 5, 2012

my 2009 macbook pro screen is signficantly seperated from the casing which is now starting to affect the laptops performance.Apple refuse to fix it as its older than 1 year and they say its been caused by me dropping it? Its never been dropped and lives in two cases! WHO DROPS A 2K LAPTOP WITHOUT REALISING?Apple genius was very rude when I took it to ask for some help, being a student I cant afford the repair quote they gave me. I don't see how a global company like apple just refuse to acknowledge how this is affecting not just a few isolated cases, but hundreds.According to the sale of goods act "If the retailer or manufacturer’s warranty has run out, the shop is often quick to say there is nothing they can do before attempting to sell you an extended warranty. This is misleading. If you buy something which should last 7 years but breaks down after a year and a day, you can still claim it was of poor quality in reference to the durability aspect."

Mac Pro :: Case Structure Surrounding Screen As Popping Off Or Separating From LCD Housing

Jun 28, 2006

On the macbook "Users report the case structure surrounding the screen as popping off or seperating from the LCD housing." I have had that problem as reported by appledeffects wiki. It isnt a huge deal. It is just a little loose and not completely popped off like that quote says. Have any other Macbook owners had that issue? If so what have you done to fix it? I have ran coreduotemp and it runs hot but no hotter than the normal macbook user and that is where it would seem like the problem would come from. Extreme heat and loosening of the glue I'm guessing. I don't know what to do and if this looseness is going to cause problems in the future for my otherwise wonderful machine I would like to know what I can do to fix this or what should be done.

Software :: Change Login Background / Reset The Original Background?

Jul 7, 2009

I have a Macbook Pro and I have been recently changing around my backgrounds including my login background. However, when I changed my background via command in the terminal by switching the defaultdesktop.jpg with another picture in the CoreServices folder, My picture does not show up on the login screen instead it is just a plain blue screen. Is there anyway to restore the original login background settings?because I actually found a program "loginox" that easily changes the login picture however, it will not open because it says I have changed the original background photo.

What happens is that while it is opening, at some point it will come to the front and interrupt my session in Safari.

Applications :: App That Will Run In The Background Of My MacBook Pro?

Jul 31, 2010

I was wondering if there is an app (willing to pay) that will run in the background of my MacBook Pro and store all the log (when the computer is turned on, what app is launched, what time when that action take on)

Maybe something that will take a snap shot of my screen every XX second and keep record of what key is pressed.

It would be great if that application has password protect so only I can access it.

I know that it might not be a good thing to do this, so please feel free to PM me.

I'm seeing this weird Safari bug where when I "Open in new background tab" on a link, the new tab opens, but its graphic shows that it is selected. See screenshot attached. Anyone else experiencing this? The only thing I can think of that I did to my system is I installed SIMBL and GreaseKit, but I have since uninstalled them both, but the problem still persists. I'm on 10.6.2, Safari 4.0.4.

Applications :: Can 3rd Party Apps Be Run In Background

May 8, 2010

I have an app called Teamviewer for both my iPhone and my iMac & I want to be able to have it running in the background of my iMac all the time so I can connect to it from my iPhone anytime I want. Otherwise I have to open the program to let it get connected to the web. I'd like for it to always be on without any notification of it being on like dock or taskbar menu. Here is what it looks like when it is up and running. The little grey window in the upper right corner is semi transparent when your mouse is not on it. I do have dock dodger installed so the app icon is not docked but I want both of the windows seen to be able to be gone and it still remain connected. Is this possible?
