I like to use Faces versus Names because I seem to be able to crank through it much quicker.
1) I click a project name that has not already had faces assigned
2) I click the faces icon. Then I see the "main" part of the screen with the Faces instructions, and the section under that has the faces that need to be named. So I start naming them. There are 100s in this project.
3) Then I come across a face I only "kind of" recognize. I don't know if they are in the background in a crowd, of the focus of the photo. I need to understand the images composition so I can skip them or figure out their name. I would like to quickly just get a peek at the whole photo.
4) So I switch to the Viewer and it takes me to the first photo in that project. That's no good.
5) When I switch back to Face I also have to scroll to get back to that face.
Is there a better way to quickly see the whole photo without breaking up my workflow?
After installing the latest version of Photoshop 2014 on my late 2013 Mac Pro my images are showing horizontal banding when editing a layer mask. Adobe said this is the fault of the GPU (Mine: two AMD FirePro D500) and that I should post it here, for Apple to read.
For about a week i'm having some problems with my mac pro.(osx 10.6.8 / 2.66 ghz quad-core intel xeon / 6GB 1066MHZ DDR3 / Nvidia Geforce GT 120) Sometimes, when working in photoshop, the image i work on becomes black or grey so i can't see anymore what i'm working on. Other times one of my screens (I work on two screens) seems to freeze... when i start clicking around on that screen the screen gets 'messed up'. As you can see in the attached image (screenprint of my mail).The same thing now also happens with vimeo or youtube videos. And sometimes my browser even gets completely black.
Does anyone know if there is any basic photo software available free for mac? Although if there was something decent I wouldn't mind paying a little for it. All I need to do is crop one part of a photo and put it onto another one. Ive heard of something called GIMP but it says I need this thing off the mac osx disk before I can install it, which is at home (I am at uni).
I am wondering whether the memory use I see is common to the Mac OS X - touted as the graphics pros choice - it's seems anything but to me. I have a mid 2010 iMac 27" 3.2 GHz Intel Core i312 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 (just upgraded in the hope that it would improve the problem - it didn't)ATI Radeon HD 5670 512 MBMac OS X Lion 10.7.4 That spec should be more than ample. No. Pixelmator uses up to 5GB yes - GB) just opening the app. If I dare to open an actual image - let's say a 120mb jpg for editing - the memory usage is even higher - usually resulting in the image not opening at all. GIMP is similar, but not as extreme - opening the file uses around 2GB. Nevertheless, both of the above seem to me to be examples of excessive memory usage. Certainly, my machine slows to a crawl when doing anything related to images?

Does anyone know where I can download a free image editing program that shows the pixel values changing as the image is being cropped? The best basic program that does this is Microsoft Picture Manager, so I basically need something like this for the Mac.
screen resolution of the MBP 13" is too small to do video/image editing with tools like the iLife suite, Final Cut Express, Photoshop..? And for using developers' tools like XCode? I would use it in my freetime and not for work.. It would be my first MBP and I'm using a 15" laptop with 1680x1050 resolution, so I would loose a lot of pixels, but I don't want to spend so much on a 15"/17" MBP since I do not think they've yet entered the next level Steve Jobs was talking about.. So I would buy a 13" just because I'd really like to jump in the Mac world , and maybe I'll sell it next year when (I hope) there will be much more innovation (maybe new design
Safari used to let me drag an image from a webpage to the finder and have the dragged file be saved as an actual image but now all that's saved is a webloc file. I want the image saved, not a reference to the image's URL - do I now have to always use "save as" to save it?
I can understand Safari creating a webloc file if I dragged the site icon from the location bar to the finder, but to make the default behavior for dragging things that are parts of a page (not the page itself) as webloc files seems like a HUGE step backwards for usability.
Does anyone know if there's, say, a key to hold when dragging to avoid saving a webloc file or a defaults command or something to make Safari revert back to sane draging behavior?
One software says I cannot upload an image because the image or the container folder does not have permission. Indeed there is one "unknown" in permissions, that I cannot get to a read write no matter how hard I try -- both on the folder, the desktop, and the file (this is all on my laptop) I've done a repair permission.
When a user copies an image from a browser into PowerPoint 2011 he gets text of a link back to the image, not the image itself. But if he copies from a browser into Word he gets the image, and can then copy the image from Word to PowerPoint. Same results with both Firefox and Safari. Behavior is new so I assume it relates to recent software updates but user does not recall accepting any.
I recently right clicked a picture to set it as my desktop picture but didn't have the foresight to save the picture in case I wanted to change it later. I still have the picture up but I cannot find where the picture is stored so I can save it for later. I checked HD/Library/desktop pictures but no luck. Does anyone know where these pictures are saved?
I have just purchased the 11.6" MacBook Air and noticed the addition of the right click button at the bottom of the trackpad.
When I am in Firefox and am using an external mouse, I frequently use middle click to open a link in a new tab, followed by the use of an auxiliary button on the mouse, programmed with the keystroke "control tab" and another with "control shift tab" to switch back and forth quickly between multiple tabs.
My Questions: Is there any way to "remap" the right click key at the bottom of the MBA's trackpad and assign it to "middle click" when I am in Firefox, Safari, or Chrome (or just Firefox)? I am aware of "command + click" but am looking for something even faster.
Also, is there such thing as a trackpad gesture (or a way to program one) or any other quicker way of advancing forward though tabs besides the keystroke, "control tab"?
I'm in terrible, horrible situation about Command+Space shourtcut on my snow leopard system. I have to remove or change that shortcut but I could not any solution or way to do that. How can I remove r change that shortcut? or is it possible to disable or totally remove quick look tool from system (off course I don't know in that case that shortcut can be released).
I am new to Apple and have always used windows in the past. I always found it easy to right click and copy and paste in windows, but find it very hard with my mac. I try to highlight words that I want to copy and find in hard to bring up the copy sign. What is the quickest way to C and P on the mac

I've got 10.6 and iWork 08. Someone emailed me a Numbers 09 document which simply would not open, be it in iWork, Preview or anything else I tried. But I can see it in Quicklook. So the computer DOES understand the document, so is Apple just crippling everything else to persuade me to buy iWork 09 (which I can't see have any real improvements over 08)?
a few days ago, (after reseting my computer with time machine) my Quick Look stoped working. all that hapens when i hit the space bar (or any other way of opinging quicklook) is the big grey box with nothing in it. I can still see the prevews of the items with coverflow.
When i checked console i got this message every time i trie to open a file " Finder: [QL] Display bundle <QLGenericDisplayBundle: 0x11638e120> did not return a layer although it was required to because it did not return a view either."
I need to be able to change my IP address to watch my TV show on megavideo.. they ask me to wait 58 minutes every time I finish an episode of heroes. Is there a quick command I can just type in the terminal or another simple trick I can use?
