Sep 13, 2010

If I need training in Dreamweaver and I use a Mac but my trainer uses a PC are there major differences that I should be aware of?

Software :: Dreamweaver CS3 Versus Freeway 5.0?

Mar 3, 2008

I'm finally looking to move from GoLive to something more modern and ready for the future.
I got RapidWeaver as part of MacHeist, but I find it a bit too restrictive. I'm a WYSIWYG kind of guy.

Adobe, in their infinite wisdom, does not allow for an upgrade from their old web development program to their new one. This means I'll have to pay the full $399. for Dreamweaver if I decide to go that route.

I'm intrigued with the news about Softpress' new version of Freeway, which is out this month. Anybody here have experience with this product?

I'm less than enamoured with SoftPress' own site, which is text-heavy and lacks screenshots and clean design. Not a great advertisement for the software itself.

However, the Pro version is half the price of Dreamweaver and seems to have a lot of the core functionality.
Being an InDesign user, their appeal to designers who want to engage in web design is compelling.

Can anybody here vouch for this approach? Is there any good reason to pay double the cost for Dreamweaver?

Hardware :: Dell 2407WFP A04 Versus Dell G2410 Versus Dell 2209WA Versus Samsung F2380

Nov 2, 2009

I'm looking for a new monitor to go with my MBP, and I'm stuck trying to choose between the ones listed above.

The 2407WFP is a couple of years old now I guess, but it's the rev A04 version, which supposedly fixed the (few) problems with what was otherwise meant to be a great screen. It's an sPVA screen.

I've heard good reviews of the G2410, with its LED backlighting. It's still a TN panel and I hear so much bad stuff about them.

The 2209WA is an eIPS panel which I like the sound of, but it's smaller and lower resolution.

The F2380 is a cPVA panel, the image quality looks better but I've heard bad things about blacks on this panel.

Hardware :: Marware Versus ISkin Versus Moshi Keyboard Covers

Jan 5, 2011

I'm pretty satisfied with the Marware cover, although it can be a little frustrating when typing quickly..I'm wondering if I should go back, return the Marware cover and pick up the iSkin.

So, for those of you that have any of these in comparing..which do you think is the best?

And yes, I did search and am aware threads like this exist..but I couldn't find any comparing all three, only iSkin vs. Moshi.

Hardware :: Eyetv 250 Versus TVMax Versus Blackmagic Video Recorder?

Apr 30, 2008

I'm trying to decide which product to buy and I was hoping for some advice.

First and foremost I want a device so that I may transfer my VHS tapes to DVD.

Live TV recording is secondary but for the price, I'd like to find the device that suits me best so I can continue to use it after i've transferred all my VHS.

Here are my concerns:

1) I'm going to be moving from the US to Ireland in a couple of months (not sure for how long, could be years+) Obviously there's the whole NTSC vs. PAL, ATSC vs. DVB.

I know with EyeTV 250 it's either or, any ideas if buying some sort of converter is an option (prices, quality)? If I bought just a PAL one, would I still be able to convert VHS or would it be completely unusable in the US?

2) I'd like some sort of HD/Digital abilities. From what I can tell TVMax is analog only and Blackmagic may also be but I can't find more specs on that.

Does this mean they'll be useless once the US undergoes the conversion?

So as of now I'm leaning towards EyeTV 250 but the question are there any forseeable problems with using a PAL to NTSC converter or using a PAL EyeTV in the US just to convert VHS.

PowerPC :: Older G5 Versus IMac Versus MacBook Pro For Work

Oct 25, 2007

So I have a 1.8ghz dual G5 with 3gb of ram for work. I mainly work in Adobe CS and do a far amount of Photoshop work. At any given time I may have all of Adobe CS plus Office and a few other apps running -- and a gazillion fonts. Went to the store and saw the new 24" iMac. How would a new iMac compare to my late '04 1.8DP G5? On that same note, how would a new MacBook Pro compare to the above?

Hardware :: Dell G2410 Versus Samsung F2380 Versus Other...

Oct 25, 2009

I am planning on purchasing a new display for use (currently) with my imac. I am completely torn between these two models, and cannot make a decision. Any thoughts? I like the Dell because it is LED backlit, thus good blacks and little to no backlight bleed. But I like the Samsung because of the (supposedly better panel and (supposedly) better color reproduction. I like the simplistic look of both of them (though they could look a little better ) so I'm not sure which one to buy.

Mac Pro :: 6GB Versus 8GB Triple Versus Dual Channels/PS4 Tests

Jun 30, 2009

I ran some tests on my 2009 Quad Nehalem to try and determine what was up with the triple Vs dual memory "brouhaha".

I posted the results as a new thread because I think it will be useful information for a lot of quad owners, but it was originally going to be a reply to this thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=735845

Here we go. Tesselator suggested 3 tests that could show the differences in speed between triple and dual channel bandwidth.


As one idea I would maybe try creating a few very large images (16-bit, blank white, blank black, gradient fill) and then duplicating and deleting that layer repeatedly a few hundred times.

So I did them, 10 times each. I could have gone on, but the results were very very stable after the first 2 attempts.

Set-up: a 40Mpx, 16bit image (8000*5000). First test it was simply filled white; second test: black; and third test a black to white gradient. I added a fourth test, using a real (photo) 12Mpx RAW image from my Nikon D300.

I created (took a while!) an action with 350 repetitions of "duplicate layer" and "delete layer", followed by a red fill to let me know the action was done. The same action was used in all four tests.

The computer was restarted before each of the four tests, which may explain the irregularities on the first 1-2 attempts. Nothing else but PS4 was launched.

The results are interesting:

We can clearly see that the simple white and black fills show a speed difference of around 10%.

We can also clearly see that this difference disappears when a more complex image is used. The use of more complex images represents a much more realistical use of PS.

To make things even more realistic, I also tested RetouchActions's speed test on my own 12Mpx image. I use nearly all of the operations of that action on a daily basis, so it's a lot more representative of the work I do on PS.

Here are the results:

The results are clear: 11% increase in performance using 8GB of ram (Vs 6GB) when working on a 12Mpx image.

Added info: number of page-outs after running the 10 test series (after about 45 minutes of intense PS work):
-17K when using 6GB (1.7K page-out avg).
-10K when using 8GB (1K page-out avg).

For me the results are definitive: unless I plan on working only with full black or full white images (not even black and white!), having 8GB is better, even when working on smallish 12Mpx files. I imagine the differences would have been even greater using bigger file sizes of actual complex images.

What would now be interesting: someone with a 2009MP Octo doing the same tests at 12GB and 16GB.

Software :: Using Dreamweaver 8 To CS3?

Dec 27, 2007

I do some website work on the side (my own site, weddings, and a few non-profits) never really for money, just for service in kinc or fun. I currently use 8, and have an opportuinity to pick up a super cheap copy of CS3 from a friend who is migrating back to Windows.

Is it worth $100? What are the new features. I was lead to believe it makes CSS layouts extremely managable and had some cool new stuff.

Mac Pro :: Using Dreamweaver Pinwheeling...

Jun 8, 2009

I'm currently using a Mac Pro 2.66 with 2 gigs of ram.

Every program I run works fine...I use parallels and remote connect to a pc all the time. No problems

When I open Dreamweaver to do simple edits and work I get a pinwheel that wont go away. Must force quit.

The rest of CS3 works just fine, I use photoshop and illustrator and have no trouble at all. Anyone have any guesses on what could be wrong?

IMac :: 24 2.66 Versus 2.93 / Gt130 Versus 4850

Aug 17, 2009

Two short questions on which I really need an answer. This academic year, I'll be writing a lot of papers, but most specifically, I am forced to use SPSS (statistical software package for social sciences).

Will I really need the 2.93 over the 2.66 and notice the improvement?

Same goes for the gfx. I like full-hd 1080, I'll be in InDesign, and use Logic Pro. Will I need "slash" notice the 4850 over the gt130?

Also, are the "hang-ups" with the 4850 truly fixed and does it indeed run a lot hotter (inc. really that more noise) than the gt130?

Applications :: Dreamweaver CS3 Asking For CS4 Disc?

Jan 30, 2009

So I just got Dreamweaver CS3 in the mail today and tried to install it. I bought it from a retailer online because I learned on CS3 and didn't want to have to learn a half-new interface. It was also A LOT cheaper.

So the problem is, I get 1/3 way through the install and Setup ejects the disc. A message pops up saying I need to insert Dreamweaver CS4 disc. It has an option to Cancel or Ok. I hit Ok and the message just pops back up. I hit Cancel and I message pops up saying the user terminated install by request. It then list that it successfully installed the Shared something and failed to install Dreamweaver CS3 and a bunch of other apps that came with it like how Photoshop comes with Bridge, Device Central, etc. I think this is what's causing the problem because most of these extra apps are CS4, but I don't know how to not install these things. I do want them installed, I think, but they are causing this problem, I think.

Software :: Using Dreamweaver CS4 FTP Connection?

Dec 17, 2008

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.5 on a Macbook Pro Core Duo, 2 meg RAM.

Dreamweaver CS4 installed just fine, and starts up just fine, linking to the web site home folder on my computer just fine. Problem is when I attempt to connect to Host I get the following message:

An FTP error occurred - cannot make connection to host. Dreamweaver cannot connect to host "ftp-dom.earthlink.net". This may be due to one or more of the following reasons:...

I've made all the adjustments and corrections suggested thereafter in the error window, but to no avail. I've even did a clean install of the software, and have also did a complete wipe of my hard drive and reloaded all system software and application software from scratch, and still the same problem. The Adobe site's information and links to forums dealing with this problem have been no help whatsoever.

My connection is through a DSL protocol, both hard wired (via Ethernet) and wireless, depending on where I'm located. Have no problems with other internet related connections with other software that accesses the internet.

My Dreamweaver 8 application, on the same computer, loads up just fine and connects to the host just fine with no FTP errors whatsoever to which I'm able to do any updates, work on the site, etc, with no problem, whether I'm connected via a hard wire Ethernet connection or via a wireless connection.

The problem appears to squarely set with Dreamweaver CS4 itself. I also had the same exact problem with Dreamweaver CS3, and got so frustrated I simply dispensed with working any further with the CS3 version and have continued using Dreamweaver 8 as a result. I really need to make the change to CS4 now as my business needs are closer to requiring its use.

Part of the process of making a webpage, one has to open it through the internet. Firefox is my choice but unfortunately when pressing F12, Firefox opens but does not open my Dreamweaver based work. 

I have searched online and it appears quite a few years back alot of people were experiencing the same with their (now older) versions of Firefox.

OS X :: Installing Photoshop CS And Dreamweaver MX 204 On Macbook Pro?

Sep 5, 2009

I have a Macbook Pro. I have a copy of Dreamweaver MX 2004 and Adobe Photoshop CS that I would like to install on this machine. Both of these programs are backed up on an external harddisk.

I used to to have a copy of this Photoshop working on my mac, but a few months ago, it stopped working, and I haven't been able to get it up and running since.

Here are the specs of my Mac:

2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

So far I have basically tried copying these programs onto my machine from the external disk, but with no success.

Is there anyone who might have any idea what is going on with these programs, and how I can get them working again my machine?

I'm manually moving files to a new hard drive and need the files for Dreamweaver CS4 so I don't have to setup new sites again. Are they in the User > Library > etc...? Or System > Library > etc...? I tried copying the user library Dreamweaver files but it didn't work. Just to be clear I'm not talking about the individual files for my site, I need the preference files? Not sure what they are called, .plist? The ones that will restore Dreamweaver with the correct directories and stuff.

Software :: Using Dreamweaver To Build Websites?

May 18, 2008

I would like to be able to build and maintain a website for my financially strapped public library as a service to them and then build a site for my genealogy. When I taught I developed our school's first website using Adobe PageMill about 12 years ago. I have forgotten most everything I knew.

I recently updated my Mac OSX version to 10.4.11. The rest of my profile is the same as shown.

I have been looking into the Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 and I have several questions. First, is this a good choice? Should I also purchase Fireworks CS3 and Contribute CS3 to make the job easier? (Or do I really need everything included in the Adobe CS3 Web Standard package?) Will my present computer system be able to handle this software? Do I need to upgrade my memory?

Also, should I consider downloading PageSpinner to work with in addition to Dreamweaver or will I be confusing myself more?

I have picked out some instruction books on developing websites and using Dreamweaver and I catch on to using software quickly, but I'm not sure about my hardware.

Software :: Dreamweaver CS4 Not Displaying Filenames?

Mar 27, 2009

I've just upgraded from an iBook (OS 10.4) to a MacBook (10.5x). Since my old version of Dreamweaver MX refused to open on the new system, I downloaded the 30-day trial version of DW CS4 (my time is about half up). It recognizes my website, but when I open it in site view, it doesn't display any of the file names. If I mouse over the empty white space next to the little file icons, the name appears, but it's impossible to work on the site this way, of course. I posted my problem in the Adobe forum with no response; I've googled my way through bazillions of other DW-OS 10.5 problems, but haven't found mine. Maybe I'm missing something completely obvious, but I've been using DW for many years and have never seen this weirdness before
