The weight of data (in gigs) doesn't really matter with iPhoto. That's just file storage. If you have a large HD with plenty of free space (30%+ and never less than 10%), it really doesn't matter. iPhoto used to be rated for 250,000 items in the library, but in the most recent update it has the same format as Aperture, and that is effectively unlimited. ...

I can confirm this is a bug with the Intel Graphics 4000 GPU. I see the graphics artifacts on my 13" Retina MacBook Pro and not on my older MBP which has Mt. Lion and an Nvidia Geforce GPU. I have first hand experience with this issue while trying to develop css buttons for websites... I believe the artifacts can be reproduced by using the css3 ...

The photo can be found in the /Library/Caches folder, if you haven't cleared this folder yet. Otherwise, I recommend typing: dscl . -read /Users/short_username JPEGPhoto | tail -1 | xxd -r -p > /PATH/TO/accountImage.jpg on one line in a Terminal window, from Chealion's brilliant answer here. In the above example, a JPEG copy will be saved to ...

Using ImageMagick: $ convert image.png -crop '1x1+100+200' txt:- Outputs, e.g. # ImageMagick pixel enumeration: 1,1,255,rgb 0,0: (236,236,236) #ECECEC rgb(236,236,236) Or, if the file is PNG-24 file, it outputs e.g. # ImageMagick pixel enumeration: 1,1,255,rgba 0,0: ( 0, 0, 0,243) #000000F3 rgba(0,0,0,0.952941) At -crop option I've first ...

Yes this is normal. Both the 15" and the 17" MacBook Pro have two graphic cards and use the Intel HD graphics for normal function and switch to the ATI Radeon when a more graphically demanding application is being run. Also when you connect the external display the ATI card kicks in in order to drive both of your screens. This is why you get the blue screen ...

The iOS Notes app is not able to insert pictures. At best it will paste a url to an image. I suggest you use another note app such as Evernote or Notability.

No - currently, only computers with a ThunderBolt port (combined DisplayPort + PCIe data) will work for video in mirroring on an iMac. This means a small selection of other Macs that ship with thunderbolt currently work. There could be adapters later that help, and perhaps a firmware update, but even a MacBook Air that you buy today with DisplayPort out ...

The answer is no (correctly answered by @JFW), this is not possible using Firewire because the protocol simply does not provide the required bandwidth. However, when the day comes you purchase a machine equipped with Thunderbolt, continue reading. Sonnet recently announced the release of several "add-on" components that make use of a Mac's thunderbolt port. ...

You can also make a column with them, instead of ...

I have had this same problem with this same card. I know that it won't boot when I see horizontal blue bars through the Apple logo at the login screen, it goes to white-screen after that and the fans rev up. I've found the most reliable way to boot up is to let it advance to the white/grey screen after the Apple logo, then I close the lid and wrap it in a ...
