@Rick - With Mirroring turned off, when you open System Preferences and click Desktop & Screen Saver, you should see a window open in each display that allows you to select a distinct background image for each display. Mac 101: Change your desktop

Automator You can batch convert these files by: Open Automator from /Applications Create a new Workflow Drag the Get Specified Finder Items to the workflow builder. Drag the Change Type of Images to the workflow builder. This will prompt you to add the Copy Finder Items action as a backup option. That's up to you. Click the Add... button in the Get ...

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 ...

You may use ImageMagick in order to crop from command line. That way you may include the command inside an Applescript, or call the command directly from terminal. You can install it following these instructions and then you crop all images inside a folder, given: convert '*.jpg' -crop 120x120+10+5 thumbnail%03d.png where 120x120 is the resulting size ...

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 ...

There is a default application named Preview in OS-X for editing images. If you created any screen shots, just open that screenshot image in Preview application and you can see the edit toolbar to edit the image.

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 ...

In later iWork edition Apple made changes to the formats so this is the cause that you can not follow the procedure described in the article that you are referring. The best way to go around this annoyance would be: Open the pages document with your current pages (I assume is the latest Pages), Save us some other name but before you do it extend the save ...

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.

A quick search gave me two promising applications: Commercial: Creaceed Morph Age Freeware: Norrkross MorphX I believe that both do what you want.

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 do it with Imagemagick from a terminal. If you have Homebrew, installing it is as easy as: brew install imagemagick Once you have it, open the terminal and go to the folder where you have the pictures, then do: convert foo* +append result.jpg And there you have it, your 100 pictures in a row. You can also make a column with them, instead of ...

You may want to watch this YouTube video - it shows the scenario that I believe you're looking to solve - it uses Preview to create a multi-page PDF. The steps are: Open your images in Preview Select Print from the File menu (or ⌘P) Click on the "PDF" button in the Print dialog and select "Save as PDF..." from the dropdown Provide a file name and Save

gfxCardStatus is a free app that lives in your menu bar. When you click it, it tells you which graphics card you're using. It also has a beta feature that lets you manually switch to one or the other. Hope it serves you well.

Unfortunately, there appears to be no way to create a favicon via the gui elements of iWeb. However, you are able to pretty simply add the html to the published version of your site. I recommend following this guide from All About iWeb. It walks you through how to first create the favicon using one of a variety of free online tools and then informs you ...

You don't specify how old your MBP is, but some MBPs built a few years ago shipped with graphics cards that fatally crashed after a few years of years. That's what happened to mine and it was a warranty fix because a recall was done. My understanding of the chime is that it is hard-coded into the motherboard. If it is not playing with the chime, then you ...

Dropbox is a good idea, but since you are using Adobe Ideas, which has an "email photo" link, you could just use the Email Upload features of any photo sharing site (eg. Flickr email upload link, twitpic, etc.), and then copy the link from the browser.

No external GPUs currently that are (fast enough) for gaming. Monitor is possible, but you need an express card for that, and only the 2008 unibody versions of the 15" MacBook Pros have it. I don't think FireWire is fast enough, and Thunderbolt is probably the only interface right now that would realistically be possible for an external GPU to run from. ...

You can change 'Screen shot' to 'screenshot' with the following commands defaults write com.apple.screencapture name screenshot killall SystemUIServer If you want to go digging a bit deeper in Terminal, you can achieve what you want by doing the following: NOTE: Make a backup of any files you change in case you make a mistake. cd ...

I solved this another way. Using Automator I set up a Folder Action to monitor my screen shot folder and rename any new files exactly the way I want them. There's a decent guide here with a similar approach and instructions.

No, unfortunately there's no way to do such a thing (at least to my knowledge). However, a quite effective workaround is to select all the items you want to apply to other master slides, by clicking all the items with ⌘ or ⇧ down, then copy them (⌘C) and paste to all other master slides. Luckily, Keynote doesn't move pasted items when pasting on another ...

The dark linen source file is stored in the System Library folder so you will need "root" or administrator permissions to make changes to the directory or the file. /System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/C/Resources/NSTexturedFullScreenBackgroundColor.png

I'm the creator of gif text, an update is in review right now, there are about 20+ new gifs, and I'm constantly making more. Another option is that you can create a folder in your photo album, and email yourself the gifs you want that aren't in my app, then you have access to as many as you want.

However, the Automator solution by @Matt Love will not convert multipage PDF files to individual TIFFs. You would need to run two separate Automator workflows, one to convert PDF files to images and one to change the format of image files. As an alternative, you might consider using AppleScript with Mac OS X's built-in Image Events. Unlike a simple ...

You could just wait for the next iPhone update. While it's not guaranteed to have the ability to add photos, I believe it's likely that it will have the ability to do so. That's because one of the new features in Mountain Lion is a Notes app which synchronizes with iCloud, and one of it's features is adding pictures to notes: Notes in OS X Mountain Lion ...
