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.

From https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3481136: Search for images by pressing Ctrl + F Add a search attribute Pick the "Orientation" attribute Set "equals" to 0 if you want landscape/horizontal, 1 if you want portrait/vertical

Try OsiriX: http://www.osirix-viewer.com The viewer is free and I used it myself to inspect x ray images.

You are confusing parallax and dynamic. Parallax is the name given to the effect whereby a still image is moved in response to input at a greater or lesser extent than other on screen elements, to provide a sense of depth. The image used is just a static image file that is slightly larger than the screen size, to allow it to move slightly without ...

Depending on your needs you could use one of these free tools: Apple's Preview (Built-in with OSX) Gimp Sketchbook Express If you want something more advanced you could try Adobe's Photoshop Pixelmator

I found another application named Skitch for Mac system to edit the screenshot. There are many features like free hand circles (which is not available in the Preview app) are available in this application. You can download it here

You might want to try Vector Magic, it did very helpful turning my sketches into vector. It needs to be scanned first. We can adjust how detail the vector output.

The file command in the Terminal also gives you some information: % file foo.png foo.png: PNG image data, 612 x 792, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced

Take a peek at this answer for some more details, but you can use the finder without having to install software to achieve most of this. Basically, you can set your finder view to show dimensions as well as file size (and the usual, modified date etc), and you can set the thumbnail size for some preview, and simply hit space to open larger previews using ...

I am having precisely the same issues with the same MacBook Pro, a 2010 15" 2.4GHz i5. When I uncheck the 'Automatic graphic switching' box in Energy Saving in System Preferences, the artefacts immediately disappear. My guess? A Mavericks driver issue with Intel HD graphics in this laptop.

In Keynote.app: Select all parts of the graphic you need to scale, then copy them to the clipboard (Command-C). In Preview.app, just create a new document (Command-N). Contents from the clipboard will be automatically inserted. Save this document as PDF somewhere, and drag it to Keynote. This should do the trick.

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 ...

It's likely that the external display connections are simply wired directly to the discrete GPU. The internal display is connected to a gmux chip that handles switching between GPUs and it probably would have been significantly more complex to route the 3 external ports the same way. I think it's fair to assume that most users connecting external displays ...

No, since the screenshots are simply taken from the pixels shown on-screen or off-screen. However, the screenshots can be turned into vectors using software such as Adobe Illustrator, but the result won't be exact.

The videos remain sharp on the retina display because they're scaled down to half their original size (a 720p video is 1280x720, but displayed at 640x360 on YouTube). Images on webpages are usually blurry because in order to display at the same physical size as on a non-retina display, they have to be scaled up 2x (unless the website provides 2x source ...

Automator You can use OS X's Automator.app to quickly rename batches of images. The Actions you want are: Get Selected Finder Items Rename Finder Items Using this approach you can rename files, change the case, or append/remove specific parts of the original file name. You can create droplet like applications using Automator to make the whole process ...

My solution: duplicate the slideshow, resize the entire document copy the correctly sized elements back to the original doc. Any variation of this will probably work - the key principle is that if you resize from the Arrange properties tab, objects will resize whilst text won't; if you resize the document: everything stays in proportion. Using the ...

I liked Adrian B's answer. Here's the shell script I wrote to rename screen cap files: https://gist.github.com/DinoChiesa/7796444 To set it up as a Folder Action, follow this article. When you get to the Automator window, follow this guide: Don't forget to save it (Command-S). It takes 3-6 seconds, in my experience, for that folder action to "kick ...

While iPhoto may work for some, it doesn't come bundled with every Mac and it's not free. It also relies on a library. The quickest, cheapest (free) and easiest way to view/slideshow a folder and its subfolders is using Sequential. Just drag it to your Applications folder, run it once so it shows up on your Open with menu, right click on a folder, choose ...

Some of the Automator actions, such as those pertaining to Quartz, use the discrete GPU (if available). It may be a stability thing to require the discrete GPU on launch (similar to VMware Fusion). If you regularly use Automator and don't use the Quartz filters (or don't care about the performance gain) it should be safe to use gfxCardStatus. Just select ...

There is an Automator action - New PDF from images. It creates a single multi-page document from input images. You can create a workflow or app that would process your images that you drop onto it. If I create an application in Automator with that single action, I can drop my images onto it, and it'll create a PDF with one page per image.

It looks like Apple doesn't specifically allow you to create dynamic backgrounds - but this developer has a demo of one working.

https://github.com/hamzasood/AnimatedWallpaperTest This is a sample project showing how to make something like a dynamic background but I think you need to jailbreak your phone to make use of it.

The 2008 iMac's use MXM Video cards. You could replace it but it's (very) expensive for not much more performances (High end models used a 8800M GTS (branded as a 8800GS).

Apples Pages. I have used this only a little bit. But in most case it suits my basic needs. I have not tried to do anything really fancy. So cannot tell you if it is too limited for you

Here are my settings for BF3 - I also have a rMBP (15"). You can modify these settings under Manage 3D Settings in the NVIDIA Control Panel: I leave everything else to default, except I also turn off Anisotropic Filtering. For the above settings to take effect, the following setting must also be set under Adjust Image Settings with Preview: Also, ...

Open Terminal (Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app) and paste this command rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Desktop.plist press 'return' on the keyboard. Log out, log back in again. Change the wallpaper to what you want. Log out, log back in once more to test. Any improvement?

I'm not aware of any way to copy the pixel data, but you can just drag & drop the file directly into Photoshop to achieve the same thing. This works with most image editing and publishing applications I've used (including things like Powerpoint/Keynote, Word/Pages, as well as all the usual image editors).

You told this happened after you restored your running system from hibernation that was caused by a depleted battery. I suspect this to be the problem. The battery charging status is indirectly measured by the voltage. When nearly drained, Lithium batteries cannot provide the needed current to power all the computers components. This may crash your system ...

Best way to test if it is hardware or software is to use a fresh install. If you have your original CDs that came with the MacBook Pro, or the Snow Leopard upgrade cd, you can install Snow Leopard to an external hard drive and try to reproduce the issue in that second copy of Mac OS X. If it is reproducible, it's hardware, if it won't re-occur, it's ...
