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.

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

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

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 ...

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

Solved: Booted to Single-User mode and disabled Radeon GPU. Details of investigation: Initially I suspected hard-drive corruption and went about trying to remedy that. Unsuccessfully, I tried the following, with each continuing to hang as described above: Safe boot Boot into recovery (including Internet Recovery) Boot from install media on USB drive Boot ...

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.

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 ...

First: Nothing is lost. Yet. It is only hidden from plain view. Next, the file and menu names below might not be correct. I am doing this from a German OS, and I did not want to reboot just for the filenames. iPhoto keeps your photos in a subfolder, named "iPhoto Library" of the "Pictures" folder in the user directory. You need to control-click that folder ...

My early 2011 17" starting exhibiting grapics errors yesterday. Today it would not boot. Boot fails when the screen exhibits vertical bars instead of gray background when the apple logo first appears. The apple logo disappears and only gray remains. Then the fans crank up. I can get back to a successful boot with the integrated graphics. Here is how: Let ...

Turns out that Finder uses 18x18px icons, not 16x16px icons. If you're designing sidebar icons, you'll need to supply these as well.

Take a look at Shade 3D. You can get Shade 3D for Unity for free, and Shade 3D Basic is only $99. It has modeling, rendering and a lot of features you may not need now, but may decide you want later. Plus, its easy to get started with.

Files on the remote server are not indexed by Spotlight. Try using identify or ffprobe: brew install imagemagick ffmpeg identify image.png ffprobe -i video.mp4

After a reboot everything works fine again. Finder was probably bugging (again ...).

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 ...

First, shouldn't your example be : convert ex.gif my_png_files_%d.png as the input file is the GIF? Could this be an anti-aliasing problem? Have you tried convert ex.gif +antialiasing my_png_files_%d.png I assume you have read the manual or the local copy at file:///opt/local/share/doc/ImageMagick-6.8.0/www/convert.html EDIT: It turned out to be a ...

The idea is a solid one on the way. First off you DON'T NEED an external monitor unless it is on the Mac operating system. This isn't much a problem as macs can EASILY do boot camp. You can use Nvidia Optimus software or LucidLogix GPU virtuMVP software to just offload the rendering of the integrated GPU onto any other discrete GPU ergo the external card. ...

You might also just use Spotlight: mdfind sorts the files by the containing folder: mdfind 'kMDItemKind=*image' -onlyin /path/to/folder This opens the first 100 images in Preview: mdfind 'kMDItemKind=*image' -onlyin .|sed -n 1,100p|tr \\n \\0|xargs -0 open -a Preview If kMDItemKind=*image is missing some file types, try using ...

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.

You can use the convert command if you install ImageMagick. ImageMagick isn't always a simple install, but if you install Xcode and Homebrew it should be fairly painless. convert *.png foobar.pdf http://www.imagemagick.org/script/convert.php

I wouldn't imagine an inverter board would be relevant here, its sole purpose is to control power flow to the backlight. If the screen flickered black or the brightness seemed to flicker then you might look at the inverter board but I highly doubt it could cause graphic anomalies similar to yours. Your examples look more video related, which would point to ...

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