It looks like the weather is about to turn chilly, but the sunny days were great while they lasted!
On the positive side the next examug meeting is just around the corner and we have a great one planned. Plus we have news of our amazing 2016 Christmas Raffle.
Date: Tuesday 8th November
Time: 6.45pm – Coffee and Cakes from 6.30pm
Location: ISCA College, Exeter
Note the new start time! 6.45pm moving 15 mins forward as a result of discussions at the AGM back in August.
We have a jam packed meeting planned, looking an extended look at Apple’s latest and greatest OS. We are going to cover macOS Sierra. Whether you are just starting out or seasoned Mac veteran, we guarantee you will learn something new.
We are going to cover:
- The best new features.
- Our favourite hidden/less obvious additions
- Potential issues and how to overcome them
It’s going to be an insanely great meeting! Lots to cover, and as always, we would welcome you thoughts on macOS, bring along your experiences and prepare to share them if you wish.
After the break we have two options. We are running our final prosumer photo session – this time on the awesome Capture One (https://www.phaseone.com/en/Products/Software/Capture-One-Pro/Highlights.aspx). Capture One is photo editing software that offers digital photo import tools, raw camera file conversion, DNG support, image adjustment, and some organizational features. Also featured are tethered shooting, a live monitor view, and focus tools. Capture One is all about the photography and just the photography: There’s no face recognition, maps, Web sharing, or book printing here!
And if that doesn’t appeal we have another option: “I didn’t know you could do that” a whistle-stop tour of macOS and iOS10 focused on highlighting some of the amazing bitesize features you probably didn’t know existed (for example, did you know if you hold the a key down you get a list of the ‘versions’ of a, á, æ, etc, etc!).
As normal we have another great set of Raffle prizes, including more Apple merchandise, and some other treats but the big draw is the 2016 Christmas Raffle!
