Boinx Software's iStopMotion is a great tool for creating stop motion movies using a camera connected directly to your Mac. This tool got much better today, however, with update 2.5. The update adds enhanced support for Canon cameras, better iMovie export options, tilt shift filter, and even color correction.
In an effort to make your viewing of our newly redesigned website all that it can be, Apple has released an update to Safari 5 for both OS X and Windows versions. The update repairs a problem that, in the past, has prevented some users from submitting web forms and corrects an issue that prevented some web surfers from viewing Google image results if Flash version 10.1 was installed on their system.
You’ve probably heard of a little thing called World War II--especially if you play videogames. The 20th century’s massive global conflict is the star of countless blockbuster games and series, from Call of Duty to Battlefield to Brothers in Arms to Medal of Honor and many, many more. While Valve’s Day of Defeat: Source debuted on Windows in 2005, it only recently came to the Mac thanks to the Steam digital storefront, where it costs just $9.99. Luckily, first-person shooters based on WWII never go out of style, and DOD: Source still holds up five years later.
I’d like to upgrade to Snow Leopard, but I’m afraid that if I do, the RightZoom app I have installed will no longer work, and I can’t figure out how to determine whether it will or not. SnowChecker (free, snowleopard.wikidot.com/snowchecker) doesn’t list RightZoom, so I couldn’t check compatibility that way. I’m not sure I want to go back to the default behavior of OS X’s yellow and green buttons, but I’d like to upgrade. Any advice?
I found this tip by accident and wanted to share it--hope you haven’t heard this before. One frustrating thing about the iPhone is photo management. Oh, sure, you get a chance to delete photos after importing them into iPhoto, but you only get that one chance, and it’s all or nothing. If you only want to delete some of the photos, you’ve got to do that manually on the phone--or so I thought.
Turns out there’s another way. Plug in your iPhone and open Preview, then select File > Import From [Your iPhone’s Name]. A window appears showing all the photos on your phone, and you can move them around, save them to disk, and delete them from the phone individually or in batches. Don’t ask me why this is in Preview and not iPhoto!
Mac Pro users are all about kicking things up a notch -- after all, they’re the last current Mac available with expansion ports, so why not take advantage of them? If you want to truly go nuts, NVIDIA now has a graphics card just for you.
Whenever somebody sends me a link to an album in the iTunes Store or an app from the App Store, Safari launches and shows me all the information in a webpage with reviews and song previews and everything. But then iTunes automatically launches and shows me the exact same information! How do I stop Safari from auto-launching iTunes?
