The next meeting of the MacPeople Gainesville Area Macintosh Users Group will be on Thursday, June 12, 2014, from 6:00-8:30 pm in the University of Florida Entomology-Nematology Bldg., room 1031 (building in the woods just east of the Performing Arts Center). Need Directions?

6:00 – 6:50 –  Question and Answer An informal Question and Answer session lead by one of our volunteers. Bring your problems questions and with our philosophy of “members helping members” the group will use our collective knowledge to help you find a solution.

6:50 – 7:00 – Announcements and Break Refreshments will be available during the break. As a courtesy to other members, we request the refreshments not be opened until our scheduled break. Please, help yourself to the coffee at anytime.

7:00 – 8:00 – Creating Video Slideshows From Photos –  Special guest videographer Wally Cherwinski will join us via video  to show us how we can use our Mac to transform a folder of digital images into a dazzling, animated slideshow with eye appeal for any audience.  If you’re a photographer, slideshows are a wonderful cross between stills & video and an effective way to showcase your best shots with some stylistic touches from movie making. In this session, we’ll check out iPhoto, Aperture and some other programs that produce polished results, including a close look at the latest version of PhotoMagico 4. And we’ll cover some tips for planning, building and fine tuning a slideshow then getting it ready for prime time. You’ll also hear about several other clever apps that add novel animation effects to your stills and video clips.

Wally’s Presentation


8:00 – 8:10 – Prize Drawing We invite you to participate in our monthly prize drawing. A selection of Apple and/or technology related prizes will be available. Please see the treasurer no later than 15 minutes prior to the drawing to purchase your tickets.

8:10 – 8:30  – Using your Mac with Multiple Monitors If you use your Mac laptop with different size monitors, constantly resizing and repositions windows every 9:29 AM you change resolutions is a hassle. Rick will demo Stay, an application that automatically remembers the size and placement of your windows whenever you connect or disconnect monitors of different resolutions.
