Tips for Managing Scanned Photos Burlington VT

Now that you have digitized and organized your valued pictures, is a good idea to back up your iPhoto library. This way you can save your sorted original scanned files before starting on any additional restoration efforts.

Sonos ZonePlayer S5 Burlington VT

The S5 carries five speakers—a 3.5-inch woofer, two 3-inch midrange drivers, and two tweeters. Each speaker is driven by its own Class-D digital amplifier. On the back of the S5 you’ll find a 3.5mm headphone port; a 3.5mm audio-input port for connecting an analog audio source such as an iPod, portable disc player, or TV; and two Ethernet ports.

Sanyo VPC-WH1 Burlington VT

There are only two reasons to buy Sanyo’s Xacti VPC-WH1 HD camcorder, but they’re good reasons: It’s inexpensive, and it’s waterproof.

InFocus IN1102 Review Burlington VT

With its substantial light output of 2200 lumens, the IN1102 can deliver a viewable screen in rooms with considerable ambient light, without losing image quality. Its native 1280 by 800 (WXGA) resolution and wide aspect ratio make it a good match for displaying images from a MacBook, as well as for showing widescreen DVDs and HDTV. But you’ll want to use another source for sound, since this projector's 1.0-watt mono speaker is barely audible.

Xmenu Review Burlington VT

One of my favorite OS X add-ons is FinderPop , in part because of its menu-bar menu that provides quick access to my favorite files and folders. But if this is the only one of FinderPop’s many features you need, a suitable alternative is Devon Technologies.

Apple Compressor 3.5 Burlington VT

Apple's Compressor has always had a sole mission: to compress video footage to other formats. Version 3.5 enhances these capabilities by making the power of the program easier and faster to get to, and extending Compressor's mission beyond merely compression to encompass the next logical steps for a video encoding job.

Backup Plan Burlington VT

Backing up data in Burlington isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition—what works for you will depend on the types of data you want to protect and, more important, how worried you are about keeping that data safe. Rob Griffiths' guidelines can help you figure out your own plan.

Canon PowerShot A480 Burlington VT

Canon’s PowerShot A480 is designed for people who want to shoot pictures without fussing over camera settings. It’s a dead-simple, reasonably stylish point-and-shoot camera to have on hand when you’re hanging out with friends and family in Burlington.

Color 1.5 Review Burlington VT

Color has reached a very workable threshold where most projects, most of the time, can be round tripped successfully between Final Cut Pro 7 and Color 1.5. Still graphics, speed effects, multicam clips, and other common elements no longer translate incorrectly between Final Cut and Color, a very noteworthy improvement.

Ethernet-Networked Printers and Snow Leopard Burlington VT

After upgrading to Snow Leopard, Ted Landau's trusty old HP LaserJet 4000N no longer responded to Print requests from his Mac. Here's how he tackled the problem. Plus: a bonus look at the low ink level warning in OS X 10.6.

Fujifilm FinePix Z30 Burlington VT

Fujifilm’s FinePix Z30 in Burlington may look like a toy, but this fashion-first point-and-shoot camera (available in black, orange, pink, purple, and white) takes excellent photos. Still, you’re unlikely to gravitate toward this camera unless you’re a teenage girl, due to its youthful design and bright colors.

InFocus IN1102 Review Burlington VT

With its substantial light output of 2200 lumens, the IN1102 can deliver a viewable screen in rooms with considerable ambient light, without losing image quality. Its native 1280 by 800 (WXGA) resolution and wide aspect ratio make it a good match for displaying images from a MacBook, as well as for showing widescreen DVDs and HDTV. But you’ll want to use another source for sound, since this projector's 1.0-watt mono speaker is barely audible.

Intellisys Project Review Burlington VT

Intellisys features a wide array of collaboration features, which is essential to keeping everyone involved in your project current and on the same page. Without collaboration, no project management software can help groups and teams achieve project success.

iPhone 3G S Burlington VT

The iPhone 3G S is, without a doubt, the finest iPhone Apple has made. If you've never had an iPhone before, but are considering the purchase of a smartphone for the first time, you will not find a better Internet-connected phone than the iPhone 3G S in Burlington.

Kodak Zx1 Burlington VT

With its smaller size, the Zx1 (2.0 by 4.2 by 0.8 inches) is a lot more pocketable than the Zi6 (2.5 by 4.5 by 0.9 inches). From a distance, the Zx1 looks like a large mobile phone. Unlike the Zi6’s plastic and rubber body, the Zx1 has a plastic front and a brushed metal back. Kodak says the Zx1 is “weather resistant,” which means it can handle very light sprinkles of water and dirt. It’s not waterproof nor is it water resistant, but you don’t have to worry too much when shooting in, say, a light fog.

LaCie d2 Network Burlington VT

LaCie's d2 Network is surprisingly versatile, feature rich, and an easy to understand unit you can use to store media files so that they are available to everyone on your home network in Burlington.

Mac OS X Hints Burlington VT

Use a simple trick to quickly see what's behind a Terminal window, without having to move it way out of the way, use Expose, minimize it to the Dock, or switch to another application.

Pentax X70 Burlington VT

Pentax's 12-megapixel X70 boasts an impressively wide and exceptionally long 26mm-to-624mm-equivalent lens, which can be kicked up to a downright-ridiculous 3,900mm by using the digital Intelligent Zoom feature.

Sanyo VPC-WH1 Burlington VT

There are only two reasons to buy Sanyo’s Xacti VPC-WH1 HD camcorder, but they’re good reasons: It’s inexpensive, and it’s waterproof.

SiteGrinder 2 Pro Burlington VT

Graphic artists and designers who are comfortable with mocking up Web sites in Photoshop will love SiteGrinder 2 Pro in Burlington. This Photoshop plug-in works extremely well at converting layered Photoshop designs into highly functional and respectably coded Web sites.

The S5 carries five speakers—a 3.5-inch woofer, two 3-inch midrange drivers, and two tweeters. Each speaker is driven by its own Class-D digital amplifier.

Sumo Paint Editor Burlington VT

Let’s say you’ve used Photoshop before but you can’t afford your own copy. You should feel right at home with Sumo Paint in Burlington, as many of its tools and palettes work like Photoshop’s. A couple of caveats: some tools aren’t available, and some aren’t as in-depth. You can create a new document or open files from your Mac, a Web page, or your Sumo account (you’ll need one to save layered images); the app displays within your Web browser, letting you work and save projects much like you would on your own desktop.
