Learn the basic ins and outs of Apple devices, the core interface elements—the menus, Finder, and Dock—so you can start working with files, folders, and applications right away.  Mac Essentials looks at concepts and apps (e.g., Mail) and examines that concept across the iMac, iPad, and iPhone, noting the similarities and more importantly the differences on each device. Each meeting will start with YOUR questions.

When Pictures are Worth More Than a Thousand Words

Everyone has pictures. But last September Apple announced that they would no longer print books, calendars, cards, etc., from your pictures. Bob Skapura will demonstrate Apple’s recommended solution of using a third-party Extension within Photos for all those projects and much more. And what is an Extension and how does it work.

Mimio Photos

Mimeo Photos is a powerful new extension for creating photobooks, cards, and calendars within the Photos app for macOS. 

Designed with Apple’s cherished photo project experience in mind, we offer identical templates, product sizes, and themes, as well as the same premium quality products Apple users know and love.

After installing Mimeo Photos from the Mac App Store, get started by simply choosing your photos in the Photos App and selecting Mimeo Photos from the dropdown under My Projects.

The Diablo Valley Mac Users Group helps Macintosh users get the most out of their computers. Software, hardware, digital filmmaking, photography—these subjects and more are covered in the club’s monthly General Meeting, workshops, and Special Interest Groups.

You are invited to attend our general meetings at the Pleasant Hill Community Center for vendor and club presentations on new hardware, software, and other items of Mac interest. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a Question & Answer segment where you are welcome to ask about your own Mac problems; there’s a break during which the club Mac experts answer your questions one-on-one, and a raffle in addition to the main presentation, usually by a software publisher or hardware manufacturer.

Dues for the entire family are $40 per year-a bargain! Especially since it includes access to the club’s award-winning monthly newsletter, ApplePRESS, and attendance at all Special Interest Group meetings including the monthly MacClinic, where club experts diagnose and repair what’s wrong with your Mac as well as helping you with software upgrades, hard-drive replacement, and similar improvements.
