Two Recent MacVoices Appearances

One of the fun parts of my job is being able to talk to people about new stuff. In this case, I recently did two podcast recordings with Chuck Joiner to talk about the new iMovie ’11 and Photoshop Elements 9. Take a listen: MacVoices #10126: Jeff Carlson Helps You QuickStart with Photoshop Elements 9 Jeff ...

My Macworld iMovie ’11 Review

Macworld has now posted my review of iMovie ’11. I gave it 4.5 mice, up from the 4 mice I gave iMovie ’09 largely due to the inclusion of audio editing features that have finally caught up (and slightly exceeded) those of the late, lamented iMovie HD 6. Putting together a video last night drove ...

It was fun to be there for the announcement, not just because it’s a new Apple product but because there’s a lot of energy and interest among the assembled journalists. (I ...

Recover Erased Photos from a Memory Card

Have you done the bone-headed thing I did recently? I erased a memory card in my camera, and then realized I hadn’t transferred the latest photos to my computer. Fortunately, they’re easy to recover as I write about in an article at TidBITS: Recover Erased Photos from a Memory Card (2009-06-03). I look at four ...

My Photoshop Elements 7 Book On Sale

I just received word from Peachpit that my Photoshop Elements 7 for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide is part of a new VQS promotion that Barnes & Noble is running this month. It’s available for 30 percent off ($20.99) in physical bookstores (look for a “stepladder” display), or $18.89 online if you’re a Barnes & Noble ...
