Official newsletter of the Ocala Macintosh User Group which meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Multipurpose Senior Center
Volume 76, December, 2004
Point of View
The time of year to enjoy family and friends is upon us already. After a year of events that made it seem to fly by, I for one would like to reflect on the positive things in my life.
One thing that has been a positive through war news, hurricanes, elections, and personal ups and downs is OMUG. This year our group has really had great meetings, thanks to the presenters and members. The refreshments have been wonderful, I always like them! With all the changes in the Mac world this year we have all shared information to make understanding and staying up to date much easier. In a difficult year we have seen our membership increase, thanks to the hard work and goodwill of all of us.
Im looking forward to celebrating the season with all of you and wish everyone a joyous holiday season and the best new year ever.
As you no doubt remember, we do not have a scheduled program for our Christmas Party. However, we plan to have some good Christmas background music accompanying a projected slide show with winter scenes just to put you in the mood for the season. Also, OMUG will have a special gift for each member that we hope you will find useful and unique. Our President, Mike Bridge will have comments for the group. Again, if any one has specific ideas for programs for the upcoming year, please bring them with you to the Christmas Party.

Internet Explorer - Moving to Safari
A: Internet Explorer Favorites are typically imported into Safari the very first time you run Safari. After that, though, things become a little more complicated. Safari doesnt provide a way to import bookmarks beyond first launch, so youll need to use Gordon Byrnes Safari Enhancer (http://www.lordofthecows. com/safari_enhancer.php/) to make the transfer. Once imported, the bookmarks will appear in Safaris Bookmarks page. You can then rearrange them the way you want, including dragging them to the Bookmarks Bar or sorting them into folders.
iPhoto or Photoshop
Q: When I connect my digital camera to my Mac via USB, Apples iPhoto automatically opens. I use Adobe Photoshop to manipulate my photos and would like it to open when I connect the camera. Ive explored both iPhotos preferences and System Preferences find a way to achieve this, but Ive been unsuccessful. Can you help? Robert Steven Connett
A: Youre right to look to a preference to direct Photoshop to open when you connect your camera, but youve missed the appropriate application. That application is Image Capture (found inside OS Xs Applications folder). Launch Image Capture, choose Preferences from the Image Capture menu, and in the resulting window, select Other from the Camera Preferences popup menu. In the list that appears, navigate to your copy of Photoshop, select it, and click on Open. The next time you connect your camera, Photoshop should launch.
