Re: iPhone SE

Sold out at Apple in one day. But: Although iPhone SE devices are becoming harder to find, there are still several third-party retailers that have the phones in stock. If you want a new model, eBay is your best bet. If you're open to a refurbished model, Amazon and BuyBackWorld are viable options. h...

Add Image to PDF

Does any SMUGger know how to add an image to a page of a pdf? I have Preview, of course, but also have Acrobat Pro DC, and can't find a way. Except, I can convert an image to a pdf, then add it as a separate page to an existing pdf. That's OK, but not exactly what I'm trying to do. Also, I don't wan...

Re: How to make your new Mac bootable from an external drive

In other news related to changes on the Mac, DiskWarrior is still not able to rebuild a drive formatted as AFPS.
The next major release of DiskWarrior will include the ability to rebuild APFS disks.

Re: Photos App

Here's another option: External Editors For Photos.app. $0.99 in the Mac App Store This is a Photos extension and shows up in the Edit mode under the Extensions (...) button. I think this allows roundtrip editing in Photoshop while retaining the .psd format. (I haven't tested with RW2 files though.)...
