Re: Photos App

You could, of course set up several Smart Albums that are preset for different functions. Smart Albums are almost universally described with a fixed set of criteria, with their main function to automatically organize newly added photos. I hadn't thought before to use a Smart Album with the criteria ...

Re: Photos App

A little more on using a Smart Album as an Advanced Search function. To use a Smart Album this way, you'd normally first have to click the Advanced Search Smart Album. And it won't always be in the same place because albums are sorted alphabetically. Then you'd control click and choose Edit Smart Al...

Mojave Books.app

A number of books I have in Books.app won't open. I get a message saying to reinstall iTunes (??), but of course, I can't because iTunes is incorporated into Mojave.

Re: Phishing

Yes, maybe even more than the usual number of English errors. People at Microsoft, I think, hypothesize that it's intended to filter out the skeptical before the chain of links begins. I've seen some phishing attempts that begin "Excuse my bad English..." "in that of crime engagement" "You need prov...

Phishing

I've seen some nasty-looking phishing emails, ones that might fool or at least frighten some people. But sometimes I wish I had a Mac lab set up so I could click on the links and see what happens. This one is almost funny (except for the criminal intent). And yes, it appears they did just rip off th...

Apple vs Monterey Bay Aquarium

More Photos Tips I've been working through thousands of images adding descriptions and locations. I'm putting both in the Description field. Having some description is better than none, of course. And I'm putting text of the location in the Description field as well because that seems future-proof....

Re: Photos App

More Photos Tips When looking at a set of photos, you can open the Info window to get several bits of information about a selected image. At the bottom, there's a small street map. It's still somewhat mysterious to me how Photos knows how to show the location in that map, but I'm pretty sure it rea...
