  1. I have a iMac (late 2012) with 2.9GHz Intel Core i5 & 16 GB Memory. It happened before a couple of times, but the last few days it is persistently repeating the same problem. Usually when I switch on the machine, it makes the fan blow out air hard. In the past if I put the Mac to sleep, restart or shutdown and restart, the problem stopped. However, this time, it is often and persistent. When I work, I usually have Safari with a half dozen tabs, Lightroom, dictionary, sometimes Photoshop on all at the same time. But never very intensive heavy lifting in terms of processing images. I read on the internet about SMC (System Management Controller) and how to reset, which I followed but not very successful this time. How serious is this problem? Is it the beginning of my Mac’s death? If there is someone with the same experience who successffully remedied the problem, I would like to hear how. Thanks you in advance Sung
  2. I've got a mid 2011 27" iMac that is still zipping along nicely - since I do just about everything on my laptop other than work requiring a large monitor. It has 8GB RAM 1333 MHz DDR 3 and a 3.4 GHz i7 Intel processor ADM Radeon HD Graphics Card, and dual hard drives, a 251GB Intel 6 SSD and an Intel 6 1TB HDD. That SDD was pricey at the time but best decision I ever made. Anyway, I'm thinking of upgrading to a 24MP camera so much larger RAW files and wondering if I should get two more 4GB RAM cards (or whatever they are called) to fill in the two empty slots and upgrade it to the max 16GB RAM. It looks fairly easy to do. Will I see a big increase in processing speed and is a machine this old worth upgrading? I'd love thoughts from the tech minded and anyone else who has done this sort of thing before. I believe all the other components are conducive to the max speed I can get from this machine, and it was designed to take up to 16GB RAM. I run my LR catalog off the HDD (the SDD is too small) and have a 4TB (soon to be replaced by a 6TB) external drive for my photos attached via thunderbolt cable - v 1.0. Has been fast though working on my 500GB SSD MacBook Pro with 8 GB RAM and a 2.8 GHz Intel i7 is a bit faster - the RAM on that is 1600 MHz - so thinking the SSD and the faster RAM both help but I'm really clueless as to what does what and I read conflicting things on the Internet, so pro advice is welcome. Any thoughts on how I'm running my LR catalog welcome too. Thanks much!
  3. Just after some advice I have been offered an Apple iMac "Core i3" 3.06 21.5-Inch mid 2010 computer for £150.00. I have looked at expanding the ram, 8GB would cost £87.00, and a SSD around $120.00. Currently i am using a 6 year old Compaq laptop which is showing it's age. Mainly i need it for Photoshop CC, Lightroom and Microsoft works I was wondering if it was worth buying and upgrading or whether I am better off waiting and saving for a brand new model. Thanks Chris
  4. Since I got my new hard drive installed in my iMac, when I start it up I must have half a dozen boxes that pop up. Dropbox, etc. Things I don't want to see unless I go in applications or menu bar myself. I can't figure out how to get them out of startup. I can't even find the appropriate file/folder. The only thing I found under the heading of Startup is the place that has the Hard drive icon. I know this was easy and straightforward with my PC. Got a clue, anyone? I don't. Betty
  5. Hi I have been using an iMac for a few months now. I used to use a PC prior to that. When I view my recently uploaded images on Alamy on my PC monitor (used to be calibrated regularly), they appear to be much darker and more contrasty than my intention. Is this a common problem/issue with iMac? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. I am also curious about how my images appear on other people's monitors. Can anyone spare a minute or so to look through my images and make a comment in terms of brightness and contrast? The first few pages (120 images on a page) are done with iMac. Sung
  6. I have used for the first time a 32GB Lexar Professional 800x Compact Flash card in a D700 and get a message saying 'computer does not recognise this card' when using a Lexar card reader to transfer the images to an iMac. I prefer this method, than to loading directly from the camera. It would be appreciated if anyone could advise how to overcome this problem. Many thanks in anticipation. Peter t
  7. I have been using iMac now for a few weeks. I used iMac's own monitor calibration function and I found the calibration very close to that of my pc monitor which was calibrated with Spider 2. How do you calibrate your iMac? (I know this topic was covered in the old forum but I didn't manage to print it beforehand.) Any tips and advices, please? My iMac monitor adjust brightness automatically according to the ambient light (I chose this option). How accurate do you find this automatic adjustment? Or is it better to turn this off? Is Spider 2 still good/current enough to calibrate iMac? How do you control the ambient light where your workstation is? I am asking this questions as the images, which I edited and uploaded a few days ago, now look a bit darker than I intended. Obviously the ambient light now and then is different. Your comments will be very much appreciated. Sung
