CDPUG Programming Director and a founding member of CDPUG, Spike Radway of Team Spike Consulting, LLC will show you how to be confident your Mac and PC are safely backed up, and that your valuable data is protected from loss. You will learn simple backup practices to help you avoid stress, and minimize downtime when that inevitable “something” goes wrong on deadline.

Spike will demonstrate blending multiple forms of local back ups including Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner, and off-site Cloud backups with Backblaze and Crashplan.

If you think crossing your fingers, putting files on USB drives, or throwing jobs in a free Dropbox account is a back up strategy, this meeting will help you get to a better place.

This program will focus mainly on the Mac platform, but guest speaker Ken Fanger of On Technology Partners will address backup basics for Windows users as well. We don’t want our non-fruit flavored members to be left out.

    Do you wonder why your photos don’t look like what you expected? It’s such a beautiful world. Why are photos that come out of our cameras so flat and unemotional? It’s because our eyes can see more light than a camera can capture. The solution to capturing the beauty of a shot is HDR.

    HDR is an abbreviation for high dynamic range. HDR photography allows you to create stunning and mind-blowing photos that include incredible lighting, color, and detail you couldn’t otherwise achieve by taking a single photo. An HDR photo displays maximum details for recreating all the beauty you perceived at the moment you took the shot.

    When it comes to editing and creating your HDR photos, Aurora HDR is the world’s most powerful HDR software made exclusively for the Mac (coming soon for PC). Aurora HDR is a joint project developed by Macphun, an award-winning software company, and Trey Ratcliff, the world’s most renowned HDR photographer. Aurora HDR is fast, easy to use, and allows you to create stunning HDR photos in minutes.

    The basics of HDR photography

    • The benefits of HDR
    • Tips, advice, and secrets of HDR
    • About the Mac app Aurora HDR
