A collection of posts related to all with Photographs…Take a look and enjoy
I have been considering moving a considerable photo collection I have amassed for a few years now after getting my first digital camera. I used to take a lot of pictures before that with a beloved Cannon SLR that belonged to my father. Sadly that camera got stolen in a holiday in Cancun... but that is a story for another time.
Anyway, I used to use Picasa to organise my photos into albums and upload or share some with friends and family. Picasa was superseded by Google Photos and I never quite liked losing some control on where my photos went.
I have been an iOS user of Apple Photos -- I like the simplicity of taking a picture and it being part of an album that I keep in my phone until I clean the album... I did try using the Mac version, but as I said I never liked just getting a soup of pictures. I wanted to keep them in the album/folder hierarchy I curated myself. It is until now that I have found a way for Apple Photos to respect my hierarchy. Here is what you need to do:
- Find the place where your pictures are organised folders and drag the top folder onto the Photos App icon in the Dock. It does not matter if the App is running
- NOTE: Do not drag it to the Photo App window. If you do, the applications behaves in a different way and you will end up with a soup of photographs.
- At the top of the window you will see a checkbox that reads “Keep Folder Organisation” on the top right (see the screenshot above)
- Click the blue button, “Import All New Items”
Et voilà! Your imported photos will show up in an organised folder in the sidebar.Read me...
I went to a gig the other day at the Olympic Studios. A nice and friendly venue where you can enjoy good food, great cinema and even live music.
The band that was playing the last set was Bamboo Smoke and they had this fabulous music sequencer and digital audio workstation called Ableton Push... This was exactly what I was playing with in the 80s with my Fabulous Fred... And I bet the Ableton may not be able to do all the 10 different activities that Fred could: electronic organ, music machine, memory game, mind bender, submarine hunt, baseball, roulette game and a few more.
It was great to have been able to attend a lecture at the new home of the Institute of Physics. I have been a member for almost two decades and I have even served as an officer for one of the interest groups, the Computational Physics Group is you must know.
The event was a talk by Stephen Hilton from the School of Pharmacy, UCL 3D Printing and its Application in Chemistry and Pharmacy. It was a very useful talk covering applications ranging from teaching, cost saving in chemistry labs, personalised medicine and chemistry itself.
As for the building, it was nice to finally see the end result, with a hint of brutalist architecture and some nice details such as the electromagnetic wave diagram in some of the windows, and Orion in the cealing!
A great time being a tourist at home. Last day of March with sunshine and a spring on my step.
This is the time of year where this is exactly what happens to my calendar... a blur...
Amazing! I got to meet Chris Robshaw. It was great to hear him talk about leadership, World Cup challenges and even stand up comedy at a #rugby business network eventRead me...
Great to share some time with my fellow colleagues at GA: instructors, TAs, business development, etc
Great weather... and then we have our party in the rain! #typical
I love the sound that snow makes when you step on it. Also, it reveals the other animals we share space with.
