Move Files While Keeping Permissions Intact with “Paste Item Exactly” in the Mac OS X Finder

Aug 28, 2014 - 5 Comments

Finder Cutting and pasting files within the OS X Finder is an easy way to move files and folders around on the Mac, particularly for Windows converts, but by default the cut and paste function changes permissions and ownership during the file move process. For the most part that is desirable, but if you are logged in as an administrator and are modifying another users files or folders, even the Guest user, you may wish to preserve file ownership and user privileges (permissions in unix-speak) when moving the documents around. OS X makes this simple through a hidden function called “Paste Item Exactly”, it’s a somewhat advanced feature in terms of need, but it’s accessible easily through the Edit menu.

Rename Bookmarks in Safari Quickly via the Favorites Bar in OS X

Aug 27, 2014 - 3 Comments

Safari icon Safari Bookmarks default to saving their names as the title of a webpage or website. That means if a site has a long title, the bookmark name will be equally as long. For accessing bookmarks through the Bookmarks menu that isn’t too big of a deal, but when you’re using the Safari Favorites Bar, long names become truncated and often meaningless, thus renaming them can be a good idea.

How to Calibrate Mac Displays for the Best Picture & Color

Aug 26, 2014 - 11 Comments

Calibrate a Display in Mac OS X

Having an external monitor hooked up to a Mac can boost productivity significantly, and most users who get a secondary screen just hook it up and start using it – it works, so why mess around, right? But to get the best picture and color representation out of your external display, you’ll want to take the time to calibrate the screen through a built-in OS X utility. In fact, you should probably calibrate every display you use with your Mac.

Make Image Proof Sheets on a Mac Quickly with This Trick

Aug 25, 2014 - 1 Comment

A quick proof sheet made on Mac

Aside from using apps like Photoshop, one of the best ways to make a contact sheet on the Mac is to use Automator to generate the thumbnail sheet as needed. But because Automator requires the usage of an OS X scripting utility, it’s beyond the comfort level of many users, and it also takes time to set up the Automator thumbnail script. If you just need to quickly create a contact sheet of image thumbnails for proofing, you may not have the time for that.

That’s where this trick comes into play, it’ll quickly generate a thumbnail contact sheet of pictures almost instantly and with very little effort. The downside, however, is that the generated quick and dirty proof sheet is not particularly high DPI, meaning you’ll want to keep these for digital usage only – printing them out is just not going to look that good.

How to Show Back & Forward Buttons in Safari for iPhone

Aug 25, 2014 - 2 Comments

Safari Modern versions of iOS changed how Safari looks when a web page is loaded, particularly on the iPhone and iPod touch. To save screen space on these devices, all of the Safari navigation buttons disappear automatically once you start scrolling through a web page, hiding your standard back and forward features and other buttons. While this helps to reduce onscreen buttons and also aids in emphasizing the web page you are viewing on the smaller displays, it’s also rather confusing for some users to find the back/forward navigation, sharing, bookmarks, and tabs buttons to disappear, particularly if they aren’t familiar with how this feature works in Safari for iOS
