About Steve Hammond

Steve is a computer geek, and he has been for many years. He has studied computer science for 15 years, with a college degree in computer science, a backchelor degree in computer with a minor in mathematics, and a Master degree in computer science. In high school he was initiated to computer on an Apple II, then his parents bought him a Commodore 64, then a Mac Plus. But in computer science, DOS and Windows PC were used mostly, so he switched to the dark side for a while. In 2000 he began doing some photography, then discovered iPhoto which make him come back to the Macintosh in 2002. Since, he became a Mac geek again and he sure won't turn back to the PC.

For this review, we’ll simply call it Lightroom CC.

You Gotta See This. That is not only the name of the product, but what I said to others when I saw this. If you have an iPhone 4 (it does not run on anything but the iPhone 4), for only $1.99 you can get one of the coolest photo products I have seen in a long time, especially on a cell phone.

Review – Photo to Movie

On June 30, 2010, in Macintosh, Photography, Review, by Elisa Pacelli


Photo to Movie 4.5
Company: LQ Graphics
Price: $49.95

Have you ever created a slideshow of your favorite photos, but wished it could have a little more pizazz? Would you like more control of the motion, transitions, even the music in the slideshow? Let me show you Photo to Movie.

Now, before you start thinking, “Ugh, more vacation slides for me to sit through at my friend’s party…,” think about looking at photos in a whole new way. Normally, you would look at one photo after another, possibly including some awkward transitions. Eventually they would all start to blend together in your mind—and you’ve mentally left the party. Start creating your slideshows with Photo to Movie, and you’ll never have to live out this sad scenario again.
