"Snow Leopard for Photographers" - Digital Photography Podcast 191


Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) promises better speed and stability. For the most part, I think Apple has delivered the goods. But I also sense that expectations might be a little high for this evolutionary release of the Mac operating system. In this podcast, I discuss my clean install of Snow Leopard from a photographer's point of view.

You might also want to take a look at my brief article, Snow Leopard Notes for Photographers. Other tidbits include Nikon's compatibility report for Capture NX2 users and HP's driver instructions for 10.6 users.

Monthly Photo Assignment

Simple is the Sept. 2009 Photo Assignment. My original thought was the power that comes from a simple composition, with as few elements as possible. But you might find another twist on this month's theme. You can read more about how to submit on our Member Participation page. Deadline for entry is Sept. 30, 2009.

I've now also upgraded a 1-year-old MBP 17" with Snow Leopard. It's a faster machine than the first one I updated. As I mentioned in the podcast, the faster the machine, the more noticeable Snow Leopard performance is.

But the real joy was the GBs of hard disk space Snow Leopard recovered. I like that part of the upgrade even more.

I am glad to hear that someone has had a positive experience with Snow Leopard. I have had nothing but problems. My scanner won't scan, my printers won't print, Aperture is having problems, and I have seen more spinning beach balls than at a beach volleyball tournament. Also itunes won't recognize my Apple TV, and I had to do a restore on my ipod touch to get it to sync. Maybe my computer is too new. It is only 4 months old. Maybe I should go back to my old one. ;-)

I am glad that you had a positive experience with Snow Leopard. Mine has been nothing but trouble. My printers won't print, scanners won't scan, itunes won't work with AppleTV and Aperture is also on the fritz. I have seen more spinning beach balls than at a beach volleyball tournament. Maybe my computer is too new. It is only 6 months old.

This is absolutely so cool :) Thanks for putting this online :)
