    my personal fav is still to go to epicentre (either wheelock or suntec). you buy a MB there, you get to sign up as an epicentre member for discounts. lemme know if you are going to epicentre at wheelock? i got a fren working there as a part-timer.

    I know that for Windows.... We can use Shrink Pics and that will automatically shrink your pics when sending it thru email...

    Pls share your thoughts as I have difficulties looking for 1....cheers

    Merry Christmas....
    Just double click to open the picture.
    Then menu bar -> Tools - >Adjust Size.
    Then when you save, you can choose the compression and file format.

    I think it works for multiple files if you select them all and change the size one shot.

    i like their membership thingy tho cos the discounts for members are not too bad. stupid of me not to buy my MB from them and got it at some roadshow at funan by another retailer, which gave me grief...
    very weird leh. whenever i wanted to buy my macs (bought 4 macs now), i always ask if they got the edu discounts and they'll always say no and they can't offer that but apple sg online can do that.. so ended up always buying from apple sg online. yes i agree on the membership part. but buy ipod also can have!

    no need grief la, next mac, can buy from them if they still offer!

    Just resize to the size you want to print, at 300 dpi.

    A 4 by 6 inch photo is around only about 2.1MP at that resolution (less than 10% of your 24MP Sony photo).

    Anyone upgraded the ram sticks for your MBP before here? What brand did you use? I was thinking of putting in a 500gb WD hard disk and upgrading the rams to 4gb.

    you can actually open up your MBP and see wat brand of RAM was given to you. just buy back the same brand. apple, for better or worse, is quite picky abt the brand of RAM it uses.

    Tech Support is totally unaware of such issues and kept saying its within specs. (My ass)
    can try searching the apple discussion forums for similar cases. in the meantime get smcfancontrol and bump up the fan speed.

    Already did. Apparently, Mac Pro Nehalem has problems with audio playback and CPU overheating. Crapz.

    yeah i believe germ_boi is right. just wanna see if there's any other brands of rams that other forumers have used here, that is working perfectly with their MBPs.

    hey guys, any free software for macbook that allows u to add borders and watermark to your photos which also does resizing at the same time? currently using fastone photo resizer (free) on my old notebook.

    picasa 3 can resize and add copyright text, maybe can do watermark also. don't think it can do borders though.

    if you use apple aperture, you can get borderfx to add borders and some exif or copyright text.
