    i just checked again. borderfx is available for iphoto as well

    BorderFX is a plug-in for adding borders and titles to images, it works with both Aperture and iPhoto.

    • Add Borders and Strokes
    • Add Drop Shadows
    • Add Titles, Copyright & Metadata
    • Add a Watermark
    • Save settings as Presets
    • Export with any Dimensions
    • Apply sharpening to images when exporting.
    • ColorSync and ICC profile support

    I believe Trend Micro has a free, web-based version for Mac OS X, but I've never tried it.

    The only reason for which I think you'd ever need it is exchanging files with Windows users.

    i'm using a Mac at home and Windows at the office and i transfer files between system regularly.

    i think quite unlikely since the mac doesn't use the windows system library and has no PC bios. but a microsoft office macro virus could potentially mess up microsoft office for mac stuff.

    Hi guys,

    This is the first time I tried to watch a DVD after I got my iMac.

    However, as usual, the Mac DVD player allows only 5 times to set the DVD region. I have DVDs from the US, local, China, etc so this restriction is certainly a hinderance.

    Does any of you know a way out of this to get region-free viewing?

    I've downloaded VLC player but it doesn't seem to work well on my iMac. Makes a grinding sound as it tries to read the DVD without success.

    Thanks for the help...

    you can try VLC. It can load from disk. No need to use mac's own dvd player.

    Try Xineplayer? http://developer.berlios.de/project/...?group_id=3329

    Region-coding is definitely a bitch. If you dont mind the wait, rip it to your harddisk first with Handbrake, then watch it in full glory on your tv and home theatre with WD TV.

    Not in a case where you're transferring files between the two on separate physical machines.

    There are trojans that can be built into JPEG files but only unpatched systems would be affected at all and I've yet to see a JPEG crafted specifically for Macs. Of course, you might pass that file onto someone else using Windows, which would be a problem.

    If you don't know the difference, viruses work without any help. Trojans require the user to do something extra and on Mac OS X, you must give your administration authorisation to help them work.

    A more likely case of cross-system contamination is a Microsoft Word virus, but not all of those work so well and with MS Office 2008 for Mac, there is no Visual BASIC for Applications, so no MS Office viruses work.

    There have also been a number of security issues with Adobe Acrobat and Reader, but a Mac user doesn't need Reader at all since Preview can handle the same files.

    Thanks peterpan and germboi.

    Peterpan: I've tried VLC. But it doesn't work well with my new iMac with Snow Leopard. When I tried to open my DVDs, the DVD player tried hard to read the disc and produced some repeated "grinding" sound which didn't sound nice. There's nothing wrong with my DVDs.

    Germboi: Ok I will try Xineplayer. You using it? Any issues?

    Region coding is definitely a bitch like you say. Whoever started it... I don't know what's on his or her mind. Don't they know we do watch DVDs from so many different countries? And I don't even have pirated ones!

    can try SGL Marketing at SLS
    or if you know the hardware, you can just buy from the PC shops
    just stick to the branded RAM modules

    Memory world also can

    Yes, there is some issue where either Snow Leopard has closed the region code gap or VLC isn't working around the region code. Feel lucky, though, because on some systems, you can't watch any coded DVD at all. The grinding sound is annoying and I had to go back to my almost 5 year old PowerBook to play a DVD.
