Lightroom 6 arrives

It’s been almost two years since Lightroom 5 was released, which at the time was a major update to the photo editing program’s look and performance. The biggest change in this version of Lightroom is speed. Lightroom 6’s performance is based heavily on your computer’s GPU and processing power, but Adobe is promising speed increases on most modern machines. Even if you’re using a MacBook Pro from four years ago, you’ll still see an improvement in the overall performance and the speed of individual tools.

How to set-up parental controls on your iPad

Now-a-days, kids are far more technologically advanced than most of their parents were at the same age much less now. This is both a blessing and a curse for us as parents, though. I think it’s great that my 7 year old can pick up an iPad and get his reading and math homework done using a touch interface that he is already very comfortable and proficient with. I find it helpful and thoughtful that his school supports a paperless initiative when it comes to the tools he uses for learning.Renkman
