What to do when iPhoto and Photos take up too much storage space on a Mac

Because iPhoto retains the originally imported images without modification, an upgrade to Photos would require duplicating all of those images, plus importing any modified versions stored in the library. I and others have explained this before at Macworld, so I won’t go into great depth, but Apple relied on hard links, a special…

Microsoft Word: How to open or import other file formats

You can open or import a surprising number of file formats into Microsoft Word. Not to be confused with file formatting, which—in most programs—refers to the design of a page, file formats are little encoded programs that tell computers how to handle the files used in specific programs. Look for the three or four letters after the period that follows the file name—that’s the file extension revealing the associated program. Not all file formats are compatible with all programs, especially…

How to create and edit Memoji in iOS 12

The release of the iPhone X was accompanied by a fun feature for the TrueDepth camera: Animoji. The adorable cartoonish animated emoji were an instant hit, with early adopters creating “Animoji karaoke” music videos, skits, movie scenes, and more. iOS 12 expands on Animoji in some important ways, like tripling the recording length to 30 seconds and adding new faces and improving facial recognition. But the most important change is a new feature called “Memoji” that lets you create an…
