“iPadOS is a significant step in uniting all of Apple’s devices together” We were super-excited when Apple announced iPadOS at WWDC 2019 a couple of months back. Of course, having its own operating system means that the unique capabilities of the best-selling tablets can be showcased, but it also marks a significant step in uniting all of Apple’s devices together with one uniformed operating system. One that is inherently the same in look and feel at the ground level, but with added layers of functionality specific to the device. We’re seeing clues elsewhere too, such as Sidecar mode in macOS Catalina that transforms your iPad into a second screen for your Mac. This issue we guide you through the best bits of iPadOS and reveal how it can make your iPad…

apple news+ set for lift-off

APPLE NEWS+, APPLE’S NEW MAGAZINE AND NEWSPAPER SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE, has been released in the UK and Australia, but there doesn’t seem to have been much in the way of excitement from users, and neither do rival subscription offerings appear overly concerned.

Many iPad owners have been begging for the iPad operating system to match the hardware which in recent times has leapt forward in ways that we had not expected. The sheer power in the latest iPads easily competes with pro-level Macs in terms of speed and functionality, but the OS has remained closer to that of the iPhone than a tool you could use to get serious stuff done. With iPadOS Apple has changed that, to a point, and it is currently in the stage where it carefully manages to balance the needs of power users alongside those of people who just want to use their iPads for entertainment and general computing related tasks. It is obviously essential for Apple to keep the iPad as usable and smooth as possible because…

create retro colours

Crop Many classic seaside postcards had a wider shape than modern prints. We can use the Crop panel’s Aspect setting to reshape our source image to a wider ratio of 3:5. Cropping also gives the shot a better balance. False colours Skin tones in retro postcards weren’t particularly accurate due to the printing process. Days in direct sunlight would also cause the postcard’s colours to change. We can recreate this look using the Selective Colour panel. Bleached edges By using the Vignette panel we can over-expose the edges of the frame to create a sun-bleached look in our seaside postcard. A vignette also adds an organic frame around our seaside subject. Selective adjustments The Selective Colour panel enables you to target and tweak the properties of specific colours. Here we’ve shifted the Hue of the skin tones…
