My New Favorite Site
This is a bit of a departure from my typical topics, but I recently bought a Mac Pro. After upgrading to the Canon 5D Mark II in December, the double in file size was crushing my mini Mac Mini. Despite the upgrade, I felt like the processing in Lightroom, Photo Mechanic and Photoshop was quite lacking until I came across the Mac Performance Guide.
Not only did it help me further maximize the power of my Mac Pro when using these programs, but it also provides great solutions to improve performance. I'm planning on going to a Striped Raid, dedicating more space to the scratch disk and updating RAM so hopefully I'll be cruising along soon enough. If any of this sounds like Martian to you, be sure to read the site as it will quickly get you up to speed.
Best of luck!
