Thanks everyone for the comments.
Still going through a little learning curve, but generally I'm extremely pleased.
Using CS2, MS Office, iWork, so far. Found DiscCover, a nifty little program for DVD/CD labels. Am probably going to check out Lightroom soon. Still looking for a good database to catalog years of negatives and slides (suggestions? I know it will be a good winter task.)
Question: On the PC I used Real Optimizer, a program from ACDSee designed to convert large quantities of JPG files to a more compressed, web-ready version. It would generally reduce a 200-200K file down to 60-80K, and allow me to dial in the quality setting so it would still look good on the net.
What Mac program do you folks use to do the same thing?
I'll let you be in my dream
if I can be in yours
