I’d like to set up some iPads so that our musicians can all follow along with what’s on the mac’s screen. This may also be useful for helping visually impaired people to see what is on a projector screen. Previously I’ve used VNC but it’s a bit complex to set up. There are various options around but sadly none of them worked seamlessly. Here’s a discussion that may save you some time!

Apple Keynote has an option when you are importing a photo to “scale” it to fit to a slide. For some reason it will down-scale a larger picture to fit on a small slide but it won’t scale a small picture up.

There are lots of different ways you can set up a computer and projector at your church but after 15 years playing around with various options here is the system we have ended up with at our church.  We want the words up the front for people to sing along to and we want the singers to be able to read from a screen in front of them as well.

remote

I’ve just found a new wireless remote to use with presentations in Keynote or Powerpoint. Recently I have purchased a Kensington wireless remote and I’m very happy with it. It appeared in our local Office works store recently for just $29, and it’s on par with the old Logitec remote. Continue reading ⟩
