Autoís of CES 2022, On 1 Resize AI 2022, alternatives to Adobe Acrobat, iOS apps Dream and InPaint

NJMUG is back in our fifth live meeting of the year at the Clifton Allwood Library. Our meeting on Tuesday May 17th is in our old room and starts at 6:30PM. We will require seeing your Covid Vaccination card and the library insists on everyone being masked throughout the meeting so if that's OK with you, we would love to see you there.

This months meeting will feature Louis Perezís coverage of the Autos of CES 2022. CES has always been on the fringes of auto-show culture, but over the past few years, automakers have steadily given more and more priority to Las Vegas in January. Despite a number of setbacks in 2022, including media and vendor pullouts over COVID-19 concerns, the show continued on, and the result could qualify as the best auto show in years.

Bruce Mittelman will demonstrate On 1 Resize AI 2022 which allows users to quickly enlarge photos while maintaining and recovering an incredible amount of detail and sharpness. - Bruce will also show a clever iOS app called WOMBO Dream. Dream creates beautiful artwork using the power of AI. Enter a prompt, pick an art style and watch WOMBO Dream turn your idea into an AI-powered painting in seconds.

Jerry Gherardi will be showing off InPaint a $2.99 iOS app that magically removes objects from your photo, filling the selected area with intelligently-generated textures pulled from the surrounding image data.

Finally, Mark Astmann will show two less expensive alternatives to Adobe Acrobat which cost users between $12.99 and $14,99 a month. Apple's free Preview, Smile Software's PDFPenPro and Wondershare's PDF Element wonít set you back nearly as much, but can they do all that Acrobat does?

As a reminder, we start off each meeting with a general Q&A where some of our best minds help solve problems you’re having with your Apple gear. We hope to see you at the next meeting.
