File Manager Showdown Part 2: Forklift 3

In this screencast tutorial I take a look at another File Management Application for macOS and that is Forklift 3 by Binarynights (http://www.binarynights.com/forklift/). Forklift 3 is an excellent file management application that
Forklift 3
includes tools for connecting to both local and remote services and has some great features like the menubar application that lets you upload documents on the fly, a compare, sync, rename, and synced browsing and many other features. I covered some of the core features in this screencast to give as good a comparison as I can between the different file management applications. So far our first two apps have held their own against each other and include some great file management features.

I will be looking at other file management software packages in this series to help you determine which one is right for you.

File Manager Showdown Part 1: Transmit 5

Transmit 5
In this screencast tutorial I start a series on comparing various file managers to help you determine which one is right for you. This week I take a look at the newly released Transmit 5.

Transmit 5 by Panic (https://panic.com/transmit/) is a very well designed and pretty file transfer application. It has everything you could want in a file transfer application including support for all of the major protocols and web services and features like file syncing, sync browsing, droplets for quick uploading, and many more. In this overview there are some features I wasn’t able to cover but we get most of basics down in this screencast.

Transmit does have an iOS application that syncs up with the desktop app making it seamless experience between the two. In fact of the applications we will review, Transmit is the only one with an iOS counterpart.

I will be looking at other file management software packages in this series to help you determine which one is right for you.

Plotagraph+ allows you to animate your photos to give them a video look and allows you to do things like animate clouds or water to help your photos come to life. It also includes easy export to your photo library and other social media. If you have ever wanted to animate your photos give Plotagraph+ a try.

macOS Sierra Server Part 35: Creating Custom NetRestore Images

OS X Server
In this screencast tutorial I cover how to create and install your own custom NetRestore images to be deployed by macOS Server. I use an application called AutoDMG by Mager Valp (https://github.com/MagerValp/AutoDMG/releases/tag/v1.7.3) to create the images and then show you how to add those images to the NetInstall Service.

As special thanks to Jeffrey Battersby who has a great series on NetInstall over on Macworld (http://www.macworld.com/article/3073565/macs/how-to-master-the-netinstall-service.html)

macOS Sierra Server Part 34: Creating Custom Packages for NetRestore

OS X Server
In this screencast tutorial I cover how to create your own custom packages to include with image restore files to be used with macOS Server NetInstall Service. To do this I take a look at two third party applications Packages by Stéphane Sudre (http://s.sudre.free.fr/Software/Packages/about.html) and CreateUserPkg by Mager Valp (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/createuserpkg/id540673598?mt=12).

I walk through how to use these applications to set up custom packages that we will use in the next screencast to create the image we want to use for our netRestore service.
