Whenever there is a major upgrade for any of my "go-to" software, I am always very careful to get as much info on changes, removals and additions as possible before making the move. As we saw with iMovie 10, this was probably a good idea, as there was a significant rollback in some features that could have made working with it uncomfortable.

This is a great walk-through of of iMovie 10, a little over 11 minuntes long, that points out the significant changes and giving a basic demo of how it works. iMovie has now adopted the look and feel of Apple's full-featured video editor, Final Cut Pro, while still trying to remain easy-to-use for beginning and intermediate video editors.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more.
