Just upgraded to a DNP DS40, was using picasa before. But as most people are aware not compatible. My question is what are other MAC users using to view and print their pictures. Transmitting wireless from Nikon D200 and WT3. Or shall i get a PC ??? Your thoughts gratefully appreciated.

If you have a Mac and want a PC (for the reasons you mentioned) then a copy of VMWare at 60ish will give you a PC on your Mac without the need for a New PC

I use XP on several Mac and it works very well.

Picasa is very good and there is a Mac version but unsure about the DNP issues.

I've just downloaded a trial of parallels. So was thinking about running windows on the MAC, with the wireless files being shared from the mac. Off into town today, so may just go for the MAC/Windows option..

Thanks Stewart

I used Parallels a while back and didn't think much of it. They have now updated it so it might be much better now (I didn't give it an indepth look before BTW)

Vmware is great - no issues at all and so simple to use. I can't think of anything parallels would do better.

You could shoot into your Mac into a shared folder and then the PC or Mac could use the files.

Hope that helps

If you are looking at virtualisation capabilities on Mac I suggest you also look at Oracle VirtualBox (used to be Sun VirtualBox, before Oracls bought Sun). It does all the same things as VMWare but is free.

I've used it on WIndows and Linux to run virtual machines.
