MBP alu, ultimo 2008. Epson or other projectors.
Aperture, MBP screen shows browser, secondary viewer (projector) “alternate” i.e. full screen.
Connection between MBP and projector either using mini display port to VGA adapter or mini display port to HDMI adapter
Use: Showing photos on projector to a group of people evaluating / judging photos. And in the near future i need this setup for a open photo competition for the judges to do their job, then i cannot rely on a system not showing correct photo.
1) false size of photo shown on projector
2) Projector defines screen resolution, less than HD/1080
3) Colors shown and brightness are very different if i use VGA or HDMI adapter
4) Often, the drop down tool list is not assessible on the projector, sometimes it is just hidden outside projector area, sometimes it is not there at all
1: I am having troubles showing photos in correct size and crop on the secondary viewer. Often, Aperture crops the view vertically or horizontally, so you will not see the correct composition of the photo. What to do to get projector/aperture to show exactly the correct photo size (which is shown on mbp-screen) ?
If i then shows 2 photos on projector, the crop is typically different, and each photo may change in crop depending of it is shown left or right on screen
2: Both projector and MBP is capable of full HD, but in MBP osx i mostly often cannot choose full HD as resolution for the projector. Any hint/reason/solution ?
3: Typically the HDMI gives way more bright, over saturated photos than when using VGA, on same projector. Any reason ? Any suggestions ?
4: This is a really annoying issue. Often, when discussing the photos, we try to make some post processing. When tools are not there, i need to switch to viewer on MBP to get the tools, then back again as browser. Maybe just a Aperture bug, but not consistent
Any help, suggestion or solutions are really welcome :-)
Thanks in advance
