Mac OS X 10.11 “El Capitan” Suggested Upgrade


Mac Users running version 10.10.5 Yosemite or older should upgrade to the latest OS X 10.11.1 if they are experiencing crashes in JDLab2You or Pick-a-Pack. Apple’s latest operating system “El Capitan” works with JDLab2You and Pick-a-Pack.

Why should you upgrade? As a result of optimizing our software to work with El Capitan, it is now having trouble with the older versions including Yosemite and Snow Leopard.

Mac computers introduced in 2009 and later, and some models introduced in 2007 and 2008, can also be upgraded to El Capitan.

Click here to learn more about the update. In most cases, the upgrade will be free. Some older Macs may not be compatible or could be subject to upgrade fees.

Using the Cropping Tools in JDLab2You

Cropping an image can sometimes be a challenge, but JDlab2you gives you a great set of tools to work with. Here’s a quick guide to help you through them and hopefully provide some productivity tips as well.

First, remember WYSIWYG: “What You See IS What You Get.” For example, if your original image has plenty of space above the subject’s head, yet when you drop it on to an 8×10″ print format the head is cut off, don’t assume that the print will look fine. JDlab2you will show you exactly the crop that will be applied to your image on the print.
