How to send photo from iPhone to MacBook

In today’s quick tutorial, you will learn how to quickly send pictures and other files for your iPhone to your Mac computer using AirDrop.

I send pictures to my computer all the time and before when I had an Android phone, I was usually attaching them to my emails and sending them to myself 🙂 Then, I would go to my PC, log on my Gmail account and go to sent folder. This worked fine but, luckily, there’s even an easier way to send files on Apple products. This way is called Airdrop. With AirDrop, you can instantly share your documents, photos, videos, and more with other Apple devices that are nearby. In this scenario, we will see how to send a photo from iPhone to MacBook but you can transfer files the other way around or to iPads or even iPods touch.

How to change apps and folder icons on Mac

In today’s tutorial, you will find out how to quickly customize the look of folders and apps on Mac by changing the default icons.

There was a question regarding this topic posted on our forum so I quickly found out and decided to create a small post out of it. Somebody has asked how to change Mail app icon and I am not sure if this is possible. The trick I discovered works for every app and folder but it does not work for Apps created by Apple. Mail is one of these apps and I think it is not possible to change its icon (if you know how to do it, please let me know in the comments below).

How to change kk Star Ratings

There is a popular and useful WordPress plugin called kk Star Ratings that allow visitors to the website leave feedback in the form of star rating. The usage of this plugin brings some benefit to the webmaster. First of all, the click rate in search result may be slightly higher because Google (perhaps other search engines too) display star rating icons which encourage people to click. The second benefit is the feedback the website owner gets from visitors. If the rating is low, it is clearly a sign that there is something wrong with the post. If this happens, the editor should re-write the post and make it more valuable.

Tampering with these ratings is not a great idea and my intention is not to write instructions how to cheat 🙂 It is more how to protect your website against fake ratings posted by a hater or a competitor.

I have recently had exactly such a case. The ratings of one of articles on of my site Smart Polak were suddenly suspiciously low. I have checked Google Analytics and it turned out that while usually there are around 15-20 visits per day, there are some days with more 200 visits. During these days the ratings went really low. I know that the percentage of visitors that actually leave these rating is very low, probably around 1% if not less, so when suddenly I got 200 ratings in one day, I knew that something was wrong 😮
