The embarrassing basics

By June 3, 2021June 30th, 2021Technical Tips

I’m often asked to help with very basic Mac and iPhone things. My clients will say “I know this is a stupid and basic question, and I’m embarrassed to ask, but can you show me how to…”

  • Send a photo via text message
  • Add something to your iPhone or Mac calendar
  • Make a folder and move stuff into it
  • Use emojis ????????
  • Use PayPal or email interac for the first time in your life
  • Take a screenshot
  • Something else you feel ashamed you don’t know how to do

I want you to know that you can absolutely — you’re encouraged to! — ask those embarrassingly basic questions. Make a list and we’ll teach you how to do each one, patiently, and with written notes you can refer to if you like.

My team and I will never, ever make you feel stupid for not knowing how to do those things. We love helping you have those life-changing Mac epiphanies!

    Before I make an appointment, I would like to know if this is something you can help with.

    After a family trip I made an album of 400+ photos, videos, and captions. I have read online that my album will not stay in the order created when I share with others. I need to know how to share (whether within Apple or another app) to keep everything exactly the same on the receiver’s end. Is this something you can assist with?

    • Lucas Roberts says:

      Hi Kathy! Yes indeed I have helped people with that exact challenge. I have a few options for getting the photos shared in the right order… not sure yet which option is best for you. I’m also happy to back my promise with a money back guarantee; if I can’t get the photos in the order you want at the receiver’s end, then I will refund you. Feel free to book anytime just make sure you book with me Lucas Roberts and choose the green “new client” option from here:
