Better Text Formatting in iPhoto

If you're creating a card or book in iPhoto, and you're not happy with the formatting options for the text (such as line spacing or justification), copy the text out to TextEdit, make the changes you want there, and paste it back into iPhoto, which will retain your changes.

 
 

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.0

Send Article to a Friend

Following a lengthy public beta, Adobe has released Photoshop Lightroom 3.0. The latest major version of the company's professional photo cataloging and editing software dramatically improves its capability to reduce noise from high-ISO images; adds support for organizing video files in the library; uploads images to Flickr (and displays comments that other people leave on them at the site); and adds tethered shooting to record photos directly from the camera to Lightroom. A few other new features dance between the analog and digital photo worlds: A lens correction feature can correct images based on camera model, lens model, and combinations of the two, addressing the quirks of specific sensors and glass. Perspective correction helps remove unwanted distortion. And, at the other end of the spectrum, a new film grain simulation tool brings a customizable analog film look to digital photos. ($299 new, $99 upgrade, 74.9 MB)
