Spacebar Magnifies Photos in iPhoto '08

In iPhoto '08, you can choose whether double-clicking on a photo will edit it or magnify it. I prefer my double-clicks to edit photos, but every now and then it's nice to magnify a photo. To do that, even when double-click is set to edit, just select the photo and press the Spacebar.

Send Article to a Friend

Snapz Pro X, the popular screenshot and video capture utility from Ambrosia Software, has been upgraded to version 2.2.3. The update addresses two crashing bugs. One, limited to newer MacBooks, occurred during object selection, and the other occurred for folks using mirrored monitors while attempting to make captures. The updated version of the software also automatically stops capturing video before the movie fills up your hard drive. ($69 new, free update, 10.8 MB)

What makes this a "quiet" upgrade? Did they have ninjas post the announcement to their news page?

Heh. I saw the announcement only via the application's update mechanism, went to the product page, and couldn't find any other release notes. And when I did a Google search for "Snapz Pro X release notes" I got some very old news items. Apparently, just clicking the News tab never occurred to me, so I thought it was a "quiet" upgrade. :-) Now fixed.
