Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Apple has released iPhoto 9.1.3. According to the release notes, the update addresses only a single problem that could cause some events merged in the company’s photo management software to be split back out into individual events after syncing to an iOS device. ($14.99 new, free update, 106.3 MB)

 

New for iOS 8: TextExpander 3 with custom keyboard.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as "Tx" for "TextExpander". With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>

If you purchased iPhoto through the app store, you can get the upgrade only through the app store. Software update will not show the update, and if you download the update from Apple's download web site, you will be prevented from installing it.

Ooo, good point - we're going to have to keep that in mind going forward.
Also, if you bought it from the App Store, its actually a 727 MB update as the whole app must be downloaded again (due to the digital signature). Apple need to fix this if the App Store is going to play an ever bigger role....
