Adobe has released a bug-fix release to Photoshop Lightroom, its professional photo-management application. Photoshop Lightroom 3.4.1 corrects unspecified issues “introduced in previous versions of Lightroom 3” and also addresses a rare bug introduced in the 3.4 update that could corrupt JPEG images that contain large blocks of private camera data. This update also adds raw support for the Canon Rebel T3i, Nikon D5100, and Fuji FinePix X100. ($299 new, free update for owners of Lightroom 3, $99 upgrade from earlier versions, 88.5 MB)
Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
