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.

Send Article to a Friend

Prosoft Engineering has released Data Rescue 3.2, a significant update to its data recovery software for Mac OS X. The new release includes support for recovering files produced by several new Mac applications, including Microsoft Office 2011, AutoCAD 2010/2011, OpenOffice, QuickBooks 2006 through 2011, and iWork ’05 through ’08. The update can also now find lost AppleScripts, encrypted sparse disk images, Java archives, X3F and MRW raw images, and many more. Other improvements include folder-specific searches, warnings of possible drive failure, new HTML help, improved search performance, and more; see the release notes for a full list. A free trial version of the software can scan for lost files but can only recover a single file of less than 10 MB of size. ($99 new, free update, 13.2 MB)
