Apple has released iPhoto 9.1.5, a minor update to its consumer photo management software that addresses several issues. These include the way the date range of an event is displayed after the Adjust Time and Date command has been executed; the fact that some Ken Burns Effect transitions may not play in a saved Classic slideshow; and issues with scrolling, deleting, selecting, and cropping pictures.

Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen
When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?
Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.
