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 Aperture 3.2.3, a small maintenance update to its professional photo organizer and editor. Like the recent update to iPhoto (see “iPhoto ’11 9.2.2,” 8 March 2012), this release enables you to delete individual photos from your iCloud Photo Stream. It also addresses unnamed “minor issues related to performance and stability.” ($79.99 new, free update, 635.54 MB, [release notes][*])

The minor issue related to performance seems to be an alert which popped up on my machine requesting that I delete a 3ivx QuickTime component which 'severely impacts performance'. It identifies it in the Finder and continues with the install after deletion.
