Spacebar Magnifies Photos in iPhoto '08

In iPhoto '08, you can choose whether double-clicking on a photo will edit it or magnify it. I prefer my double-clicks to edit photos, but every now and then it's nice to magnify a photo. To do that, even when double-click is set to edit, just select the photo and press the Spacebar.

Voila 3.2 and Boom 1.5

Send Article to a Friend

Global Delight has released minor updates to its Voila screen capture app and Boom volume booster app to add compatibility with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Voila 3.2 adds an option to launch at login under Mountain Lion and includes several bug fixes related to various screen capture types and file sharing. Similarly, Boom 1.5 adds the launch at login option, and it also offers support for Notification Center to display file-boosting notifications. According to a Global Delight blog post, both apps have yet to be “retina-fied,” but that task is on the company’s to-do list. Also, while both Voila and Boom are available from the Mac App Store, neither have been updated to these current versions as of this writing, but should be available soon. ($24.99 for Voila and $5.99 and Boom, free updates, 5.1/8.3 MB)
