Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe has released Lightroom 4.3 with support for 20 cameras and 42 lens profiles (including the iPhone 5) and fixes for a variety of bugs. Amongst the highlights, the professional photo cataloging and editing application fixes a problem with uploading to Flickr if the photo’s filename contained an apostrophe, ensures that Catalogs from Photoshop Elements 11 are updated, properly imports AVCHD video, fixes an issue where TIFF images could experience a tonal shift, and fixes a flickering problem with videos created on the iPhone 4. Additionally, Lightroom 4.3 now supports Retina displays when using either the Library or Develop modules. ($149 new, free update, 419 MB, release notes)
