Open Files with App Switcher

Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

GraphicConverter 8.5.3

Send Article to a Friend

Lemkesoft has released GraphicConverter 8.5.3, featuring a mix of new additions and welcome bug fixes. The update adds the option to geotag images from the map view (which also adds a search field), a new Copy EXIF Tags to IPTC Caption feature (as well as an option to open a separate IPTC window in the browser), batch support for image catalog creation, and an option for defining overlap printing width. In the user interface department, the update adds a command that enables you to move your cursor left or right without invoking the command for image change, and lets you use the default display behavior for zooming or scaling after an image change. The release also fixes a bug that affected the import of uncompressed PSD files (a glitch that bedeviled one TidBITS staffer), a problem with GIF loop detection, a possible memory leak in image-to-QuickTime conversion, and an issue with renaming files in the browser that switched names from lowercase to uppercase (and vice versa). ($39.95 new from the Lemkesoft Web site or $38.99 from the Mac App Store, 150 MB, release notes).
