Find Photos in iPhoto in the Finder

Looking for the file associated with a photo in iPhoto? In iPhoto, to view a photo's file in the Finder, Control-click it and choose Show File from the contextual menu that appears. You can then drag the file's icon into an Open dialog to upload it to a photo-sharing service, for instance, but whatever you do, don't move or rename that file!

Pear Note 3.1

Send Article to a Friend

Useful Fruit Software has released Pear Note 3.1 with full support for Retina displays on Macs. The multimedia note-taking app adds support for using images (like photos of slides in a lecture!) in the just-updated Pear Note for iOS 2.1, and it now saves documents in an updated format that can be read by the iOS app. For older Pear Note documents that include images, Useful Fruit suggests opening and re-saving them so they work properly with the iOS app. The release also fixes a bug with saving that caused slides to move back, an issue where shared documents with special characters displayed improperly when hosted on Dropbox, and bugs associated with Spotlight results and the Quick Look generator. Finally, the Mac App Store version is now sandboxed. ($39.99 new, free update, 4.6 MB, release notes)
