Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

 
 

Aperture 3.4.4

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has updated its professional photo management application Aperture to address a collection of annoying issues. Aperture 3.4.4 fixes an unnamed problem that could cause the application to quit during image import and when uploading images to Photo Stream; correctly displays raw images from Nikon P7700 cameras in the import window; properly displays thumbnails with names longer than 250 characters; resolves a problem that caused warning dialogs to appear when Web albums are synced after waking from sleep; and incorporates the important-yet-undefined “stability and performance improvements.” ($79.99 new at the Mac App Store, free update, 523.15 MB, release notes)
