With iPhoto 9.4.3, Apple has enhanced the consumer-level photo management app’s Photo Stream support and fixed a handful of bugs. Photos can now be deleted from My Photo Stream by dragging them to the Trash, you can use File > Export to export photos from Photo Stream, and raw images manually imported from My Photo Stream are now editable. On the bug-squashing side of the equation, one fix prevents manually rotated photos from appearing unrotated when shared to Photo Stream, another addresses a crash when syncing to Facebook, a third prevents calendar text from appearing at the wrong size and resulting in order cancellation, and the final one fixes a problem that could cause books to have an incorrect number of pages after rearranging two-page spreads.

Avoid Naming Pear Note Files
If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:
- Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
- Select a default save location.
- Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
- Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
- If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.
