Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Pixelmator 3.0

Send Article to a Friend

Pixelmator has been updated to version 3.0 with a new official name: Pixelmator 3.0 FX (though the Mac App Store, the sole place to purchase Pixelmator, doesn’t append the “FX” to the image editing and manipulation app’s name). The new release uses a new image editing engine that should improve performance dramatically, and adds non-destructive Layer Styles (such as shadows, gradients, and outlines), a Liquify Tool for warping images, and support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks (including App Nap, Compressed Memory, and tags). But these new features come at a cost, with Pixelmator 3.0 FX now selling for $29.99, rising from the special half-price “introductory” cost of $14.99 that it has been selling for since October 2012. ($29.99 new, free update, 35.9 MB, release notes)
