Rogue Amoeba has updated Piezo to version 1.2.3 to add initial compatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Like the simultaneously updated Airfoil 4.8.2, Piezo 1.2.3 gains an overhauled audio capture engine to support Mavericks, and some audio capture sources may behave differently. (If you experience problems, you can submit feedback with this handy support form.) Additionally, due to this large under-the-hood change, Piezo can no longer capture audio from Safari in Mavericks (but a Rogue Amoeba blog post notes this limitation can be worked around easily by streaming audio from Google Chrome or Firefox instead). Other changes include added compatibility with the Microsoft Lync instant messaging and conferencing app, a fix for a glitch with the counter and file name on Mavericks, and an update to requiring 10.7 Lion and later. Note that as of this writing, the Mac App Store version of Piezo is stuck at version 1.2.2.

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!
