Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

Send Article to a Friend

Lemkesoft has released GraphicConverter 9.1 with a number of new and updated features. The venerable graphic conversion and editing utility adds the capability to attach images to email via a new menu item, anti-aliasing to the pen tool, the capability to extract images from a PDF, curve support for grayscale images, and pressure support for the pen tool. The user interface also receives a number of changes, including the addition of options to display a larger color label and color mode of an image in the browser, new Browse Copy and Browse Google Drive menu items, and added Save, Undo, and Redo icons to the toolbox. The update also improves animated GIF support (with more consistent transparency on import and export), improves rename options for extensions, and fixes a possible bug with selections and core image filters. ($39.95 new from the Lemkesoft Web site or from the Mac App Store, 222 MB, release notes).
