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!

RAM Doubler Update

RAM Doubler Update -- RAM Doubler users may recall our mention in TidBITS-271 of a problem where some RAM Doubler users had trouble using CD-ROMs. Connectix has just released a RAM Doubler 1.5.2 updater, which corrects the problem and enables you to update the installed copy of RAM Doubler and your master disk (unless your master disk is part of Microsoft Office). Brian Grove <>, RAM Doubler Product Manager, sent this partial list of problems fixed in RAM Doubler 1.5.2:

  • Fixes CD-ROM and File Sharing problem where CD-ROM files would not appear.
  • Certain CD-ROM sound files now play with RAM Doubler installed.
  • Compatible with PowerPC 603.
  • Fully compatible with PowerPC upgrade cards.

The ReadMe file for RAM Doubler recommends several times that RAM Doubler and System 7.5 users should upgrade to System 7.5.1 using the System 7.5 Update 1.0 (see TidBITS-268). The ReadMe also has a suggestion that DeskWriter users should note: if you print to a DeskWriter and the printing goes slowly or doesn't happen at all, the problem might be that you have too much free memory (our sympathies). The ReadMe file suggests launching a sufficient number of applications (or perhaps a special copy of SimpleText, set to consume a fair amount of RAM), such that the available free memory (as shown in the About This Macintosh window), falls to below 1500K.
