Open Links from Mail in the Background

Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.

 
 

GraphicConverter 9.2

Send Article to a Friend

Lemkesoft has released GraphicConverter 9.2, which now includes a new feature that regularly verifies images on NAS devices (via a background task). The graphic conversion and editing utility gains sharpen, burn, and dodge brushes, an export to Apple TV that keeps file order, display of animated GIFs during slideshow, the capability to access tools in new submenu, and a golden ratio display. The update also optimizes the speed of PDF multipage editing if ZIP or JPEG compression is used, improves rename options, fixes a bug when saving GIF loop values, and improves batch multiscale options. ($39.95 new from the Lemkesoft Web site or from the Mac App Store, 228 MB, release notes, 10.7+).
