Spacebar Magnifies Photos in iPhoto '08

In iPhoto '08, you can choose whether double-clicking on a photo will edit it or magnify it. I prefer my double-clicks to edit photos, but every now and then it's nice to magnify a photo. To do that, even when double-click is set to edit, just select the photo and press the Spacebar.

Going to Macworld Expo? Don't forget to bring along the latest Newtonware offering by Bill Kearney <wkearney@access.digex.net>, a $5 shareware guide to all the exhibitors on the two show floors. You can view by exhibitor name or booth number, there are checkboxes to record which you've visited, and each entry has a notes field where you can jot your own comments. If you pay for the guide, you will receive an export utility to convert your exhibitor list into Names entries. Look via FTP on <newton.uiowa.edu>. [MHA]
