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.

Adam as information server -- I like providing useful and timely information to people - that's why I write TidBITS. However, recently I've been hammered by email from readers searching for information that may exist in back issues of TidBITS. I normally try to help and search in Easy View on the my TidBITS archive. Now that I'm having trouble keeping up with my email, I ask that you try to do those searches on your own. It's not difficult to get back issues and Easy View from sumex or another archive site, and if you are on the Internet, you don't even have to do that since Ephraim Vishniac added TidBITS to the WAIS (see TidBITS-160). Information on obtaining back issues and searching the WAIS is in the automatic reply file you get if you send email to <info@tidbits.com>, and please, use that automated information. It will give me more time to work on TidBITS and less stress for my wrists, both of which will ensure that TidBITS continues to improve. Remember, the address for automatic information is:

info@tidbits.com

Thanks for helping remove an unnecessary load, and as always, don't hesitate to send information, comments, or suggestions. I'll reply eventually.
