GraphicConverter Turns 3.0 -- Lemke Software has released GraphicConverter 3.0. GraphicConverter has long been a shareware favorite for manipulating graphics, thanks to its extensive feature set and affordable price (U.S. $35 or $30 depending on where you live; pricing also available in German marks). GraphicConverter 3.0 offers numerous new conversion options (for a total of 98 file types that can be imported and 38 that can be exported), squashes many bugs, and adds a browser that both displays thumbnails of images stored in a particular folder and streamlines working with those images. The new version is available as a 1.6 MB download from the Lemke Software Web site; here in Seattle, today, we had a faster download time and found links to a 3.0.1 update using one of the GraphicConverter mirrors.

Add Hyperlinks to TextExpander Snippets
You can include a clickable link in a TextExpander snippet. Here's how:
- Create a new snippet.

- Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/

After you've made the link, you can replace the visible URL with other text. Just put your cursor in the active link text and make changes as you would with any other text.
