Copy Excel Selection as a Picture

Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.

 
 

Caffeine Software Suspends Operations

Caffeine Software Suspends Operations -- On 03-Mar-03, Caffeine Software, makers of TIFFany, Curator, Cycles, and the elegant PixelNhance, suspended operations. The note on Caffeine Software's home page gives no indication as to why the company closed down, and our inquiries haven't turned up any additional information. After a week or so, Caffeine Software modified the home page to add a link to a 57.1 MB disk image containing the latest official versions of all their applications. If you don't own TIFFany, it's still possible to request a trial license from Caffeine Software's license server, although I don't know if it will actually expire in a month as it claimed. Their other applications are free as far as I can tell, and are fully functional. I'm mainly sad to see PixelNhance go; it's a slick and simple image-editing program with a fun interface that makes an excellent addition to iPhoto's editing tools. Still, I'm pleased that Caffeine Software saw fit to make their programs available at the end in this way; perhaps they'll see life again at a new company. [ACE]
