Snapz Pro X 1.0.7 Released -- Ambrosia Software has released Snapz Pro X 1.0.7, the latest version of their Mac OS X screen capture utility. The new version can capture movies of screen actions with less impact on the Mac during capturing (at the cost of a lower frame rate). The update also adds localization for Korean (joining Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Swedish, and Traditional Chinese) and makes localized documentation a separate download, thus reducing the size of the Snapz Pro X download significantly. A number of annoying bugs have been fixed, including problems Snapz Pro X would cause when taking screenshots of X11 applications, a conflict with SpellCatcher X, and problems with capturing full-screen applications like games (and possibly Keynote presentations). And, in a welcome change, Snapz Pro X now defaults to overwriting screenshots if you enter the same name as an existing screenshot; this eases the process of replacing bad screenshots. Registered users who purchased directly from Ambrosia can upgrade for free; if you received a licensed copy of Snapz Pro X with your Mac, you can upgrade to 1.0.7 for $19. It's a 4.1 MB download.

Removing Photos from iPhoto
Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.
If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.
If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...
If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.
