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.

iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iSight See Updates -- Apple last week released updates to three of its iLife '05 applications, providing a small but welcome collection of bug fixes. iPhoto 5.0.2 (a 5.5 MB download) gains stability and improved performance, especially on PowerPC G3-based Macs. It also allows resizable thumbnails in book layout mode and improves slideshow performance. iMovie HD 5.0.2 (a 2.7 MB download) addresses audio and video synchronization, adds better support for pass-through devices (such as analog-to-digital converters), and improves exporting HDV (high definition) video back to the camera. It also seems to fix a bug where titles would disrupt DV video clips, and better handles iMovie 4 projects that used speed-adjusted clips. iDVD 5.0.1 (a 2.6 MB download) improves stability and compatibility with iMovie HD and with iPhoto slideshows. Lastly, Apple updated the iSight software to version 1.0.3 (a 1.1 MB download), which improves the audio recording capabilities of the tiny video camera. All four updates are available via Software Update, or as separate downloads. [JLC]
