Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

DealBITS Drawing: GarageSale 1.9

Send Article to a Friend

A year ago, we did a DealBITS drawing for the program GarageSale, from iwascoding.com. GarageSale is a Mac OS X application that acts as a front-end for posting auctions on eBay. It integrates with iPhoto and the iSight camera, provides decent text-editing tools, and can track your auctions after posting. It was one of our most popular drawings; apparently lots of TidBITS readers post auctions via eBay and dislike eBay's Web-based interface. If you fall into that group, but haven't yet tried GarageSale, you have another chance to win a copy of the latest version, which now features a slew of nicely designed templates that you can use and customize for free (apparently eBay charges if you want to use their designs) and a streamlined interface. GarageSale also now takes advantage of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, via a Dashboard widget for tracking active auctions, with a new Core Image-savvy Image Editor to improve pictures, by searching auction templates with Spotlight, and by using Automator to work with auctions and images.

Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on GarageSale (both the single-user and Family Pack license), so if you'd like a program to ease the process of posting an auction on eBay, be sure to enter at the DealBITS page linked below.
