Spacebar Magnifies Photos in iPhoto '08

In iPhoto '08, you can choose whether double-clicking on a photo will edit it or magnify it. I prefer my double-clicks to edit photos, but every now and then it's nice to magnify a photo. To do that, even when double-click is set to edit, just select the photo and press the Spacebar.

Free Flier Fixes Flummoxing Font Frustrations -- If your fonts are giving you a headache, Sharon Zardetto Aker's "Take Control of Font Problems in Mac OS X" is the ultimate resource. But if you're not convinced you need the entire ebook, go ahead and download a free one-page flier that includes Sharon's font troubleshooting flow chart. It provides a clear process you can follow to hone in on and solve many non-specific font problems (by non-specific, we mean problems for which Sharon doesn't provide the exact solution in the ebook). The flier is covered by a Creative Commons license that allows you to copy, distribute, and display it in its original form for non-commercial purposes, so you're welcome to post printed copies and give it to anyone who may appreciate its troubleshooting advice. Enjoy! (If you've already downloaded the flier, we recommend downloading again to get the new version that we've tweaked for increased crispness.)
