Great Workflow Feature in Leopard
There are so many new features in Leopard that digesting each — and figuring out what’s eye candy and what’s actually useful — is going to take some time. Fortunately MacOSXHints has excellent tips for the Macintosh operating system and Leopard tips abound.
I was reading this tip about Apple’s Quick Look feature. I’d seen this capability of selecting a file in the Finder and hitting the keys “Command-Y” and a preview would instantly popup. Cool….but then I thought about it and was demonstrating a few features to a new user in the office when a light bulb went on!
This woman takes about 1,000 photos per day at markets domestically and internationally and often needs to preview dozens or hundreds of images. Using iView Multimedia, iPhoto and other tools in the past were cumbersome since many of these photos are trashed. A quick look at them would be a huge enabler using the (aptly named) Leopard Quick Look feature. Another tip tells how to select multiple files (e.g., photos) and have them popup in a slideshow view.
Sometimes this stuff is hard to visualize so I put together this quick tip screencast (1:08 in length):

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
