“Mac developers keep on pumping out cool programs that don’t cost a mint—some are even free! For the third year in a row, we’ve rounded up the best of these software bargains.”
MacWorld once again rounds up some good-to-great software deals. I love this kind of stuff – tweaking my computer so it does what I want when I want to. But I also love finding out what other people figure out, things I never would imagine, much less want to do.
Here’s one, not from the MacWorld article (don’t remember where I came across this): QuickImageCM, a contextual menu plugin. Right-click on one or more image files in the Finder (control-click for the one-button mice holdouts) and in the popup contextual menu, choose View Image…
... and QuickImage lets you view, rotate, crop, change levels, export, and further edit, all while still in the finder. I use this freeware all the time – a nice gift from its developer, Pixture Studios. I remembered where I learned about this, too – one of Derrick Story’s posts at MacDevCenter.
