I tried this plugin and it works great!  It really does make sending pictures easier.  Give it a try….

A little about the plugin:

 

iPhoto2Gmail is a project I worked on because I often found myself trying to walk family members through the process of exporting and resizing pics from their iPhoto library in order to gmail them to others.   I realized that the multi-step process was a little cumbersome compared to most tasks on a Mac. I used this as an excuse to get my feet wet with Cocoa and all the neat new Xcode features.   This is the result… so far

 

It is still a very early piece of software, probably has many bugs, and is rough around the edges. I hope to improve on it and that it will be useful to some folks. © 2006 Juan I. Leon

Full Screen in Quicktime December 7, 2006

Full screen for free

Reader Rudy Grasso would like to get something for nothing and writes:

In one of your magazine issues you explained how to get Full Screen when viewing a movie in QuickTime. When I recently upgraded to QuickTime 7.01, full screen will not open anymore. Is there a way to have QuickTime 7 play in full screen without paying for the pro version?

Sure. Launch Script Editor and enter this:

Save the script as an application. Now open the movie you want to view in full screen in QuickTime Player. Double-click the AppleScript application you just created and your movie will play at full screen.

Recently I came across a great video via http://www.digg.com. I can’t embed google video for some reason, so the link is below. Here is the description in the authors own words..

“This is a demonstration of what the Mac OS can do, particularly if you are a new user to the Mac or if you’ve never had one and are wondering what it can do for you or if it is something you would like to try.” – Seanadb – http://www.beggs.ca/
