Get Detailed iPhoto information on your photos

For our summer vacation my parents bought a new camera and we wanted to test it against 2 other cameras. So we headed to the beach with the 3 cameras and took the same shoots. Long story short I came back to the beach house and uploaded all the shots to iPhoto. I then wanted to see all the information about each shot so I knew which camera too the best shoots.

Reset iPhones Cell Connection

A week or 2 ago I went to the At&t Store in Greenville to complain about the lousy coverage I have gotten on my iPhone and my wife's blackberry. The AT&T rep stated that I should be resetting the phone at least once a week if not every day.

I really did not expect it to make any [...]

Batch Rename Your Photos Right in iPhoto

I have been using iphoto and loving it for some time now. I have tagged and rated just about every picture i have taken thats worth keeping.

Well I can do it and it can be done easily right inside iPhoto. I know that there are dozens of ways to rename a file, like use automator. But why go through opening another program to do it?

iPhoto to Face Book

Not many people know but i have decided to jump on the Social Network band wagon. I have selected Facebook.com because it just looks better than myspace.com. The main reason for me wanting to get on one of these sites is so I can post pictures of me and my family. I get real tired of e-mailing them to so many different people, so all I have to do is get Facebook up and tell my friends and family to look there. Well i came across this little application to help me put my iphoto pics up with very little work.
