A Digital Photographer's Worst Nightmare

If you are shooting film, you have to protect that film. You make sure it is completely rewound before removing it from the camera.

iPhoto plugins updated

Keyword Assistant has been updated for compatibility with iPhoto versions up to 6.02. This is good news, as I had been forced to use iPhoto’s awkward keyword handling since updating to 6.02.

In related news, FlickrExport has also been updated and now supports Intel Macs.
