Edit any given iPhoto in another application Apps
I'm sure some people have found this, but if you wish to edit a photo from your iPhoto gallery in another application (such as Photoshop) without reassigning the iPhoto internal editor, it's quite easy to do. Just drag and drop the photo from iPhoto to the editor icon in your dock or wherever, and the image will open for editing in the selected application.

The joy of Cocoa?
Authored by: nagani on Jun 07, '02 11:50:43PM

I think this might be a general behavior for Cocoa applications. Try this: drag and drop a picture from a site you're browsing in OmniWeb to the dock icon of Photoshop (carbon), GraphicConverter (carbon), Preview (Cocoa), AppleWorks (carbon), BBEdit (carbon)(yes!)... et voila! Now, try that from IE, Netscape, Mozilla or whatever...

(Holding Command-Option down may help for some applications...)

Now, TextEdit and Tex-Edit Plus will not display the picture. WTF:-?

The joy of Cocoa - not?
Authored by: nagani on Jun 08, '02 12:11:28AM

I'm sorry, this doesn't work from Chimera which is a Cocoa application. So... forget about my assumption on Cocoa apps.

Anyone knows what the developers of iPhoto and OmniWeb did for this cool drag and drop feature to happen?

Chimera is not a good test
Authored by: rv8 on Jun 09, '02 09:35:07AM

I'm not sure we should use Chimera as a test of whether something works in Cocoa apps. For example, I can't get Services to work in my version of Chimera. So, should I conclude that Services don't work in Cocoa apps? No, I think the proper conclusion is that Chimera is an app in very early development, and some things simply aren't working properly yet.

simply double click on the image...

All you have to do is open iPhoto preferences (1.1.1 version) and under "Double-clicking image opens them in", select "other" and choose Photoshop or whatever you wish.

Perhaps this wasn't in the earlier version?
