Two Quick Links

Really just two pointers for people who work a lot on their computers, don’t we all?

First, and excellent article on becoming an email ninja. This was written by Leo Babauta of the Zen Habits blog, but is actually a guest post by him to Tim Ferris’s blog over at Four Hour Work Week. If you are suffering from that avalanche of email traffic, you owe it to yourself to read this one.

Second, of importance to Mac people, Adobe has finally announced their new version of Photoshop Elements for the Mac. It has been out for a while now for Windows, but us Mac people haven’t had an upgrade in a few years. Photoshop Elements 6.0 will be demoed at next week’s MacWorld, and it looks like general release will be in the second quarter of this year. This is great news for all the people for who the full version of Photoshop is overkill and too complicated but for who iPhoto and other programs just don’t go far enough.

On a side note, if you are one of those people who needs some basic photo manipulation for the Mac, give Image Tricks from BeLight Software a try. It won’t do a lot of the heavy lifting, but I find it quite useful for just a quick resize, crop, or minor adjustment.
