Could be common knowledge, but I just found this out tonight and wanted to share.



Before, when I wanted to import a picture from an email into iPhoto, I would save the picture, then drag it to iPhoto.

    An even easier way to import photos into iPhoto is to press and hold the 'Save' button and when the list of photos appears scroll to the botton and select 'Add to iPhoto'.
