Have a system wide iPhoto browser in 10.4 Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

From the File menu, choose to Save As Plug-In and make sure you select Script Menu as the location.

Then, when you have the system wide Script menu activated (use Applescript Utility to do so), you will have the option to select an iPhoto Browser from which you can pick any photo(s) in your iPhoto Library without having to first launch iPhoto:

Could be useful for any OmniGraffle users who wish to insert images from iPhoto into OmniGraffle.

P.S. You can do the same for iTunes as well.

This is a good tip for end users, but how about adding a media browser into OG? Perhaps convieniently there's a framework out there does most of the work for you, since Apple have yet to open access to the palette used in iLife/iWork -- check out
iMedia Browser.

Unlike the Apple palette, in addition to photos, audio and video, you can also insert web links.

FWIW I've requested this feature, would others be interested in seeing this?
