Say hello to advanced red-eye and retouching tools

Sometimes I wonder about the people who discover advanced tools hidden deep within software. Take this week's tip for instance, which involves iPhoto 6 and its photo editing tools.

Somehow, Rob Griffeths of Macworld Magazine discovered that if you hold down a magical combination of three keys *before* choosing either the red-eye or retouching brush while in the Editing mode of iPhoto 6, you get a much more powerful tool for each. In addition to that, he discovered modifier keys that let you toggle between these hidden tools.
