ShowPaths is a simple tool for Mac OS X whose sole function is to give you quick access to a file's path in a number of formats.

In typical use, you'll drag/drop a folder or file icon onto the ShowPaths icon, then hit Command-C (Copy), Command-Q (Quit), switch to the app where you need the path, and hit Command-V (Paste).

Simply drag/drop the folder(s) or file(s) onto the ShowPaths icon to get copy/paste access to a number of different paths that all lead to this file or folder.
