Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

 
 

Security Update 2011-006 (Snow Leopard and Snow Leopard Server)

Send Article to a Friend

To bring the security fixes from Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion back to 10.6 Snow Leopard, Apple has released Security Update 2011-006 (Snow Leopard) and Security Update 2011-006 (Snow Leopard Server). The security vulnerabilities addressed are many and varied, with numerous affected components. Plus, Apple has updated a number of root SSL/TLS certificates. We recommend these updates for anyone still running Snow Leopard; it’s easiest to let Software Update install the correct version for you. (Free, 136.28 MB for Snow Leopard / 144.91 MB for Snow Leopard Server)

Oiks, just realized haven't updated since 10.6.1 - can I go straight to this, or do I need to update incrementally?

Absolutely - Apple is very good about this. You want the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Combo Update 1.1, and once you've installed that, you can install Security Update 2011-006.

I think if you run Software Update, it will just give you the right stuff automatically.
