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.)

 
 

Pear Note 3.1

Send Article to a Friend

Useful Fruit Software has released Pear Note 3.1 with full support for Retina displays on Macs. The multimedia note-taking app adds support for using images (like photos of slides in a lecture!) in the just-updated Pear Note for iOS 2.1, and it now saves documents in an updated format that can be read by the iOS app. For older Pear Note documents that include images, Useful Fruit suggests opening and re-saving them so they work properly with the iOS app. The release also fixes a bug with saving that caused slides to move back, an issue where shared documents with special characters displayed improperly when hosted on Dropbox, and bugs associated with Spotlight results and the Quick Look generator. Finally, the Mac App Store version is now sandboxed. ($39.99 new, free update, 4.6 MB, release notes)
