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.)

Thanks to the many people who either sent me Eudora plug-in files that provide a simple interface within Eudora's Settings dialog for changing the settings I talked about in TidBITS-271 or who told me about Wagner's Eudora Prefs, a single plug-in that provides an interface for a number of less commonly changed settings in Eudora's Settings dialog. My major complaint with Wagner's Eudora Prefs is that it also changes the quote character to a non-standard one, and it does so in a way that changing it back requires using ResEdit. I've also edited Gilbert Rankin's <gilbert@netcom.com> message splitting submission slightly and uploaded it for FTP if you'd like to see how he provided an interface to Eudora's message splitting settings.
