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.)

 
 

StyleWriter Driver Info

Send Article to a Friend

There has been some incorrect information flying around, and I may have even aided it in a posting I made to the Info-Mac digest, so let me see if I can explain what is really happening with the new StyleWriter driver, 7.2.2. People have been having some problems with the new driver, and although it's certainly possible that those problems are related to bugs in the driver or conflicts with existing software, other problems may be due to the fact that using version 7.2.2 of the driver can be a bit confusing if you are using system 6.0.7 or 6.0.8.

If you use System 7, you shouldn't have any problems. If you use 6.0.7 then you must upgrade Print Monitor and Backgrounder to their System 7 versions. If you use System 6.0.8, you should already have these files installed. The System 7 versions can be found on a set of 6.0.8 System disks or on the System 7 Printing Tools disk. StyleWriter driver version 7.2.2 also works with the versions of Print Monitor and Backgrounder that recently shipped with StyleWriter driver version 7.2.

Since version 7.2.2 of the StyleWriter driver makes the StyleWriter print faster than the previous version of the driver, try using it if you can. Those of you on the Internet can get the driver via anonymous FTP on ftp.apple.com as:

dts/mac/sys.soft/imaging/stylewriter-7-2-2.hqx

It is also available on the System 7 Tune-Up disk, but I gather that the Tune-Up installer will refuse to work on a System 6 disk (not too surprising, consider that it is a tune-up for System 7). However, if you can get your hands on that disk, all you have to do is look in the Tuner Parts folder and snag the StyleWriter driver from there.
