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.)

Qualcomm announced today that it is selling Now Utilities to Power On Software, creators of ACTION Files. Like Now Super Boomerang, Action FILES enhances file access within Open and Save dialog boxes (see "Get a Piece of the ACTION Files" in TidBITS 434). Power On will continue to sell and provide support for Now Utilities, and it's likely that components of Now Utilities will be rolled into Power On's upcoming ACTION Utilities. Owners of Now Super Boomerang, which hasn't been updated to work under Mac OS 8, will be directed to ACTION Files. Terms of the purchase were not disclosed.
