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.)

GraphicConverter 3.8 Adds AppleScript, Bug Fixes -- Lemke Software has updated GraphicConverter to version 3.8, adding AppleScript support to the PowerPC version and numerous tweaks to its multipurpose tool for working with image files. (GraphicConverter ranked high in a recent TidBITS poll of image editing applications; see "Poll Results: They Come in Colors" in TidBITS-516.) GraphicConverter's basic AppleScript support enables users to apply multiple modifications to files, such as resizing and changing the bit depth, thereby speeding up the production process. GraphicConverter 3.8 is a 1.9 MB download; registration for the shareware utility is $30 in Europe, $35 in the rest of the world. [JLC]
