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.)

 
 

IPNetRouter 1.6.1 Released

Send Article to a Friend

IPNetRouter 1.6.1 Released -- Sustainable Softworks has quietly released IPNetRouter 1.6.1, a minor bug fix that fixes a NAT (Network Address Translation) bug in the more significant release of 1.6 two weeks ago. IPNetRouter 1.6 improved the software router's port mapping and IP filtering capabilities and fixed some bugs. System requirements for IPNetRouter 1.6.1 remain minimal - Mac OS 7.5.3 or later (a Mac OS X version is in the works) with Open Transport 1.1.1 running on a 68030 or PowerPC-based Macintosh. Both updates are free to registered users.
