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.)

 
 

SpamSieve 1.2.1 Adds Email Clients

Send Article to a Friend

SpamSieve 1.2.1 Adds Email Clients -- Apple has made a big deal out of the spam filtering method that its Mail program uses to weed out unwanted email. Now, a similar technology is available for a variety of email clients with Michael Tsai's SpamSieve 1.2.1. Put simply, SpamSieve learns to recognize the particular spam you receive based on the spam and legitimate messages you use to train it. What's especially nice about SpamSieve is that all the training and dealing with spam takes place in your email program, rather than in an unfamiliar interface. The latest version adds support for Eudora 5.2 and Emailer (SpamSieve also supports Entourage, Mailsmith, and PowerMail), decodes Base64 and quoted-printable text parts, and offers better logging and manipulating of the corpus of words that it uses. SpamSieve 1.2.1 is a free upgrade for owners of previous versions; new registrations cost $20 shareware, so you can test it before paying. SpamSieve requires Mac OS X 10.1 or later, and is a 1.4 MB download. [JLC]
