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.)

 
 

OmniWeb 4.5 Released

Send Article to a Friend

OmniWeb 4.5 Released -- The Omni Group has released OmniWeb 4.5 , a major update of its Web browser for Mac OS X. The Omni Group developers have tossed out the program's previous home-grown rendering engine in favor of Apple's WebCore and JavaScriptCore frameworks (which are in turn based on the open-source KDE project), the same technology underlying Safari. The result is faster and more consistent page loading and better support for Web standards, while enabling the OmniWeb developers to concentrate on unique features such as voice-controlled navigation, history searching, and extensive security and filtering options (for example, not displaying images that come from servers known for pushing ads). OmniWeb 4.5 is a 4.3 MB download . A license to use the full version costs $30, but the update is free for those who have licensed OmniWeb 4.x versions. [JLC]
