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.)

 
 

Internet Config 1.3

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Config 1.3 -- Peter Lewis and Quinn have released Internet Config 1.3, their public domain Internet Configuration System that centralizes a number of your Internet preferences, such as your email address and preferred Web browser. New in Internet Config 1.3, along with a few bug fixes, are windows for the World Wide Web, where you can set your home page and background color, and for Firewalls, where you set all sorts of firewall and proxy settings. It's worth picking up a copy of Internet Config 1.3 at some point, but users of 1.2 aren't missing out on any amazing functionality. Look for Internet Config to appear on Info-Mac mirror sites in a day or two - it was just uploaded Monday. In the meantime, it's available at the URL below. [ACE]
