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.)

 
 

Netscape 3.0 Ships

Send Article to a Friend

Netscape 3.0 Ships -- In what might be the most anticlimactic product release of the summer, Netscape shipped the "final" version Netscape Navigator 3.0 today, after about five months of beta releases. The download package is 3.5 (binary) to 5 MB (binhexed), and naturally Netscape's FTP sites are currently overloaded, so you might want to wait a few days before downloading the release. Navigator 3.0 includes Java capability, LiveAudio and QuickTime plug-ins, support for new Netscape-only HTML tags for multi-column text, and a host of other enhancements, partly at the cost of a 7 MB to 9 MB RAM allocation. Netscape is hyping its Live3D and CoolTalk Navigator plug-ins, but they don't appear to be available for the Macintosh. Also, the final 3.0 version of Navigator Gold (with HTML authoring tools) isn't out yet, but I expect Netscape will release it soon. [GD]
