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.)

 
 

No TidBITS Issue on 26-Nov-07

Send Article to a Friend

As is our custom this time of year, we won't be publishing next week's emailed issue of TidBITS on 26-Nov-07 due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. And, honestly, we need a little rest after the recent release of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, the five "Take Control of... Leopard" titles that arrived the same day Leopard shipped, Jeff Carlson's book "iMovie '08 and iDVD '08 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide" (hitting stores in December), Adam's book "iPhoto '08 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide" (arriving in time for Macworld Expo in January 2008), and the various projects the other members of the staff are currently juggling.

However, we're creatures of habit, so don't be surprised if we continue to post articles or updates to the TidBITS Web site or to our staff blogs. Check back at the site or subscribe to the TidBITS RSS feed or Twitter stream to keep up with everything we're writing.
