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.)

 
 

iPhoto 7.1.3 Fixes Books and Cards

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released iPhoto 7.1.3 with a one-line description, "This update addresses issues with wire-bound books and cards." The update is available via Software Update or as a standalone 16.9 MB download.

Needless to say, I recommend you download this essential update right away, even if you don't plan to print wire-bound books or cards, and even if you're not planning on using iPhoto in the near future. If these "issues" are actually psychological problems, who knows what sort of a rampage iPhoto could embark upon, although I would personally worry about the permissions of your photo thumbnails; iPhoto has long been overly possessive about those files.
