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.)

DealBITS Drawing: Win a Copy of IPNetMonitorX

Send Article to a Friend

Networking is one of those topics that generates a vast number of questions. How fast is my Internet connection? What IP addresses are in use on my network? How can I improve the performance of my wireless network by adjusting the position and orientation of my AirPort base station? Is my ISP on a DNS blacklist that's preventing my mail from getting through? Are there any services running on my Mac (and creating a security vulnerability) that I didn't realize were active? Is my server crashing regularly in the middle of the night?

There are a variety of tools that can answer some of these questions, particularly if you're extremely comfortable at the Unix command line, but if you're a Mac user who prefers a graphical interface, a better option is Sustainable Softworks' IPNetMonitorX. Run by networking guru Peter Sichel, Sustainable Softworks has built up a reputation for creating networking tools that look deep into the guts of the Mac OS to answer all the above questions and many more.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of two copies of IPNetMonitorX. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on IPNetMonitorX, so be sure to enter at the DealBITS page. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy.
