TMO Quick Tip - Quick Look: View Multiple Images

by , 7:30 AM EDT, May 7th, 2008

Leopard's Quick Look feature is great for checking out images without having to launch any application first, and it's also great for checking out multiple images at the same time.


Quick Look is also available from the contextual menu.

To view more than one picture at a time with Quick Look, do this:

  • Select the images you want to see, and then press Space, Control-click on the image group and choose Quick Look x Items (x is the number of items you selected). Since I selected nine pictures, I'll see Quick Look 9 Items.

  • Click the Index Sheet button to see all of the images.
  • You'll see only one image in the Quick Look window at first, so click the Index Sheet button at the bottom of the window to see all of the pictures at the same time.


Quick Look's Index Sheet view.

This is an easy and fast way to view several pictures at once since you don't have to launch other applications like Preview or Photoshop to see your digital gems.
