How to delete images on iMac

I am a photographer and have been used to a PC to scan my images and delete them. I can't find how to do it easily on my iMac. I can take 1000's of images on some shoots and with my PC I was able to visually scan the images for clarity and delete those that didn't work with 2 keystrokes. How do I do this on the iMac? Dragging them manually into the trash can seems a long way around.
Are there any photographers that require a similar work flow. Could you let me know what you do.

Hope you can help,

hold down the command key (apple key) + mouse click on the files you don't want. then either drag them all to the trash or do command + delete.

that being said, i would highly recommend using a photo management software like aperture or lightroom. for fast image viewing in a folder like you're doing i'm fond of phoenix slides which you can quickly delete from too.
