    I'm just wondering, but suppose you get this CD full of jpegs. Like hundreds. And if you open it in the Finder, you just get a ton of jpeg icons staring at you, daring you to open them one by one to see the images. And nope, no nifty image viewing stuff here, let's suppose we're in Panther land, no Tigers prowling about those parts, folks.

    Now, let's suppose we do have iPhoto lurking in the Applications folder. Is it possible to view the jpegs in the CD with iPhoto directly? Or is select all, drag, and drop into iPhoto a requisite?

    iPhoto will want to import the photos. GraphicConverter works well for browsing through a CD, though.

    I use preview for these kinds of tasks. It helps to turn on the Next and Previous buttons on the toolbar though(see attached image)

    Just open one of the images.. go back to finder and <Command>+A to select all, then drag them into preview.
