    Hi everyone :)

    Just a quick question regarding Preview Version 5.0.3 (504.1)
    I am trying to figure out how to use the previous and next buttons in the application.

    The problem is when I create a folder and add photographs to the folder and want to view my photos in large format one after the other.. The Next and previous buttons are grayed out and not usable.

    How do I use them? I never figured it out.

    Running Mac OS X Version 10.6.8 2 Ghz Intel Core i7 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3

    You can easily preview photos full screen with Quick Look. Select all the photos you want to view, then press the space bar. Click the arrows to expand to full screen and scroll though the photos with the left and right arrow keys. To view all photos in Preview, select them all, then right-click and Open With > Preview.

    Simple enough I didn't realize I had to select all to open, I figured it would just go to the next photo in the folder kinda like windows did. Yet all works perfect now using your method! Thanks
