    One of the things that irks me about Mac OS X is how, if you have a folder of images that you do not wish to be included in your iPhoto library, you have to manually change the icon size so as to gain bigger icon previews. On Windows XP, if a folder contains lots or mostly photos, Windows will recognise this and the folder view will change automatically to Thumbnail view, negating any need to manually manage icon size. Does Leopard offer this behavior at all?

    Thank you

    I'm actually surprised Leopard never had that to begin with.

    Thanks Kilamite!

    I was pretty surprised myself. After coughing up $2k on the wife for a MBP, I was forced to write a plugin or sleep on the couch. She used this feature religiously in XP and was quite disappointed when the Mac, I so fondly spoke of, did not have such a basic feature. Good thing apple provided the quicklook framework.
