    Hi, i have recently made the change over from windows to mac...

    I understand that Mac Preview is the standard image viewer... however i don't like the way that it does not allow you to flick through all of the images in a certain folder, like Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (default windows image viewer) does...

    When you open a image in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and hit the LEFT or RIGHT buttons on the keyboard, the program flicks to the next image in the folder which you opened the original image in...

    Can Mac Preview not do this... thanks in advance for your help...

    Click on a photo in the folder, hit space bar and then press left or right.

    What Mac OS X version do you use?
    QuickLook is the way to preview files without opening the associated application by just selecting the file(s) in Finder and pressing the SPACEBAR.
    Make the Most of Quick Look

    Highlight all the pictures, right (control) click on one of them and choose open. Then all of the pictures will load into preview and you can cycle through them.

    1. Open the folder of images.
    2. From Finder's View menu, choose as Cover Flow.

    In the Cover Flow view, Arrow keys will move thru list. You can also use the slider, and you can resize the view area by dragging the small box at lower middle of the view box.
