    Hi all, How do i navigate or move to a parent folder on finder.
    I mean for example if i right click and do the show file option in Iphoto it open me a folder selecting the file or the photo i wanted to see.
    Now if i want to move to the parent folder of the folder that contained this photo how do i move?
    My left pane does not show any tree kind of structure or a button on the menu like the Explorer on windows, how can i move between random folder?:(

    I don't have Leopard but I can vouch for the fact this works in earlier versions of OSX. Hold COMMAND and click on the folder title. Does it give you a drop down list of parent folder(s)? For what it's worth, this same technique in Safari shows you all previous pages for the open tab.

    In addition to the above post, you can use cmd+up arrow to move up in the tree. Finder also has a Tree button that you can put on the toolbar that'll show you where you're at in the tree and let you select parents folders.
