Preview functionality

I have recently bought a new Mac that has OS X 10.4 installed. With it came a new version of Apple's Preview.app - and my problems with it!

I'm used to selecting a group of photos by opening them in Preview, then dragging the photos from a drawer in Preview.app to a new folder. The old one gets backed up and the new one, with selected photos in it - is the one I use for retouching in Photoshop.

Now, with 10.4 and a new Preview.app I can't drag the photos to a new folder anymore. Or can I? Is there any way to restore the lost functionality somehow? Or if someone would suggest a workaround?

Doesn't anyone use Preview.app anymore? :confused:

Preview was updated with the latest update? That's the first I've heard about it. I've also heard that you have always been able to do the dragging etc. and that it's a very nice feature, so I doubt they'd remove it. Try logging out and back in and trying again?

Updated from 10.3 that is. I have 10.3 running on other machine and Preview works fine there, but on a new MacBook of mine that came with 10.4 installed, dragging pics from a drawer to another folder does nothing - it simply poofs the image from the drawer and no file copying takes place.

Not on a Mac but you could drag the proxy icon from the title bar (if it's the currently selected image) or (and I can't test this) try Option-Dragging?
