    How do I get photos to open in Preview in their Actual Size? I have checked the Preferences to open photos in Actual Size but it still zooms out leaving me to have to zoom in. I have also checked off 'Respect image and screen DPI for scale.'

    Also during slideshows, how can I get the photos to be viewed in actual size? Is there a better app out there designed at what I'm getting at here?

    Thanks.

    Did you even read what I did? I've already checked that which had no effect.

    Usually I would have to press command O on every single photo to show the actual size. But now it seems that I only have to press it once on one photo and every photo opens in actual size so mystery solved.
