    It lets you view/do simple edits on images. To do a quick preview of a file or photo etc all you have to do click on the image/icon and press the "space bar".

    Great little app from Apple, more expansive app for PDF's called Skim, it's also free.

    I still don't know why a simple feature of scrolling through all images in a folder is missing in Preview. How hard could it be?

    And before some smart prick tells me I can select all files and open them and then scroll through them, no thank you, I don't wanna do that.

    Quicklook, or coverflow.

    Preview is an application. Not a part of the Finder.

    Finder provides this feature. Coverflow and hit space on images you want to see. No reason to add it to Preview as that is duplicating functionality.

    All valid responses, but resizing cover flow is a pain. Windows has a much better implementation of this.

    You contradict yourself. This feature is not missing, the implementation of it is just different than in Windows. Who's the prick?

    Then use Windows.
