    This is a simple thing probably, that I just can't find referenced anywhere -
    If a folder of images is opened, on either the Mac Mini or Macbook I own,
    and an image is previewed, the previous-next buttons are grayed out. I
    assume these buttons are for going back and forth through the images in
    the folder similar to Windows Picture Viewer (which would be nice) but I
    can't get them to activate.

    you have to open all the images you wish to view in Preview. otherwise use Quick Look and arrow in the direction of the next file (left/right for icon view and up/down for list, column and cover flow view).
