Quicklook in Open & Save boxes

Recommended Posts

In Leopard, Apple added a Media tab to the side panel, providing quick access to iPhoto library from within open and save dialogue boxes.


By opening an event from your iPhoto library, shown in all system wide save and open windows and then hitting the space bar when any photo or video in the library is highlighted, you can view that selection in the full area beneath the events list and navigate forwards and backwards through the library using the arrow keys, left and right.


Hitting Return or Enter selects the current file and opens or saves it, depending on the dialogue box you have open, which is especially handy for uploading multiple selections to Wordpress or Flickr, for example, without having to drag and drop from iPhoto or even open the application at all, just to get at one or two images or video clips.
