Mac Tips: Preview Image, Video, Document, etc. Files Fullscreen
Here is a very simple little Mac tip that can preview any image, video or just plain file in fullscreen. Select a bunch of images and that fullscreen preview becomes a slideshow. A brilliant little touch baked into Apple’s OS X.
And, here we go…
• Select any single item in the Finder — image, movie, pdf, txt, numbers, etc file — and hold the Option key and then press the Spacebar — fullscreen preview.
• Select any number of images — other file types work, notably movies — in the Finder and then hold the Option key and press the Spacebar — instant fullscreen slideshow!
In fact, you can create a multimedia slideshow that includes both images and movies.
That said, just for giggles, I included a Keynote presentation stack into a multi-file image + movie fullscreen preview slideshow and only the first slide displayed. However, if you press the down arrow while the Keynote stack is displayed, you can show subsequent slides.
