10.4: Apply image corrections to pictures in Preview Apps
Tiger only hintPlaying around with a JPEG image in Preview for 10.4, I found a new menu item called Image Correction in the Tools menu. Not really a hint, obviously, but a feature that maybe no one looks for -- personally, I never went into the menu items in Preview.

[robg adds: Yes, it's a main menu item and we don't usually cover such things here. But given that myself and two others I'd asked had missed this new feature, I thought it worth sharing. It looks much like the correction tools in iPhoto.]

Also available, if you have the developers stuff installed, and really cool, is the "Core Image Fun House.app" located in in "/Developer/Applications/Graphic Tools"

Have fun!

Where would one find the Developers "stuff" to install? Is it included with the Tiger Installation disks?

yes, the Developer Tools are part of the Tiger Installation Customize options, I believe.

Nope - a *separate package* called "Xcode Tools" at the root of the DVD.

As a long time Photoshop vet I don't usually use tools like the ones included with iPhoto or Preview but the Sepia slideer in Preview is excellent! Thanks for this great tip.

This is one that doesn't show up in any menu.

While in full screen mode (command-shift-f) you can push space to pause the image and a translucent toolbar appears. One of the items is for producing a contact sheet, there are keyboard equivalents, pressing i will also show the contact sheet.

That is beautifully cool, especially the sliding transition from single image to 'contact sheet' ... great for reviewing images before committing to iPhoto, and for going through images with clients.

Thanks for encouraging a closer look at what's in the new Preview - it's certainly going to get more usage here than the older versions ...
