Instant Slideshow in Mac OS X
I often get photos cd from PC friends but they are most of the time not convenient to look at. Importing the whole cd into iPhoto just for showing a quick slideshow is not the easiest thing to do and definitely won't convince your PC friends that Macs are user-friendly. A great way of doing it is by clicking "Command-A" to select all the pictures in the folder or the cd (or simply selecting the files), right-clicking on one of the picture and choosing "Slideshow". It doesn't even lauch any software and you then get the option of "Index Sheet", "Fit to screen" and "Add to iPhoto". It is very useful, quick and easily accessible.
