Pace Your Reading or Present a Slideshow in Mac OS X Preview

Turn your Mac into a big, beautiful e-book reader, thanks to the wonders of Preview.

It likely comes as no big news to you that you can open images of various flavors and PDFs in Preview (Applications Preview). But it never fails to surprise people that they’ve somehow managed to overlook the fact that you can hop into Full Screen mode (View Full Screen) and view these images and pages without all the clutter of anything else you happen to have open to distract you from their stunning Quartz-rendered visage.

Just as iDVD’s Full Screen mode transforms a Mac into a little movie theater, so too does Preview’s Full Screen view turn your 23-inch Apple Cinema Display—or, more likely, your iBook’s 12-inch screen—into a rather nice e-book, as shown in Figure 1-12.
