Previewing Your Images

The second palette down on the left side of the Browser is designed to give you a larger preview of the thumbnail images that you click on in the main window. Although the Preview palette looks like a one-trick pony, here are a few hidden little features that can make it a much more useful tool.

Bigger previews are just a double-click away: The default size for the Preview palette is fairly small, but you can make it much larger by double-clicking—not on the tab labeled Preview, but instead on the little tab labeled Folders. This collapses (hides) the Folders palette so that only its tab is visible, expanding the viewing area of the Preview palette automatically (as seen in the middle capture). If you need the preview even bigger, then double-click on the Metadata tab at the bottom left of the File Browser to collapse it, expanding the Preview palette even more (as shown far right). This works particularly well when you’re viewing a portrait-oriented photo (tall rather than wide). However, when you have a photo in landscape orientation, to get the preview much larger, you also have to expand the width of the Preview palette by clicking anywhere along the divider bar between it and the main thumbnail window and dragging to the right.
