Most people who work with Macs are familiar with Quick Look, a feature introduced in Leopard that allows you to view the contents of your documents and images at nearly full size level without needing to launch the associated application. But did you know that Quick Look has a Slide Show feature? Using Quick Look, you can cycle through and display selected images in full screen view on our screen for about 4 minutes each. The cycle will continue until the slide show is terminated.
