Quick Look and Slideshow, which complement each other, are masterpieces of Leopard.
Quick Look, which cannot be opened at the same time with Slideshow, is known to be the simplified version of Slideshow. Though so, Slideshow in Leopard, that comes with better resolution, should not be completely buried under the trees. In this article, I will discuss some of the techniques to open your Leopard Quick Look and your Slideshow, that is hidden under Quick Look, at ease.
As I’ve just said, Slideshow is well hidden under the Quick Look. Hovering your mouse long enough on top of the eye icon, which is the button for activating Quick Look, would definitely unveil the fact that Slideshow is the alternate version of Quick Look. Therefore, holding modifier key Option change the tool icon from an eye into our familiar Slideshow button.
In your Leopard Finder contextual menu, which can be activated by Control-Click-ing, Slideshow menu is nowhere to be seen. However, by pressing modifier key Option, you could see the Slideshow menu appears replacing the Quick Look menu.
As we all know, Quick Look can be activated and also deactivated by either using keystrokes Command-Y or using single Space button. Slideshow, which is actually complement of Quick Look, can be activated/deactivated by using keystrokes Command-Option-Y, which is quite similar to keystrokes for Quick Look.
