Leopard "Preview" Gallery - Part IV (Preview)UPDATE (8/16/2006): Added a screenshot of the Customize Toolbar sheet.
Yes, we've all been waiting for the Preview screenshots. I could sense your anticipation… well, not really. Anyway, here they are:
Yay for Mail-like sweet-looking interfaces! I love 'em and although loads of people do hate them (inconsistent or some shit like that), it sure beats turning Preview into a brushed metal junkyard. Speaking of brushed metal, methinks that it's going to do an Exit Stage Left in Leopard because Automator seems to have lost its metallic apperance and has instead adopted the Unified Title Bar look (more on that later). In any case, for any application to totally get rid of brushed metal is a big step. Would I be wishing for too much if I asked for Finder to see the same light?
The File menu!
The Tools menu!
A PDF and its Inspector open.
On special request, here's a shot of the Customize Toolbar sheet.
Tiger's Preview is an extremely hard benchmark to surpass, because, honestly, Preview in Tiger has everything that you'd wish for and then some. Leopard's Preview does not add any significant features but does sport a new snazzy interface and since that's not brushed metal, I am happy. For the record, the Slideshow feature does sport the file's name on top and a little rounded rectangle around the current image you're viewing in the Exposé-like thing it has, but I didn't think they were exciting enough to deserve screenshots (and considering the fact that Inspector palettes got individual attention, you see how little excitement Preview's slideshow feature offered).
