I am just not getting familiar with the changes Lion has instituted with various native programs, and I am having some difficulty with Preview
. I have been using all of the previous versions of Preview up to and including Leopard. And I was always able to control which photos opened up on my screen. However in Lion, when I select a specific folder
with photos and open any or all photos in that folder, ALL or nearly ALL of my other photos start to appear on screen. This is an unforgivable feature of Preview that I have not been able to resolve.
As an example, I have opened various folders and selected different photos from each to review. However, when I close out of the application and open it again, all of the photos that I previously
selected come into view on my screen. Now this has led to a terribly embarrassing situation with my aunt. I visited my relatives recently and took a lot of photos and downloaded them onto my desktop in separate folders. So, when I opened the folders to show my aunt the photos, all of the previous photos also appeared, including some very private photos of my girlfriend which I had been reviewing the previous day. To say the least, my aunt was upset. There was nothing pornographic about the photos, but still my aunt is very conservative and I had no way to defuse the situation, except cursing to myself
to find out why the f**k apple put this feature in, and why i cannot remove it in the Preview preferences.
Any and all suggestions will be much appreciated.
I should mention that I am now in the Philippines and cannot easily call Apple tech support, so I am hoping someone here can help me. Thanks
