Macworld: Feature: Tiger Secrets: Preview, Page 1

While you’re sorting through folders of images or PDFs, why not also add keywords to them so they’re easier to find with Spotlight later? Preview makes this easy. Drag the images or PDF files you’d like to tag into Preview and then select Tools: Get Info (or just press Command-I). In the Document Info window, click on the Keywords tab. Click on Add and then enter the keyword you’d like to use. If you have a group of files open, you can then simply click on the next image or PDF in the drawer. The window will change to reflect the selected file’s information. When you’re done, save the files. The next time you perform a Spotlight search, you’ll be able to use the keywords to home in on your target.—RG
