Drag and Drop Images Direct from Cover Flow View.

In recent Mac OS versions folders have Cover Flow viewing option: you can see previews of all files in the folder as an enlarged icon or slide.

You can quickly insert images from Cover Flow view to your iWork documents.

- Find the image you want to add to your iWork/Pages project by flicking through the slides;

- Click on it and drag to the open iWork document;

- When the cursor turns into a green button with white cross, let go. The image will plop into your document where you hover the arrow-cursor.

This drag-and-drop shortcut saves a lot of time when you want to find and select an image in a folder. Remember to name folders with key words that allow you to find folders themselves via Spotlight!


  1. I hope, they don't kick off the desktop version of iWork...
