12 Things You May Not Know You Can Do With Images In Mac Preview

Preview is a great tool for viewing image files. But you can do much more than just viewing. In addition to the annotation tools you may already be familiar with, you can also use Preview to export images into a different format, crop, resize and adjust colors. You can even import images from cameras or scanners.

    I thought I knew about Preview, but this was full of eye-openers. Another great, helpful video—thanks, Gary! 😃

    Great: Can one copy/paste the edited images on Preview such as annotated shapes, be them mask or magnified on to a photo in the photo app.

    Edward: If you are looking to markup a photo in photos with the Markup tools, you can do that right in the Photos app. No need to use Preview.

    Gary ....you are amazing! I agree 100% with Caro's comments. I use a lot of these features daily but WOW... you added some options ( especially in the Annotate menu) that I never knew about. ( who reads documentation, eh?) I had used it to add my signature to Preview for using in letters or PDFs. But that was it. FAB-BU-LUS. THANKS. ( Some times you don't want to open a full fledged image editor to do a quick change... Preview is grrrrreat.
