Quick Full Screen Preview

To quickly view an image full screen from the Finder, select it and press Option+Command. Better yet, you can select multiple images, then press Option+Command, and then use the arrow keys to flip between them. This also works with other kinds of files, such as word processing documents, if a preview is available.

    Running Mountain Lion 10.8.3, and pressing Option+Command does NOT bring picture files full screen here.

      What kind of file are you selecting? Are you in the Finder? Have you perhaps turned off the default keyboard shortcuts for Spotlight in System Preferences, Keyboard, Keyboard Shortcuts?

    You’re supposed to use Option + Spacebar. Not command key :)

    If you want multiple pictures, select them while pressing command and the use Option + Spacebar to preview in fullscreen.

      Yes, Option + Spacebar works; Opt + Command does not.
