MacVoices #16158: Adam Engst and Josh Centers Take Control of Apple’s Preview

Adam Engst  and Josh Centers  have a new Take Control book out that covers an application you already have. In Take Control of Preview, Adam and Josh look at the power of the Preview that goes way beyond just PDF viewing. They talk about how the book was the result of reader demand, how it can be used to annotate PDFs, tweak images, mark up and even digitally sign documents. With the same photo imaging engine used in iPhoto, alpha channel capabilities, scanner support and more, Preview might become your image editor of choice. Find out from Adam and Josh why Preview may not solve all your problems, but why it might become one of your most frequently used apps.
