Re: pics

Yes, I had checked the properties before and the only info offered was the
location they were in and date of creation.  I checked again anyway to see
if I missed anything.  It says the type is a Quick Time picture.  And when I
said it was created May of 2002, I was correct, but this time I noticed they
were "modified" in 1997.

The only reason I cared about finding out where or how I got them was that
that might lead to some sort of listing so I could make sense of them.  As
they are they are a half gig of wasted space.  I know I'm guilty of hiding
things in strange places on my hard drive every once in awhile, but normally
I recognize them.

If I could just view them as a slideshow or find a more fluid way of opening
them to see if I want to keep any, I would give them more of a look.  But QT
only gives a pic at a time -open file, find it, open, close - repeat.  A
real drag.  Meanwhile I have plenty of space on the hard drive so I don't
have to dump them.  They can sit for 2 more years.
