Hi All,

In 10.4.11 on my iBook, preview is VERY slow. Even cropping the picture takes around 40 seconds. Is it just my iBook showing it's age, or is it a problem with Preview?

It is really annoying as there isn't really another light-weight photo app out there for my iBook.

Anything I can do?

Thanks.

It sounds like it might be a problem with your iBook. Any other Applications running slowly?
Which iBook is it? Is it a G3 or a G4 ?

Click Apple menu -> scroll down to: About This Mac and what does the About This Mac window say about its Processor and Memory ?

No quote of Memory. Tiger works best on a minimum of 768MB.

Hah, I am running Tiger on 320MB RAM!

Most other apps run at a level expected from machine like that, they ar eusab;e, however Preview is now only useful for looking at images, not editing.
