I take a lot of insect photos that will need to be severely winnowed. Insects move around very fast and are often on flowers or other plant parts that are also moving in the breeze. I might want to save only a few out of every 10 or 20 images.

To see which images I want to discard, I have to see the large-size version of the image. But using ⌘Delete in this view is very, very slow. It can take ten seconds for an image to disappear. Switching back to thumbs and then deleting and then switching to the next image in full size is even slower.

So I figured out a counterintuitive way to go through a few hundred photos and mark the ones to delete. I use Favorites. First I clear Favorites, maybe making a keyword or Description notation. Next I go through a batch of new images using the period key to mark images for deletion. Finally, I can mass delete in Favorites by selecting all and using ⌘Delete.

Alternatively, I could set up a shortcut with a single key trigger to add a delete keyword or item in the Description.

If anyone's found a better way to do this, I'd love to read the tip.
