I'm not sure how you got all images open on the desktop, but I can't say I like the idea. Try this: With the folder open, type Ctrl+A to select all images, the right click one of them & select Preview. You should get a slideshow of all the images.
I think you ought to get your images off the memory card before you start to mess with them, personally, and for that purpose the Lightroom import is as good a thing as any.
Thanx so much Chris for your tips
Regarding having all images open on the desktop.....the reason being is that i can vet the images from the "big picture" displayed of my recent overseas trip. Being a Landscape freak i can see which images are involved with a panorama stitch [up to 10 images ] or is simply a portrait landscape. Having taken numerous shots of say an old car for mono purposes i can select which one i prefer looking at all images concerned at once. A slideshow will not do the above as well unfortunately. I then earmark the images i want and send to L/R. Prior to doing any of the above all are saved to remote HDD and also disc.
With your kind advice above i am now able to control what i want to do...rather than the other way around.
