I'm new to Mac. Still learning.

What I want to do is to browse my images of about 1400 and delete the OOF/bad ones the fastest way?

In windows, I just use Image browser and I can just click zoom and it will zoom in and I can click the "X" button to delete it. And use the arrow key to go to the next image.

What is the best option to do this in Mac?

if you mean through the finder window and not a photo program. you can press space bar to quick look and press the down arrow to go through them with out "opening" them if that makes sense.(it will when you try it) oh just use iphoto, go through them and flag the rejects and through them out in one shot.

What do you use for editing photos? If lightroom, it's much easier to quickly go through photos.

There's Picasa. It will search your HDD for photos and will give you a good idea of what you have. Make a backup before starting though.

Bridge is the easiest, but basically command + delete and your picture will be in the trash, command shift delete is emptying the trash

I sometimes use finder and press the spacebar to preview the image. However I've noticed that the colors are way off in preview.
For actual deleting of images though I use LR and set them as 'rejected' and delete them from disk after I go through the set. Its a little harder in finder because you have to right-click and send to trash. Is there a shortcut for that?
