I tend to take a lot of pictures. About 1 in 20 are good. I have to go through and delete the 19 bad ones, which is a rather painstaking process because I have to identify which were the good ones later when I'm looking at thumbnails with my finger on the delete button. The stock photo viewer should
have an option where you can see the name of a photo overlaid on top of it in the full screen view so you can write down the names of the keepers.
||[marked-for-deletion] Widely known to exist. There are
tons of programs that do exactly this. I'm not sure what
you consider to be the "stock" photo viewer, but Preview,
the built-in photo viewing application on the Mac, can
essentially do this by maximizing the window and leaving
the title bar visible. And Adobe Lightroom on Mac and
Windows can be configured do exactly what you describe.
Also, many programs, including Preview and Lightroom,
will allow you to delete the rejects from within the
program, avoiding the issue altogether.

||You can use Irfan View - on thumbnails view you can select a more than one file to delete, rename or move.
||Is Lightroom "better" than Aperture? I've been using iPhoto, but now have 12 thousand images in numerous folders, and think that it might be time to move over to another programme.
||Seconded regarding Lightroom. Aperture just feels very
clunky, and the photo adjustment tools in Lightroom are
just easier to use and more powerful. The only thing you
might miss coming from iPhoto is the ability to order
prints/books/mugs/dish towels from directly
within the program. There are plugins for Lightroom that
let you do some of that stuff, but none of them is as
elegant as iPhoto or Aperture.
