Recorded for ... ummm ... posterity ?
open -a /Applications/Preview.app/ $( identify $( file $( find . -type f -mtime -7h ) |
 grep image | awk -F: '{print $1}' ) | sort -k3,3n | cut -d'[' -f 1 | tail -45  )

... translation: "Open, using the Preview application, the largest (by X dimension) 45 images among those found anywhere under the current directory, among those modified in the last 7 hours".

(I'm running it from the Firefox Cache directory, ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/profile_name/Cache)

There's probably a better way to do it ... almost certainly suitable one-liners in Perl/Ruby/Python could be found. But this worked for me :)

Where does the identify come from? I don't seem to have one of those on Mountain Lion.

Ah, that's part of ImageMagick (which I installed with HomeBrew - "brew install imagemagick").
I use identify and mogrify quite a bit, and hardly any of the other tools ...

Gotcha, thanks! Not that I'm likely to actually need the 'identify' command, but you know, general curiosity and all that!
