    One way to see the path is to press the command key and click on the title of the Preview window. You will get a display of folders corresponding to the path to the file. If you click on the entry just below the title it will open the enclosing folder and show you the file in the Finder.

    Once you have the folder selected in its folder (from the previous step) inside the Finder (not Preview), you can do the Get info thing.
