When you close Preview, try press/hold the Options/Alt key and Quit Preview. This should give you the ability to Quit and Close all windows.

While in Preview, navigate with your mouse pointer to the Preview menu. You will see the "Quit Preview" menu item listed at the bottom of the menu. Now press the Alt/Options button, and the "Quit Preview" menu item will change to "Quit and Close All Windows." When you click on it, all those "ghost" windows - which show up in Expose and are also listed in the dock's Preview icon when right-clicked on - will be gone.

I'm having exactly the same problem as originally described in this post. I've tried what is suggested but upon opening preview and going into expose, 10 or so photos are displayed in the lower half of the screen. Can anyone please advise how to close them permanently? If I click on a photo, it opens in a large window and if I click close then go into expose, it's still shown in the lower half of the expose screen. Please help.

go to File then to Open Recent
in the drop down menu Select Clear Menu
Exposé will continue to show the recently opened items until Preview is restarted

There should be a setting for the in Preferences for Preview. It's really confusing when you have activly told Preview to close the window.
