In Aperture we've always used projects to help us organize our photos, those containers right over here. You can see it right here in the Project Inspector, and it looks like a little box, and of course, just like in real life, you keep all the photographs in there, the masters, the versions, the web pages, light tables, all that good stuff is contained within the project, and it works very well. Now what happened was that when iPhoto '08 came out, they introduced something called Events, and Events are a different way to organize photos. They're done according to time, like for instance, when you go to a birthday party, and you take pictures all day, and you upload those into iPhoto.
Those become an event, and you can call it birthday party, so people wanted that for Aperture, and Apple listened, and so what they've done for Aperture is they've created a version, a type of event, and they call it All Projects, and the way that it works is like this. You go over to Library, and you click on All Projects, and you'll notice that right here we have nature, wedding, road trip, and soccer, just like we have projects that are named nature, road trip, soccer, and wedding, and you can scrub through them by simply moving the mouse in one direction or the other.
If you don't want to scrub that way, you can use the arrow keys also. Right now I'm simply using the right arrow key and the left arrow key. If I decide that I want a different photo to be the key photo, the photo that's on top, I hit the spacebar, and that becomes the key photo. Same thing here on wedding, I come up to wedding and I can scrub by moving things around, and I decide I really want this to be the key photo. I hit the spacebar and there it is, so it's another way for us to look at our projects, just like in iPhoto, Events are another way for people to look at the images they've uploaded, so as you organize your projects, and as you create new projects, they are automatically included in the All Projects container here, and then you just have a simple way to look inside of them.
You can always do it the old fashioned way where you go back on nature and click on it, but if you're in All Projects, you'll get an overview of everything, and if you want to go inside of the project, you simply have to double click on it, and you're right inside the project as you normally would be if you clicked on the project container itself. It's just a handy tool to look at all of your projects and to quickly scrub through them so that you don't have to open each one individually. [00:02:28.3660]
