When it comes to rating, ranking, filtering, and finding your photographs, another feature which may come in handy allows you to sort your pictures in some unique ways. In this particular folder of images I have images which are rated or ranked differently. And what I want to do is be able to sort these images so that I can start to sort them, so that the better photographs are near the top. So here, let's go ahead and tap the J key. When you tap the J key, what it will allow you to do is to change your view here. We now have the expanded view, in this case I have these options which show me the star rating.
We have one photograph with the 4 star, another one with the 2, others with 3 star ratings. I want the higher star rated photographs to be near the top, to change this click on this menu item here in the toolbar. Now if your toolbar isn't visible, tap the T key, that allows you to show and hide that. Then click on this icon. And I want to choose the option for Sorting. In turning this on, you can Sort by a number of different criteria. You can Sort based Capture Time, by Edit Count, or you can also use some of the criteria which we've added like Rating. Here we'll go ahead and click Rating.
In doing that you can now see that the 4 star image is in position number 1, then we have the 3 star rated photographs, then 2 and then so on and so forth down the line. We can also flip flop this, if we want the 1 star images to be near the top, well you can just click on this icon here and that will then reverse that sorting function. You can see that the photographs with a higher star rating are now located near the bottom. And then the photographs with the lower star rating are near the top. And as you click on this menu, you can see you have a number of different criteria options.
You can always just choose File Name if you want to sort them that way as well. You can also access the Sorting feature by navigating to your View pull-down menu. If you go down to the Sort option here, you can see that you'll have the same criteria that we located there in the toolbar. And here I just wanted to highlight that you have two different ways that you can access the same exact tool. You can either navigate to View, Sort, and then choose the option. Or perhaps an even better way is to work with this feature here in the toolbar, which you can access by clicking on this menu item and then turning it on and off by clicking on the options here in this pull-down menu. And you want to turn that on and then select how you want to sort your images. In this case, we'll sort based on Rating, and then we'll go ahead and flip flop that so that the highest star rated photograph is in position number 1.
