In iPhoto '11 Essential Training, Derrick Story offers an in-depth tour of the popular photo management software from Apple, demonstrating its various features for organizing, editing, and sharing images. The course covers techniques to categorize and combine images into custom collections using iPhoto's geotagging, face detection, and Smart Album features, and offers insight on how to perform key image corrections and enhancements. Also covered are tutorials on building customized slideshows and outputting collections to calendars, books, and greeting cards. Exercise files accompany the course.
I am going to talk a little about the folders, which helps you organize over here in your Albums pane, and I think folders are designed for people like me that get very excited about Smart Albums and albums and creating all this stuff. Because you can imagine that over time you will end up with a lot of these things and this Album spane could go all the way down to infinity, and so you may want to create a structure that puts albums of the like kind together and that's what folders are great for.
So to create a folder you just go up here to File > New and you'll see Folder right there and you basically get that. You get a little folder icon and let's say I wanted to keep all of my Smart Albums in a folder. So I just name it. Hit Tab. Now all I have to do is take anything that I want to put in that folder, just drag it there, and now I have a little organization added to my Library pane and you can create as many folders you want. You can move items around.
One thing that you want to keep in mind is that if you decide you want to delete a folder and I am just going to right- click on it right now, Delete Folder. You'll get this little warning that says, Are you sure you want to delete the folder and all of the items that it contains? And I go- well, well, no, I don't want to do that. So you're going to cancel that. Go back to your folder. Drag this stuff out so it's not in the folder anymore. Now go back to your folder, right- click on it, delete it, and it goes away.
So folders, a very handy tool just to help you keep your Library pane nice and tidy.
