Okay, it's time to use the exercise files. So go to your Exercise Files folder and double-click on the iPhoto library that's in there and then you can follow it along right now. iPhoto gives you a number of ways to organize your images. Events is one of them. It's at the top of the Library here. Events are based on time and the thinking being that when we take photos we usually do them in these little events in our life. We go to Kauai.
We take pictures of a friend or a relative. We go to another place. So an event is a collection of those images that based on something that happened. Now you have some control over how long this period of time is and that's controlled in the Preferences. I'm going to take you into that in the next movie. Right now I just really want to have you get a feel for how this system works. Now once you go inside an event, the pictures are organized by time also.
So the first shot that you took is at the beginning and then the last shot in the event is at the end. These will pretty much stay where they are. You're not going to be moving them around very much. However, the events themselves you can move in this interface. So I can take an event and if I wanted it to be the first event, so I can move it over here and it will change locations. Now be careful when you do this, because if you don't go all the way over, iPhoto is going to ask you if you want to merge these events, which you probably don't want to do.
So make sure you get a clean drop, you go all the way over and don't merge them. So events are a time-based way of looking at your iPhoto library, and I'm going to show you now some tips for managing that.
