iPhoto is the backbone of digital photo management for amateur photographers using Macs. In iPhoto '08 Essential Training, instructor Derrick Story teaches each aspect of iPhoto '08, including how to burn CDs and DVDs; set up an advanced editing environment; and retouch, rotate, crop, duplicate, and manipulate photographs. Derrick also shares many tips and tricks and demonstrates how to best organize large photo libraries with metadata, flags, keywords, ratings, and photo info. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
I have noticed now as I'm working with my Events, I have a little house keeping to do. First of all on this Caribbean Event here I have actually misnamed the Event. The name came about because I was on a Caribbean cruise, but the photos within this Event are actually from two different locations, some from Guatemala and some from Costa Maya. So I really feel like I should break this Event into two separate Events and then have everything labeled correctly. I'm going to start by Clicking on the Event itself to highlight it, going over here to the Events, Auto Split, and it will split the Event into two different days as I have set in my Preferences. Here are my Guatemala shots and here are my Costa Maya shots. Now the next thing I should do is actually clean up the label for the Event. So I just going to Click it once and hit Return, there is Guatemala. Let's go down and just take care of Costa Maya also. Excellent. And now the labels for my Events properly reflect the shots that are inside of them, but still have a little bit more work to do. I'm going to Double-Click the Event open it up. And I have a kind of little bit of messiness going on here with the file naming. I would like to have the file naming be a little cleaner. Now there are a couple of different ways I can do that. One way is I can clean up each file individually by just Clicking on the file so I Click the blue eye to reveal the Information pane and there is a title field, and if I wanted to I can Click each photo individually, clean up the title and then go to the next photo. Now I can also change more than one photo at once. I can do batch change which is really handy when you have a whole bunch of photos more than seven in the Event where you want to change their titles. Click on the first photo. Go down to the last photo, hold the Shift key. Go up to Photos, go to Batch Change, Set Title, we'll choose Event Name and Click OK. Now all of the photos in that Event will be changed to reflect the properly labeled Event name followed by a sequential number. So you have two ways to clean up the photos within the Event. You can change each one individually or you can apply the Batch Change command either way, house keeping is fairly easy in iPhoto and you can make things look the way that you want.
