The Aperture and iPhoto Libraries, they're actually these wonderful containers…that hold your data, your thumbnails, your original images. Very handy! It's…like having a very cool grocery bag to carry all these items so you don't have…to juggle them in your arms.…And these containers can be moved and they can be renamed.…Now, to move them, it's very simple.…You basically just click and drag them to wherever you want.…And you can create folders to organize these at the Finder level wherein our…Exercise File folder right now, which is inside the Pictures folder and I can…open that up and there they are.…
Now, if I want to rename, there are two ways that you can do that.…One is you can just click on the name itself and type.…That's one way to do it.…Now, I actually use Get Info most of the time for renaming, because it allows me…to look at some of the other things that are going on.…So, I'm just going to click on the file and I'm going to do Command+I right here…and I could name it, for example, at Dusk, and hit the Tab key to enter it.…
