Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Navigating the Photos tab, part of Learning Photos for OS X.
- I'm gonna spend a little time in the Photos tab.…This is the area I hang out most in Photos for OS X,…so it's nice to know a little bit…of the navigational functionality of it,…and I"m going to show you some of those shortcuts right now.…So, we'll start out by magnifying an image.…Just gonna go over to this picture right here,…and I'm gonna double click on it.…And it's in magnify view, and you notice…that I also have split view going.…Now, I can turn on and off split view by doing opt + s,…and it's sticky so it'll remember…if I left it on last time I was there.…
It'll be on when I come back and vice versa.…Now, split view is handy because if you don't want…to navigate one image at a time,…and I mean by using the right arrow key to go forward…and the left arrow key to go backwards.…If you wanna hop down to an image,…then split view allows you to do that right here.…Then I can go right back to where I wanted to go.…So, I tend to leave it open, and the other…keyboard command for sidebar stuff,…which also starts with an S, is to turn on…
