Navigating the Browser
Depending on your workspace configuration, display resolution, and the number of images you’re evaluating, their thumbnails may not all fit in the Browser. There are a couple of ways to scroll through the images. Let’s reorient our view and take a look at them.
- Press Shift-W to rotate the Browser from the bottom to the left side of the main window.
- Drag the Thumbnail Resize slider in the Browser if necessary so that you can see two columns of thumbnails.
This allows us to see larger thumbnails and a large image in the Viewer for these landscape photos.
- Drag the scroller to the right of the Browser all the way down.
- Drag the Shuttle control, located above the Browser scroll bar, up and down. Aperture shuttles continuously through the images in the Browser.
- Use the left and right arrow keys to navigate to images outside the Browser area. The newly selected images appear.
- Scroll to the bottom of the Browser and select the Jackson Hole 19 of 23 image.
This is a nice shot, so let’s use a new way to define it as a select for the retailer.
- Control-click the image in the Viewer and choose five stars from the Rating shortcut menu (Command-Option-5).
- Control-click the Jackson Hole 17 of 23 thumbnail in the Browser and choose five stars from the shortcut menu.
- Using any of the techniques you’ve learned in this lesson so far, give the following images a five-star rating for the client:
Jackson Hole 2 of 23, Jackson Hole 7 of 23, Jackson Hole 8 of 23, and Jackson Hole 9 of 23. This gives you a total of nine five-star Jackson Hole images.
These images not only have individual merit but together tell a complete visual story about the location. It’s OK that some of the images need cropping or exposure adjustments or have slanted horizon lines; we’ll correct those problems in the next lesson.
Zooming in at full resolution in the Viewer can give you a much better sense of the content of your images, allowing you to more critically evaluate them. It’s also important to be able to quickly navigate through images in the Browser so that you can work with large groups of images efficiently. Now that we’ve made selects for the South America and Jackson Hole images, let’s move on to rating our South Beach images.
