Organizing Photos

This chapter is from the book

Creating and Modifying New Film Rolls

Whenever you import photos into iPhoto, it creates a film roll to hold them, and in early versions of iPhoto, that was that. Now, however, you can create new film rolls and move photos between film rolls.

To create a new film roll:

  1. In the Library, select one or more photos (Figure 3.12).
    Figure 3.12

    Figure 3.12 Select some photos, as I've done with the first two of Tristan; then choose Create Film Roll from the File menu.

  2. From the File menu, choose Create Film Roll.

    iPhoto creates a new film roll using the selected photos (Figure 3.13).

    Figure 3.13 iPhoto creates a new film roll using the selected photos and organizes it according to the dates of the photos.

To move photos between film rolls:

  • Select one or more photos and drag them on top of another film roll's name.

    iPhoto moves the photos to the destination film roll (Figure 3.14).
