Chapter 3. Organizing Photos > Selecting Photos

Selecting Photos

Throughout the rest of this chapter, I tell you to select photos before performing some task. I’m sure you have figured out the basic ways of selecting and deselecting images, but there are others that aren’t so obvious.

Ways to select photos:

  • Click a photo to select it.

  • Click one photo to select it, hold down , and then click another photo to select all the pictures between the two.

  • Click one photo to select it, hold down , and then click additional photos to select them individually.

  • Click in an empty area of the display pane, then drag a selection rectangle over the photos you want to select (Figure 3.20). If you drag to the top or bottom of the display pane, iPhoto scrolls the window and keeps selecting additional images.

    Figure 3.20. To select multiple pictures by dragging, click in an empty area of the display pane, and then drag a selection rectangle over the desired photos.


  • From the Edit menu, choose Select All () to select all the images in the current album.

  • In the Photo Library, make sure film rolls are showing, and then click the film roll separator to select all the images in that film roll. This works only in the Photo Library because film roll separators don’t show in other albums.
