Chapter 4. The File Browser > Yes/No sorting

Yes/No sorting

For simple binary sorts, I set the File Browser to show a large preview, and then I use the arrow keys to advance from one image to the next. For the keepers, I press Command-' (apostrophe) to apply the Flag attribute. The rest I simply bypass (though I may rotate images that need it by pressing Command-[ or Command-] to rotate them left or right, respectively).

When I've gone through all the images, I choose Flagged Files from the main window's Show menu, so that I can start processing the keepers without being distracted by the rejects—see Figure 4-16. (Of course, later on I'll probably choose Unflagged Files from the Show menu so that I can take a more nuanced look at the rejects.)

Figure 4-16. Show flagged

Using the keyboard shortcuts to advance from image to image and to apply the flag, I look at each image with a large preview, flag the keepers, and do nothing with the rejects.

Once I've examined each image, I collapse the palettes so that only the thumbnails are showing and choose Flagged Files from the Show menu so that I can start sorting and editing the keepers.
