Chapter 3. Organizing Photos > Ways to assign ratings

Ways to assign ratings

  • Select one or more photos, and from the hierarchical My Rating menu in the Photos menu, choose the desired rating. Note the through keyboard shortcuts—if you're ever going to use keyboard shortcuts, now is the time.

  • Select one or more photos, -click one of the selected photos, and choose the desired rating from the hierarchical My Rating menu.

  • With a photo selected, click the appropriate star button in the Information pane.

  • With the slideshow controls turned on, click the star buttons to assign ratings while the slideshow runs.

    After you choose a rating, iPhoto applies it to the selected photos, displaying it below the photo if you have My Rating () turned on in the View menu (Figure 3.44).

    Figure 3.44. To assign a rating to a photo, select the photo and choose the desired rating from the My Rating menu (or use the keyboard shortcuts, which are a lot faster in this situation). Here you can see my star ratings underneath the photos.


✓ Tips

  • The keyboard shortcuts for rating photos are available at all times, even when you're playing a slideshow!

  • As of iPhoto 5.0.1, clicking the star buttons in the slideshow controls doesn't work. It's a bug.

  • You can change the rating for a photo at any time; it's by no means set in stone.

  • iPhoto considers 5 stars better than 1 star, although there's nothing stopping you from assuming the reverse.
