Chapter 3. Organizing Photos > Other ways to create an album

Other ways to create an album

  • Drag one or more photos, or an entire film roll, into the Source pane, but not onto any existing album (Figure 3.19).

    Figure 3.19. When you drag photos into the Source pane to create a new album containing them, notice how the entire Source pane gets a thick black border.


  • Drag one or more photos, or a folder of photos from the Finder into the Source pane, but not onto any existing album.

  • Select some photos and choose New Album from Selection () from the File menu.

✓ Tips

  • When the Source pane is full, the only “empty” spots are just below the other albums or just below the Trash album.

  • Use albums for categories of pictures that appear once in your photo collection. Use keywords for categories that recur throughout your collection. Albums work well for a specific trip's photos; keywords work better for identifying pictures of your family members, landscapes, or recurring events.
