Sorting and Arranging Your Photos

Ah, finally, we get to the fun part—actually sorting and arranging photos. Sorting photos in Photoshop 7 was kind of complicated. You had to rank each photo, and even then you didn’t necessarily get them in the exact order you wanted. Luckily in CS, that’s all changed, but sorting is still based on the simple premise that in every roll of digital film, you have some good shots, some “just okay” shots, and some that stink. You want to stack the good shots up top (at the top of your Browser’s main window), the “okay” shots below those, and the bad shots at the bottom (or delete them altogether).

Method One: Drag-and-drop In Photoshop CS, if you want a particular photo in a particular spot in your main window, you just click on that photo and drag it to that spot. For example, in the capture shown here, if you want the green car (the selected car) to appear in the second position from the top left, just click on its thumbnail and drag it to that spot. That thick black vertical bar (shown here) lets you know where the dragged thumbnail will land. You can treat the main window like your own personal light box, dragging photos into the exact order you want them.
