We took a brief tour of iPhoto. Here we will repeat the steps we took.
- locate photos in a folder on your Desktop
- Import the photos into iPhoto.
- Move them into an Album.
- Run a Slide Show.
Open a Finder Window and locate the pictures that you want to import.
Open iPhoto. For reference click on “Last Import”. Here you see the last set of photos that you imported into iPhoto.
Now to import a new set, click File -> Import to Library…
Select the Folder where your photos are located and click Import.
When you return to the “Last Import” button in iPhoto you will these photos.
This movie will show you how to move photos out of your “Last Import” folder and into an Album.
In class you learned how to create a folder, name the folder, delete a folder and delete a file. You can set up your Finder window to make these operations a little easier.
Open a Finder window. Notice the buttons at the top of the window.
Click on View-> Customize Toolbar
As you can see, there are buttons listed to “Delete” items, create a “New Folder” and other things.
Simply drag the buttons you would like to use to the top of the window. Arrange them in any way you want to see them.
This might make it easier to perform these operations. At least it will give you one more option.
One of you asked how I get the folder path to show in my Finder window. In this installment, I’ll show you how.
Here is a full view of the Finder with the folder path at the bottom. I’ve clicked on the picture (to the right) but you can see the folders within the folders containing it:
Here’s a closer look:
If you would like to have this view,
- Open a Finder window.
- Go to View -> Show Path Bar.
The path will appear just as you see it above.
Once the path is showing the same menu will change to “Hide Path Bar”.
