OS X Finder: Quickly Organize Photos Into New Folders

This shortcut is especially useful for organizing groups of related photographs, especially in icon view (enlarge the images for ease of distinguishing them). This approach is how I do my initial sort after downloading images in the field.

The Apple OS X Finder offers a shortcut to select two or more files and put them into a new folder. This is a very handy way to organize things.

  1. Select at least two files and/or folders in any Finder view*.
  2. Right click then choose New Folder with Selection.
  3. The new folder appears; rename it appropriately by typing**.

Diglloyd Making Sharp Images articulates years of best practices and how-to, painstakingly learned over a decade of camera and lens evaluation.

Save yourself those years of trial and error by jump-starting your photographic technical execution when making the image. The best lens or camera is handicapped if the photographer fails to master perfect shot discipline. High-resolution digital cameras are unforgiving of errors, at least if one wants the best possible results.

  • Eases into photographic challenges with an introductory section.
  • Covers aspects of digital sensor technology that relate to getting the best image quality.
  • Technique section discusses every aspect of making a sharp image handheld or on a tripod.
  • Depth of field and how to bypass depth of field limitations via focus stacking.
  • Optical aberrations: what they are, what they look like, and what to do about them.
  • MTF, field curvature, focus shift: insight into the limitations of lab tests and why imaging performance is far more complex than it appears.
  • Optical aberrations: what they are, what they look like, and what to do about them.
  • How to test a lens for a “bad sample”.
