Rearrange and sort photos in the Browser
As you work with photos in the Browser, you can move and rearrange them into any order or grouping you like. For example, you might want to keep all related photos of a wedding project, such as the cake cutting, in close proximity to allow you to easily sort through the best ones and then adjust them.
You can drag photos to new locations in the Browser. When you drag photos to new locations, you create a custom arrangement of your photos, and the Sorting pop-up menu changes to show the Manual option. Aperture records the order of your photos, and whenever you choose Manual from the Sorting pop-up menu, your photos reappear in that order.
You can also change the order of photos in the Browser based on photo properties such as filename, file size, date, color label, rating, and more. For example, when displaying photos by filename, Aperture places the photos in alphabetical order. You might also order the photos by date or time. You choose the sort property from the Sorting pop-up menu in grid view, list view, and filmstrip view.
