A nice way to get a full-screen slideshow of photos in Finder:
1) Select a bunch of JPG files
2) Press opt-spacebar
Can then pause or use arrows to move around.
Is there a way to apply a Star Rating to photos without going into an application. I am particularly interested in this for iPad, where I’d like to rate my photos (downloaded from my camera) while on vacation, prior to developing these at home on my Mac, using DxO
Ira: Not sure what you mean by "without going into an application." You are always using some app. Which app are you trying to avoid? On your iPhone in the Photos app you can add keyword tags, so you can have keyword tags for star ratings and apply them on your iPhone. Then those would sync with your Mac automatically via iCloud Photos.
Thanks. Specifically I wanted to do this in Finder, without the need to use a photo processing app just for this need. My photos are Fuji raw compressed and I just store them in a folder, not in the photos
Ira: But you specified the iPad. The Finder is Mac. So I'm not sure of your situation here. You can tag files in the Finder on a Mac, sure, so you can set up tags like "5 Star Photo" and such. You can do it in the Files app on the iPad too. But stars and tagging is a form of organization. So why not use the app (Photos) designed for organization? That's what it is for. Right tool for the job.
Column View works, but how can I expand the width of the column that has the photo (on the iPad). Thanks for your great ideas
Ira: On the iPad? It works differently there. I don't think there is a column width adjustment.
