How to Organize Photos or Files Into New Folders in the Finder
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.
- Select at least two files and/or folders in any Finder view*.
- Right click then choose .
- The new folder appears; rename it appropriately by typing**.
Repeat for as many folders as are needed.
For example, as shown below there are six tulip images selected; make the new folder and name it “Tulips”.
* The Finder does not allow the creation of a folder containing a single file, which can be handy for organizing methodically. You’ll have to create a new folder, then drag the file into it.
** Renaming requires a confusing delay should you start typing too soon; the eye-candy animation has to finish its business before a name can be entered for the new folder. Type too soon and the name is ignored (lost), which can be quite confusing.
