In addition to looking for images, you can also organize your images in the File Browser itself. This method makes it easier to organize files because you can sort the images based on their thumbnails.
1. In order to create a new folder, either select File -> New Folder, right-click in the Folders palette (Windows OS), or Ctrl-click and select New Folder (Mac OS).
2. In the File Browser window, click the untitled folder name and wait for the text editing options to show. Then edit the folder’s name. When you’re done entering the folder name, click anywhere in the File Browser window to exit the editing mode.
3. To move a file from one location to a new folder, simply select the image thumbnail and drag it to a different folder.
4. To copy a file to a new location, press Alt (Windows OS) or Option (Mac OS) and drag the file to a different folder.
5. To delete a file, click the file you want to delete. Then do one of the following: Click the Trash button at the top of the File Browser, drag the files to the Trash button, press the Delete key, or choose File -> Delete.
6. The File Browser enables you to rename files on your system. To rename one file, click the file name of the image in the File Browser to enter the text editing mode, then type the new file name.
7. To rename all the files in a folder, make sure that no files are selected. To rename a subset of files in a folder, select the files you want to rename. Then choose Automate -> Batch Rename, and set the following options: Destination Folder, which is where you want the new files to go after they have been named; File Naming, and then choose the naming scheme you want for your images based on preset options; and Compatibility, which enables you to specify which operating systems you want to the files to be handled.
8. To search for an image in the File Browser, click the Search button on the left of the File Browser toolbar or select File -> Search to open the Search dialog box.
9. Enter your search criteria and press Search. The Search results are displayed in the File Browser.
10. To apply an action to all the files in a folder, make sure that no files are selected. To apply an action to a subset of files in a folder, select the files you want to manipulate. Then choose Automate -> Batch to open the Batch dialog box. Finally, choose the action you want to apply to the Filter, specify any other settings, and press OK.
