Rating Your Images In Full Screen Mode
This is one of the most effective ways to sort your photos after you’ve imported them from your digital camera, because you can only really tell which photos are in sharp focus when they’re viewed at nearly full screen. So in Bridge, Shift-click on all the contiguous photos you want to review, press Command-L to launch the slide show, press W to see the images full screen, and then press Spacebar to start the slide show. As a photo appears full screen, just press numbers (1–5) to rate that photo instantly. For example, a photo appears onscreen and it’s not that great, type 3 and it gets a three-star rating right on the spot. Try this once, and you’ll start doing this all the time. Unless of course, you hate it—then you’ll probably never do it again.
