Rotating Multiple Images
by Ben Long
However, if you select multiple images and click on one of them with the Rotate tool, only that image will rotate (regardless of the state of the Toggle Primary Select button). This might seem unintuitive, but don't worry, there's still a way to rotate entire groups of images. Just select the images as normal, and then use the ] key to rotate clockwise, and the [ to rotate counter-clockwise. Alternately, you can use the Rotate commands found under the Images menu.
Also, don't forget that you can rotate single or multiple images upon import, by using the Rotate commands found in the Aperture Import dialog.
I've been curious about that. Just yesterday I was needing to rotate images en masse.
If you have a set of multiple images you need to rotate, click on the oppropreiate rotate tool (rotate left or rotate right), then click on the first image to rotate it, then while holding down the shift key, click on the last image. All of the images between the first and last will all rotate in the same direction. This is the same way you can select multiple image by clicking on the first one then shift clivcking on the last one, except you use the rotate tool to click.
|Steven R., try simply pushing "S" before - that's the shortcut for the command "Primary Only" under the menu "Edit". Having set "Primary Only" prevents Aperture from editing multiple items at once.|
