Changing the Number of Images in the Viewer

You can specify whether the Viewer displays one image, three images, or multiple images at a time. If your system uses multiple displays, you can configure your main and secondary displays to show single images, three images, or multiple images simultaneously. The display settings you choose also control the display of images in Full Screen view.

By default, the Main Viewer is set to Show Multiple. When Show Multiple is chosen, the Viewer displays anywhere from one image up to twelve at a time, depending on the number of images selected in the Browser.

To display multiple images
  • Choose View > Main Viewer > Show Multiple (or press Option-U).

When the Viewer is set to Show One, the Viewer displays one image at a time regardless of the number of images selected in the Browser. This setting allows you to make a multiple image selection in the Browser and then view each image by itself within the selection.

To display a single image
  • Choose View > Main Viewer > Show One (or press Option-R).

When the Viewer is set to show three images at a time, Aperture displays the selected image in the center of the three images that appear in the Viewer.

To display three images
  • Choose View > Main Viewer > Three Up (or press Option-H).
