- Press the G key to ensure you are in Gallery images mode. This mode makes it easy to get an overview of a folder or album’s contents so you can choose the image you want.
- Choose the image that you’d like to edit and double click to enter Single image mode.
- The individual image opens and you should see ratings and other useful information below the image in the Canvas.
- If hidden, click the View menu and make sure Current Photo Actions is marked. You can now rate directly below the image.
