Assign Photo Ratings on the Canon EOS Rebel T3/1100D

The Canon EOS Rebel T3/1100D offers you two options for assigning a rating to a photo: the Quick Control screen or Playback Menu 2. For rating just a photo or two, either one works fine, but for rating a batch of photos, use the menu — it's faster.

Here's how the two options work:

  • Quick Control screen: Display your photo in full-screen view; or, in Index view, select it by moving the highlight box over it. Then press the Quick Control button, which looks like this:

    Next, highlight the Rating icon (a star), and press the right or left cross key (located left and right of the big SET button on the camera back) to highlight the number of stars you want to give the photo:

    To return to the normal playback screen, press the Quick Control button. You must exit the Quick Control screen before rating a second photo; there's no way to advance to another image while the Quick Control screen is active.

  • Playback Menu 2: To access Playback Menu 2, press the Menu button on the camera back. A screen appears that has a row of icons along the top. Using the cross keys, choose the Rating menu, as shown here:

    Next, press Set, and the following screen appears. Above the image, you get a control box for setting the rating of the current picture; just press the up or down cross keys to give the photo anything from one to five stars. The values next to the control box indicate how many other photos on the card have been assigned each rating. In this screen for example, the numbers indicate four four-star photos and three five-star images:

    After rating your photos, press Menu to return to the Playback menu.
