Steven Weller on the Bagelturf blog has an interesting take on rating pictures in Aperture.
I devised my rating system a while back. And thought that it was OK.
Here it is again in a nutshell:
What really caught my eye about his rating was a tool I built at work to help my team prioritize marketing projects we have.
Here’s what I wrote in the accompanying documentation to assist my team rate projects:
For scoring projects, each criterion is scored on a scale of 1 to 5 where “5” is high. However, one should look at this scoring scale as a simple 1-2-3, or low-medium-high scale with the benefit of adding exception handling with the 1s and 5s.
What is interesting is that I am contradicting myself: 3 stars (or so) at work but 5 at home!
I will update my rating system going forward based on Steve’s system, but with a “Max twist”.
Here is my new rating system:
2: A pic to keep
3: A pic to show
4: A pic to be proud of
1: A (bad) pic that somehow you have to must to keep
5: A pic to be (super) proud of
