For those of us that like to put boxes in boxes, we can create a collection to store our sets. And even though that sounds a little OCD, it's actually comes in handy when you start to get a lot of sets, and you want to put sets of like kind in a collection. So how does that all work? Well I'm going to go over here. Here's our link to our Collections, I'm going to click on that. You'll notice we don't have any yet. So what we're going to do is we're going to go to Organizer to create that.
Now, we could click on this link here, but in case you're not in this view, I want to show you that you can get to it here. And you can get to Organize here. Then we'll go to Sets and Collections, that tab right there. So we have our Sets already, but we don't have any Collections. So we can organize them using collections, they give us a little notice here. Let's Create our first collection. So we'll give it a name, I'm just going to call it Outdoor, and My stuff from outdoor adventures.
Okay, so we'll Create that. Now all we have to do is drag the sets we want in our collection right here. There we go, that's one, let's drag another one. And if I want to change the orders I could do that also I can move these around you can also create a mosaic for your collection. It will give a first tab at it for you this looks pretty good here's our mosaic preview.
So what it does is it pulls images from our sets and kind a gives you an idea of what's in the collection. We have a randomized link here, though. So you could just keep clicking it until you see what you like. We'll go with this, just going to click Save. Alright, I think we have done enough damage here. Let's take a look and see if were were successful. We're back to our home base here, our Photostream. Now collections isn't in the Nav here, you have to go over, where we were before to collections.
And here is our outdoor collection, I'll click on it. And here are our two sets within the outdoor collection. Click on that, and here are photos within one of the sets in the outdoor collections. As I said, boxes within boxes but when you get a lot of boxes, it can be handy to organize them.
