Albums has been a part of iPhoto from the very beginning, although they've changed a little bit over time and actually with iPhoto '11, we have one of the bigger changes around albums. What are they? They are collections of images that you create, virtual collections, which means the photos aren't moving from where they were in the Events or Faces or Places. You may remember that in an earlier movie I created this album by flagging photos and then pulling them altogether and then once I have them all in one place under Flagged, I saved them as an album.
And then that way, I can come back to this collection of images whenever I want. So to create an album is actually very simple. All you have to do is find the images that you want. For example, we will take this event Autumn Color and let's say that I want to have a couple of shots from here in an album called Autumn Color. I just select the images that I want to add to the album. You may recall that there used to be a little plus button down here.
What's happened is we have a plus button over here, which is actually a pop-up menu. In the top item on the pop-up menu is Album, so I am going to click that and I get some options here. I can add these images to an existing album or I can just create a new album, which is most of time probably which you are going to want to do. Create a new album here, give it a name. Hit Tab to Enter and there we go.
We now have a new album. Now there's some fun stuff you can do with these albums and I'm going to show you that in the next movie.
