Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Making Smart Collections and Quick Collections, part of Learning Lightroom 3.
Now let's make another kind of collection, a Smart Collection.…A Smart Collection is populated with photos automatically, based on rules that you set up.…All photos in the current Lightroom catalog that meet those rules will…automatically be included in the Smart Collection.…And if you add another photo that meets the same rules, it will automatically be…added to that Smart Collection too.…Lightroom comes with a few preset Smart Collections.…To see those, I'll go down to the Collections panel and click the arrow to the…left of Smart Collections.…And here I can see that one of the preset Smart Collections is Five Stars.…
If I click on that Smart Collection, you can see that it contains all the photos…in my catalog which I've rated with five stars.…I'm going to go up to the Catalog panel and click on All Photographs, and I'm…going to add five stars to another photo, maybe this photo right here.…I'll click on the fifth dot here to add five stars,…and then I'm going to collapse the Catalog panel so there is more room to see…
