Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Making collections, part of Learning Lightroom 3.
When you select or filter down to a particular group of photos, you'll often want…to save that group so that you can access it later.…It might be your best photos from multiple shoots, or photos of a particular…person over the years, or a retrospective of your work that you're preparing for a show.…That's when collections become invaluable--…when you want to access related photos even if they're not located in the same folder.…You might think of a collection as the visual equivalent of a music playlist.…Putting a photo in a collection doesn't move it anywhere in your drive, or…even make a copy of it.…
A collection just virtually points to photos wherever they're located, and for…that reason, you can have the same photo in multiple collections.…There are three kinds of collections:…Regular Collections, Smart Collections, and Quick Collections.…Let's see how each works.…First, we'll talk about Regular Collections.…These are static collections.…In other words, you manually add and delete photos from these collections.…
