…Most photographers utilize a Folder Structure as…their primary method of keeping images organized.…And that makes perfect sense since we need to…put our images into a folder of some sort.…We certainly don't want every single photo we ever…capture to be contained in the exact same folder location.…And so folders represent a sensible solution…for applying some basic organization to our images.…But what about situations where we want to group…images in ways that go beyond that folder structure.…
For example, let's say I'm working on a project, and that…project is going to incorporate images from a variety of different folders.…I don't want to create a new folder and copy images to that location, I…just want to reference the images as…being part of the particular collection of photos.…And in fact, the collection is exactly the solution.…In Lightroom, collections are essentially virtual folders.…Collections behave much like a folder, in that we…can choose a collection and see a specific group…of images just as we can choose a folder…
