Album folders are virtual image collections. There are three primary ways to create a new Album:
- Go to Datei -> Neue Sammlung -> Neues Album.
- In the Bibliothek tool, click on the Action menu, the (...) icon, and select Neu -> Neues Album.
- When using Catalogs, in the Bibliothek tool, go to the Benutzersammlungen tab and press the + icon to select Album.
When using Sessions, in the Bibliothek tool, go to the Sitzungsalben tab and press the + icon to select Album.
A straightforward way to add images to an Album folder is to drag and drop (selected) thumbnails from the Browser. Images can also be dragged from a Capture One folder to a file system folder and vice versa in case the operating system supports such an action. You cannot drag images or groups of images into a Smart Album but only into a simple or favorite folder.
