Folders in Catalogs

    As a newbie (coming over from Aperture), I'm having trouble grasping the organization of photo files. It might help to have some sort of diagram so show how "Catalogs" and "Sessions" and "Albums," etc., relate to each other. I'll look for a video tutorial in hopes of getting more help.

    It would be helpful to see an example. I want to be able to access groups of photos and work on them in Cap1. What's the first step? etc.

    Or would it be simpler to keep my photos in my Mac's "Photos?"

    Hi Howard,

    Thank you for the comment.

    Catalogs and Sessions allow organizing your workflow depending on your projects and preferences. Read more about the Catalogs here and about Session here.

    Meanwhile, Albums are virtual folders that help in structuring your workflow and organizing images. Read more about the virtual organization of images here.

    Thank you for the suggestion regarding the diagrams and examples showing the relation of Catalogs and Albums, for instance. That indeed might be helpful for users to have the graphical representation of the file organization.

    Not a newbie in this program and I still find it's "Library" cumbersome... Why can't it just read my disk structure per se?

    Same as Bridge for example, or On1 Photo Raw... I love editing in C1, but having to make a new Catalog each and every time I want to work on a new project or session is always a mess.

    I do have external disc drives, therefore I first import all my new photos to the drive, A- And even A and B if they are important sessions. It would be so much easier, just to read the folder heriarchy...  Oh well, whishes only :)

    Hi Daniela,

    Thank you for the comment.

    Please, note that the Library tool acts like Finder/Exporer of the corresponding OS when you are using Sessions.
