Sessions 'collections'

    The (probably) simplest method is to create a new session "project x", create a static album in the library tool, locate the images using the system folders part of the library tool and drag&drop them from the browser/filmstrip to the new album. This will only create references from that album to the images, they stay in place and edits can be done in either this session or any other (e.g. in the "original") session. All edits done to the images, regardless in which session you edit them, are stored in sidecar files (beneath CaptureOne) so you will see the effect in every session. Just don't have two session open at the same time to avoid potential side effects.

    Things are different if you import the images into a catalog (which is another possibility). The edits done in the original session will port over but then will get disconnected. Further edits done in the catalog or in a session will diverge.

    Just want to make you aware of a potential pitfall when working with C1. C1 is working with "references" (i.e. locations, paths) to know where each image is located (with maybe one exception, that is when having a catalog with imported images into that catalog).

    These references can easily be broken (i.e. refer to an image which is no longer there) or loose its adjustments if using sessions when you move images outside of C1 (in Explorer or Finder). Never do that. Instead, move images with the C1 browser and library tool (drag&drop) so that the references are updated.

    However, if you are having multiple sessions (or catalogs, or a mix) then you'd update only one session (or catalog) if your are moving images around (the one in which your are doing that), the other sessions or catalogs won't update their references and point to nothing (resulting in an "offline image").

    So, never do that either. Don't move images around after having references in more than one session or catalog, or do it, but take care about these other references.

    Thanks! I'll watch out for that.
