    Hi

    If I want to rename a group of files/folders I use 'Bulk Rename Utility'. Highly recommended.

    I understand where are coming from. One question though: do you use templates for session or catalog creation?

    Thanks for the tip, it's good for finder renaming but the main issue is renaming or deleting / adding favourites within Capture One

    Absolutely, I have set ups for 3 folder shoots, 10 folder, etc etc, however sometimes I need custom names according to set ups and complicated folder hierarchies, that's why I feel selecting multiple folders in C1 would be extremely beneficial!

    Hello,

    I am not sure if this is a similar situation...

    If I have 10 Shoot folders made to favorites in a session, I'd like to be able to select Shoot 2 & Shoot 7. C1 would then display the images in those 2 folders, then I could filter etc...

    I assume the only other way to do this is to create an album and then add the images from both folders...?

    I am new to dealing with the folder/filter/selecting in C1 and even though it's a nice program it seems like there's odd roadblocks to what is normal in finder/other programs selecting... Please correct me if I am wrong!!

    I have this same problem. I recently had to "Add to Favourites" on every subfolder in a session to get the colour tags filtering to work in the "All Images" album. It was a real pain to have to right click each folder; I just could not figure out why it would not let me select multiple folders.
    Just like John394, I too like to select a few folders and view the tagged images in only those, and creating a new album just for that is a hassle.
    For now, I have been changing my workflow to be more album centric, and avoiding the favourites altogether. Of course, that is only for new sessions, fixing up my old ones will be a daunting task 😂

    This is where smart folders come in. Configure them to display e.g only GREEN tag images, so it will constantly look in every folder which is in favourites, so you can compare shots from multiple folders. Except from the current bug which doesn't update images and requires restart to show them (very annoying).

    I guess that is another way... You still have to add and remove the color code on all the images that you want in or out of the Smart Album... Being able to just select the specific folders is just second nature in almost every OS and program out there. I don't know why C1 has gone against it since the beginning...?

    Yes, that is exactly what I had to do. The smart album worked great, but I first had to individually favourite every folder. It would have been a lot faster to multi-select all the folders, then right click and add to favourites. Lesson learned; now, on import an album is created and I don't have to worry about favouriting the folder.

    [edit] Mac has an option to add multiple folders to favourites easily:

    Open a finder window with your shot folders
    Select all in finder
    Drag drop into the favourites area in Capture One from finder.

    Removing is harder I grant you, but I hope this helps a bit.

    Jim,

    I am probably missing something but this does not seem to work with Windows 7. Can you confirm that you would expect it to work before I head off to try some different ways to test it?

    Hi Jim,

    I had a feeling it might be ..... ☚ī¸

    Never mind. As I most often import into a session the work is usually done for me!
