    In a session, as well as in a catalog, you can select the All Images collection, and search that.

    So my workflow might not be the most optimized, but I use sessions for about 100k photos, using my own folder hierarchy like I said -- the thing is that I'm not able to get ANY results when I click on folder and try to filter results. Is it because they are in lower folders, and C1 can't "see it"?

    It's hard to be so organized, but also have the ability to search throughout without having to drag everything into a "catalog".

    But I can't search for 1 star or blue or anything. Bit frustrating because LR could easily see past the folder structure.

    Thanks!

    If the folders are added as session favourites, they will show up in All Images. But with 100K images, you really should consider catalogs. You can do it with sessions, but not without work-rounds. Sessions were not made for this kind of thing, catalogs were.

    It’s true that Capture One can’t view a folder and its subfolders (unless you add the subfolders as favourites). Youvar3 not the first to wish that it could!

    With catalog, I'd have to literally bring in all the images into a catalog -- all 10TB? So an entire drive just for the catalogue? It's a shame it can't just reference. I wish there was an amazing best practice with this that made sense for such large and copious amounts of photos.

    But it can reference! There is no need to store the images in the catalog itself. On import, you need to choose the Destination option that says Current Location.

    Edited to add - have you watched the webinars and tutorials on catalogs on the YouTube channel or the Learning Hub?
