Album folders are virtual image collections. There are three primary ways to create a new Album:
- Go to File -> New Collection -> New Album.
- In the Library tool, click on the Action menu, the (...) icon, and select New -> New Album.
- When using Catalogs, in the Library tool, go to the User Collections tab and press the + icon to select Album.
When using Sessions, in the Library tool, go to the Session Albums 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.
