Collections with photos belonging to the current view are accessible right at the top of the screen. With a single click, only the photos from that collection will be shown, similar to browsing a sub folder. Read more.
Select photos to be added to or removed from a collection in an instant. Reveal images that are part of a collection without a single click. Read more.
Collections let you organize as efficiently as with star ratings or color labes, but offer even greater flexibility than tags and albums.
The collection bar only shows you the collections that have images in common with the current event or view, keeping your focus on what is actually relevant.
When moving the mouse cursor over a collection, the items that are part of the collection will immediately be highlighted, giving a quick overview of its contents
Each collection can have a fixed alphabetic shortcut assigned, so that the same key can be used to add or remove photos, regardless of where you are
The quick select button allows to enter a mode in which may items can be added to or removed from the collection, each with just a single click
You have access to the full organization features of Aspect in the details view. Zoom, inspect and compare while your collections always stay under your fingertips.
Collections can be part of another collection to form arbitrary hierarchies.
Photos in a sub collection are automatically part of their ancestor collections — in a hierarchy of animal species, a photo in the “mouse” collection would also be part of the ancestor collections “rodents” and “mammals”.
Any item in the “ORGANIZATION” section has a little pin icon that can be used to add it to the “PINNED” section at the top of the organization panel.
If you have many collections, you can use this to keep frequently used collections readily accessible, without interfering with your organization structure.
When opening a collection from the organization panel, the photos it contains will be grouped by their event by default, providing a new perspective to look at your library.
Collections can be used alone, or can be nested to form arbitrary hierarchies. A photo can be in any number of collections at the same time, providing a maximum amount of flexibility for organization tasks.
Similar to a swiss army knife, collections combine the best properties of albums, tags and color labels, as found in other photo organization software, but in a clear and uniform concept.
For categories that are unambiguously assigned to each photo, as well as for advanced photo culling tasks, it is often desirable to have a way to ensure that a photo cannot be in multiple collections of a hierarchy.
Taxonomy collections do exactly that — within a taxonomy collection hierarchy, each photo can only be in a single place, mimicking a virtual folder hierarchy where photos can be moved between folders.
Exporting photos often is a repeating task — repeated for every project and often repeated after changes to the source set of images.
Export collections remove the burden of having to manually manage exports and instead automatically keep a folder with exported photos in sync with the contents of the export collection.
