Collections And Filtered Sources

In addition to the ability to manipulate actual files and folders on disk from within Lightroom, there are even more powerful options for finding, organizing and sorting your photographs using virtual sources created in the database.

Collections are like "virtual folders"; they exist only in the Lightroom database. A single photograph can be a member of any number of Collections without requiring additional copies of the file on disk. Collections are an example of Lightroom's ability to reference a single image in multiple ways from within the database. Filters define image sources using criteria you specify and are used to refine other, higher-level sources. Collections and Filters are discussed in detail later in this chapter.
