Sort Collection. We've made it easy to begin. A sort collection comes installed in the program. Initially you can copy, scan or import photos and files into the sort collection. Later you can create some new collections and then drag the files in the sort collection to any collection you have created. You can also drag files into other collections as you organization system starts to develop.
Naming Collections. Use any type of collection name you desire. This provides flexibility in the kinds of collections you create and how you name each collection. Use the names you have previously used to create new collection names. A right click on the collection name is all that is required to change or edit a collection name.
