Organize Keyword and Smart Collections

You can organize Keyword Collections and Smart Collections in events using folders, and you can copy collections between folders and between events.

Additionally, every library you create comes with a Smart Collections folder containing a default set of Smart Collections:

  • All Video

  • Audio Only

  • Favorites

  • Projects

  • Stills

You can rename any collection and adjust its search criteria. You can also add or delete collections from the library Smart Collections folder, or delete the entire folder.

Organize collections with folders

  1. In the Libraries list, select the event containing the collections you want to organize, and choose File > New Folder.

  2. Type a name for the new folder that appears within the event and press Return.
