Smart Albums

A Smart Album automatically gathers and displays photos in your Library that meet criteria you specify.

Let’s say you want to gather all photos that are made by a specific camera into a single album – you create a Smart Album with the criteria “Camera model” and set the exact model. Or, for example, you can create a Smart Album that automatically collects any photos that have the keyword “kids.”

Create a Smart Album

  1. Choose File -> New Smart Album
  2. Choose your criteria in the dialog that appears

You can set one condition or many.

3. Click OK

Your new Smart Album appears with your other albums.

From now on, Phototheca will automatically update your Smart Album, adding new photos that match the criteria and removing photos that no longer match.

Change the criteria for a Smart Album

  1. Select the Smart Album.
  2. Choose File -> Edit Smart Album.
  3. Make your changes, then click OK.
