Options for Merging Albums

Normally a ProSelect album file is associated with one job or shoot. However, in some cases, you may want to combine the images from multiple shoots into one album file so that they can all be reviewed together or used to create artwork spanning multiple shoots or life-cycles.

Here are some ways to achieve this:

USE SETS TO SEPERATE YOUR IMAGES

You can use the Image Sets in ProSelect to separate out each job into a different Set "folder". ProSelect support up to 15 Sets in each album file. You can rename sets, easily copy images between sets, and divide the images in each set into Yes/Maybe/No tabs. ProSelect support up to 15 sets with the number shown selectable in your Preferences -> General Settings -> General -> General Default: No. of Image Sets.

For more about using Sets see the section "Using Image Sets" in the ProSelect Reference Manual or the movie of the same name on the Training Movies page.

ADDING IMAGES INTO A DIFFERENT SET INTO AN EXISTING ALBUM

To add images into a different Set other than the default first one, select a Set below the Image List and use any of the import methods (Add Folder of Images, drag and drop etc) to load that set with your images.

ADDING IMAGES FROM ANOTHER ALBUM INTO AN EXISTING ALBUM

While you can't directly do this, you can easily separate out specific original images in an album into a separate folder on your disk using the Original Images -> Move/Copy commands (under the Album menu).

You can select all images

  • In the current Tab (Select the Yes, Maybe or No tab first)
  • All Ordered Images or
  • All Images Used in the currently selected Book (under Working with Books).

Once you have Moved or Copied those images, you can add into another album using the method described above.

See the section "Processing an Order Manually" in the ProSelect Reference Manual for more about this feature.

HINT: If the album that you are getting the images from already has them in multiple sets, you can choose "Show All Images Sets Together" (under the View Menu in ProSelect) to temporarily "combine" all the sets and, as a result,  the above Move or Copy "Tab" commands will move/copy all the images in all of the sets together.
