I'm sort of confused between the 3.


1 Answer 1


Project: Contains distinct photos/videos. A given photo/video can't exist in multiple projects, if you drag a photo from a project to another project it moves that photo.

Album: Contains photos/videos from any number of projects but can only contain one instance of any photo or video.

Folder: Contains Projects and Albums.

So, Project A can contain Photo1 and Photo2 and Project B can contain Photo3 and Photo4. Album A can contain Photo1, Photo2 and Photo3. Album B can contain Photo2, Photo3, and Photo4. Folder A can contain Project A and Album B.

If you drag Photo1 from Project A to Project B it becomes part of Project B and is no longer part of Project A. It has no impact on Album A and Album B.

If you make a couple test case Project, Album Folders it'll become clear :)
