7.4. Albums

No matter how nicely you title, sort, and arrange photos in your digital shoebox, it's still a shoebox at this point, with all your photos piled together in one vast collection. To really become organized and present your photos to others, you need to arrange your photos into albums.

In iPhoto terminology, an album is a subset of pictures from your Library. It's a collection of photos that you group for easy access and viewing. Represented by a little album-book icon in the Source list at the left side of the screen, an album can consist of any photos that you select, or it can be a smart album that iPhoto assembles by matching certain criteria that you set up—all pictures that you took in 2004, for example, or all photos that you've rated four stars or higher.
