Reducing Clutter by Stacking Your Photos

This is one of my favorite new features added in version 3, because it lets you reduce “photo clutter” and makes things more organized when working in the Photo Browser. It’s called “stacking,” and it lets you stack similar photos together, leaving just one photo to represent a stack of photos. So, if you took 120 shots at the rehearsal dinner, and you’ve already sorted the best of the bunch into a collection, you don’t have to have 120 shots cluttering up your catalog. Instead, you can have just one representative photo, and underneath it are the 120 others.

Step One

With the Photo Browser open in the Organizer, hold the Control key on your keyboard and click on all the photos you want to add to your stack (or if the images are contiguous, simply click the first image in the series, press-and-hold the Shift key, and click on the last image in the series). Once they’re all selected, go under the Organizer’s Edit menu, under Stack, and choose Stack Selected Photos in the submenu.
