Hello. Very basic question. Sorry if it's too basic ☺️

What is the difference between an Album and a Folder? Is an Album the same as a Collection?

I have LR on my iMac but I haven't used it for a while. I just want to organize my iPhone photos in LR Mobile on my phone and iPad.

Thanks    

I just answered my own question but just in case someone else is wondering, I kept searching and found this link:

Good link! Glad you found your answer. An album in Lightroom CC is like a collection in Lightroom Classic CC; that is to say, somewhat like a "play list" in iTunes or Spotify. Any one image can be in multiple albums, or you can remove it from all albums, in which case it is still in the catalog (in a folder, using Lightroom Classic CC terminology). Folders are representative of physical image locations, while collections/albums are just lists of images that "go together."

Hi Michael, thanks for your reply!

That's what was confusing me, the term "album" rather than "collection". I have LR 5 on my iMac but I haven't used it since I got an iPhone which is why I want to start using LR Mobile.

I also found Julianne Kost's LR Mobile CC videos. One from 2016 uses the term "collection" so Adobe must have changed it at some point? Anyway, I understand it now.

Thanks again,

Elaine

With the 2017 release of the Lightroom CC cloud ecosystem the name Album was adopted (well and in Adobe Revel before that also).

I remember reading that one of the reasons was that generally, people keep their photos in Albums.
