    Hi Walter,

    If you're viewing your photos via Shortcuts > All Photos > and then by year, etc. these are actually shortcuts based on the embedded metadata of your image. Your photos themselves are stored in the folder you chose on import. You'll see those listed farther down the right-hand column under Folders.

    To move photos into Albums (which does not move the physical file, but instead creates a shortcut) just drag the image(s) into the desired Album.

    You can find more detailed information on organizing your images here: https://skylum.com/luminar/user-guides/chapter-11-organizing-images and https://skylum.com/luminar/user-guides/chapter-12-navigating-managing-your-library

    Please let me know if you have any other questions or if I can clarify anything.

    Chiming in a bit late here, but I already have all my images in albums that were created with Adobe Camera Raw.  How do I move those already created ones, that is listed as "folders" into albums? If I have to create each and everyone, including subfolders, that will take weeks to get done.

    Hi Sandra,

    Please use + to create a new album. You can only add the images to it, not folders.

    Then how about considering this a feature request for us people who have already created albums within a directory/folder tree?  I am not going to spend gods knows how long to create and add every photo into albums when I already have them created.
