Managing Pictures

When you want to add pictures (i.e. Photos) to your project you first need to decide whether you want to import a single photo file or a whole folder of pictures (picture collection).

A picture collection allows you to play a large amount of pictures as a slideshow whereas a single picture can also be placed as an element in a layout.
