Make a New Collection

How can I make a new collection?

A Collection is a set of files belonging to a particular project.  Collections can be used to store data for local use with an individual project or to share data among multiple users. With the latter option, you may want to designate the collection as the Main Collection for faster access as shown in the "Designate a Main Collection" lesson.

Open a Dialog to Create a New Collection

To open a New Collection dialog, click File → New Collection... .

Name the Collection and Specify its Location

Type the name of the new collection and specify the location, then click OK.

View the Collection

The new "Fluorescent Proteins" collection is shown. To add files to the collection, click the Import/Export menu button. See the Add a File to a Collection lesson.
