Move a single file in a Collection to another Collection

Jan 25, 2014 8:37 AM

I mistakenly created a collection when only one file was highlighted.  I made another collection with all the other files I wanted in it, but I can't drag that one file from the filmstrip...


There must be another way!

    Drag from the grid — click on the center of the photo (not the grey rectangle surrounding the photo) and drag

    Sounds like that image is also in the second collection you made.  Check and see.  Lightroom will not move an image from one collection to another if it already resides in that collection.  Which is a great feature.  Stops you duplicating images inadvertantly.
