When I've got a given album open is it not possible to do a select all (ctrl - a)? If I got to the filmstrip and select the first one and shift click on the last one then i can select all of the images. Am I missing something here? If I got to edit, select all is greyed out.
You can do a select all in the grid view (hit G or click the grid icon lower left). For some reason this doesn't work in the film strip
