The topics

Understanding the topics.


What do the topics allow ?

Topics will allows you to sort all the resources and your photos in the PhotosArtist software as you please.
For example, you can create a topic “Julie’s birthday”.

Later you will be able to link it to the photos or effects you want.

When you import photos, they automatically inherit a topic created on the fly, named “import” and followed by the date and time. You will therefore be able to associate your photos to a topic you have just create, either by renaming the topic created on the fly during the import, or by migrating all elements from one topic to a new one…

In the same manner, when creating a background or an effect, you have the possibility to associate the new resource with an existing topic.

There can only be one topic per item (unlike keywords where you can have 4).

We are going to explain all this.
