This guide deals with how you create and configure new archives in FotoStation.
What are archives?
When using FotoStation to view and organize your files, whether on a single computer or in a network environment, the easiest way to repeatedly access the files is by using an archive. In simple terms, an archive is similar to a shortcut in Windows or an alias in Mac OS – it works as a pointer to a folder containing files that you want to view and work with. However, an archive is much more than a simple pointer to a folder on a disk. Archives can be configured with a number of advanced options that control how the content of that collection is displayed, filtering of the content, and much more.
