In your browser, you can combine thumbnail previews in groups. So you can, for example, summarize a series of images consisting of many similar designs as one thumbnail.
First, select at least two thumbnail preview images in the Browser. Now you have three ways to take the images in a group.
Click with the right mouse button on one of the thumbnails. It opens a context menu as shown in Figure below.
Click on “Grouping” and then on “Group“. So you take all selected images together in a group. Depending on which of the pictures you run the command, this is used as a displayed thumbnail preview image for the whole group.
If you have selected the images, and then move the mouse to the upper right corner of the thumbnail previews, a small clickable icon “Group Selected Items” appears.
Depending on which of the pictures you run the command, this is used as a displayed thumbnail preview image for the whole group.
After you have selected the images, press the key combination [Ctrl + G] to unite the images in a group.
All four images are now grouped together, the total number of the combined images is shown in the top right corner of the thumbnail.
Collapse and expand a group
Move the cursor back to the upper right corner of the thumbnail preview, where normally the number of grouped images is displayed. As you hover the mouse over it, the display changes to a direction indicator icon. By clicking on it you can quickly expand and collapse the grouped images.
Alternatively, you can also use the keyboard shortcut [Ctrl + D].
Click with the right mouse button on a group of pictures and choose “Group” – “Ungroup“>. Alternatively, you can also use the keyboard shortcut [Ctrl + Shift + G].
The group is now disbanded.
Splitting a group
You can also split an existing group into several groups.
Expand the appropriate group,click with the right mouse button on the image, from which a new group to be created, and then on “Group” -> “Split Group“.
In this way you can quickly split one large group into smaller groups.
Choose a display picture for the group
You can choose which thumbnail is to be used as the main preview of group images for display.
Expand the group and click the right mouse button on the image to be displayed and select “Grouping” -> “Move to Top of Group“.
Remove images from the group
Expand the appropriate group and click the right mouse button on the image that you want to remove from the group and choose “Group” -> “Move Out from Group“.
