Create a Collection Set in Lightroom Classic CC: Overview

            You can create a collection set in Lightroom Classic CC. A collection set does not contain any photos. Instead, a collection set contains one or more collections in Lightroom Classic CC. Collection sets let you organize and manage your photo catalog. For example, if you have many different collections of wedding photos, you can create a “Weddings” collection set to contain them.
