Starting to get more into using categories, I was expecting this already to be an option, but it seems it’s not possible yet.
To give a bit of context to begin with, we’re going on a lot of work trips where the family tags along and while some of the photos are work related, most of them are not. I’m now in the progress of reorganizing my unsorted date folders and figured it to be a good idea to keep the trip photos all together and to use categories to be able to easily filter out work / non work photos.
So what I tried to do is to set up a travel folder and within that add all our trips with folders named “date-month destination”. Since most of the photos are non work related, I assigned the “no work” category to the travel folder.
When I now tried to apply the “work” category to a few work photos within a trip folder, I noticed that I’m unable to override / remove the inherited “no work” category.
That means while I’m able to filter for just the “work” photos, I don’t think I can display just the “no work” photos as that category remains inherited by the “work” photos.
I understand that I could get the results that I’d like by not applying the “no work” category to the entire folder tree, but I’m looking to simplify my life and thus only manually categorize the few “work” photos as I come across them instead of having to manually assign categories to hundreds or thousands of photos per folder.
I’m hoping that I’m missing something here, but if not I’d really like to see this option added to achieve what I’m looking for.
