This feature request is not easy to formulate, but I’ll try my best in English.
I would like to have the ability to separate my photo collection into subcollections.
Some of these subcollections should not always be visible in Calendar view, Map view and possibly also not visible in All Photos.
But I should have the ability to control the Calendar view to see only the photos of one subcollection (not visible by default) and go through those photos.
There is a switch for “Don’t show in Calendar” in the Folder view which is good, but can only be set there.
The new Categories feature can be a step in this way, but here everything is visible by default and I can only filter, if I want to see a subset of the categories.
My use case for this feature is, because my collection is made of different photo sets:
- Photos since I met my wife
- Photos before I met my wife (my lonesome travels)
- My archive family photos
- Construction documentation of a flat and a house
- Various HDR, panorama and other stacks and various test photographs
For the stacks, the “Don’t show in Calendar” option is useful and enough.
For the other ones, a separation would do good.
For example I don’t want to have the over 6000 photos documenting different construction phases all over my Calendar view, but on occasion I would like to see them (and then probably only them) in the Calendar. They are organized in a folder structure where one can find them easily, but some phases were running parallel and there a timeline view would help.
The photos of my lonesome travels are not secret, but as only I was there, they are not necessarily interesting for my wife or my son.
As one possible solution I would propose a special view of the Categories where I can check them for visibility in the Calendar view, maybe with the ability to save configurations and have some default settings for the visibility.
