I think that that is what a sales person does. A good software analyst 
solves problems that are there, but of which the users have not yet 
realized it exists.

Your initial question whas: what is the difference between folders, 
albums and collections. Their meanings in DigiKam have been explained at 
some length now. Is their meaning clear to you now (even if you had 
preferred to see another name for your workflow)?

Apart from the definition of the label "album" vs "directory" or 
"folder" (or other name for a collection of files), is there something 
else that holds you back from using DigiKam?

Best regards,
