Save Time with Target Albums / Collections in Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic CC and Lightroom 6

Set Collections in Lightroom Classic CC and Albums in Lightroom CC as TargetsWith albums in the cloud-based Lightroom CC and collections in Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom 6 and earlier versions, one usually drags photos to them to assign those photos to them. Dragging takes time and can be a hassle if you have to scroll to your album or collection. Now we have functionality in both applications to quickly add photos by selecting the photos and then just typing a one-letter shortcut.
