  1. One of the amazing things about Lightroom is that there are usually several ways to do things, and one can also add images to a target collection using the Painter Tool. This is a fast way to add multiple images because you can ‘spray’ a group of images by holding down the left mouse key and dragging, and you don’t have to target the little ‘Quick Collection’ circle icon in the upper right of each image. Just click on the Painter tool in the bottom toolbar, click on the little arrows beside it, and select ‘Target Collection’. (If you don’t have a bottom toolbar, press ‘T’).
