The Organizer is a special Explorer window, displaying the CodedColor Wordirectory. All write operations of CodedColor are done in this location on your disk, whether you export albums, convert or mail images, create album shortcuts or add images to catalogs. Even the Recent List of edited images is kept here and can be browsed.


In fact, whenever you find images in the Organizer structure, the layout switches to the Explorer Imageview and you won't even notice you are inside the Organizer. Most images in the Organizer are linkfiles, like those in Catalogs, Print Orders and Search results, so the storage space in the Organizer is kept to a minimum. If you export albums or do batch conversions, the converted images are stored in the organizer file structure.
