In this area, add your images to the project's photo collection.
If you save and close your project then reopen it, the associated photo collection will still be linked to it.
The photo collection allows you to check on the status of used and unused images. It allows you to sort by rating, file name and date, which will be useful when using certain auto-tools to build your album.
