Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (macOS) and choose any of the available options from the context-menu: 
Create Collection "[Folder Name]" or Create Collection Set "[Folder Name]", if you've selected a single folder.
Create Collections From Selected Folders or Create Collection Sets From Selected Folders, if you've selected multiple folders.
For detailed information, see Create collections or collection sets from folders.

Create collection from a photo pin in the Map module

In the Map module, you can now easily add a group of photos at the same location on the map to a collection. To do so, simply right-click any photo pin or group of pins on the map and choose Create Collection from the context-menu.

Create smart collections based on a new rule - 'Has Edits'

In the Create Smart Collection dialog, a new rule 'Has Edits' has been added to the Develop category. A smart collection created based on the new rule 'Has Edits' 'Is True' includes images that have adjustments applied and also the images that only have a crop (and no other adjustments) applied.

Note:

The existing rule 'Has Adjustments' includes images that have adjustments applied, but excludes those images that only have a crop (and no other adjustments) applied. If you want to include cropped images in the smart collection, then choose 'Has Edits' in the rule instead.
