Description

When collecting images by tag (and perhaps other methods, I have not tested) I found that if an images is tagged, but in a collapsed group, it will not show. I find this behavior a bit misleading, and could cause users to have trouble finding photos.

For example:
IMG_1 - tag A
IMG_2 - tag B
IMG_3 - tag B
IMG_4 - group head
IMG_5
IMG_6
IMG_7 - tag A

collect: tag: tag A (if groups collapsed)
IMG_1

collect: tag: tag A (if groups expanded)
IMG_1
IMG_7

In this scenario it is obvious, but if you have 100 images with tag A, and 5 of those are in collapsed groups, it would be hard to tell that 5 photos are missing.

I propose all images meeting the collect criteria should be displayed regardless of if it is in a collapsed group or not.

Note that IMG_5, IMG_6, and IMG_7, are part of the group of IMG_4 (my formatting got lost somehow).
