Q: Please tell me how to add a “collection” album to my Picasa.


A: Well, first of all it’s not a Collection ‘Album’ 

A collection is a grouping of folders or albums in the left navigation bar
Albums IS a Collection
People IS a Collection
Folders IS a Collection
When you’re in Flat Folder view, you have many more possible Collections:  Projects, Downloaded Albums, Exported Pictures, Other Stuff
To make a new collection you first decide what folders you want grouped into that collection then,
  1. Right-Click a folder
  2. Choose Move to Collection
  3. Choose New Collection, give it a name

I think you already watched this video about the Folder collection which describes the left navigation bar:
