This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom 4: Multi Selecting Smart collections and Folders in Library Module has changed for the worse

In library, when multi-Selecting a folder and then a smart collection (for example I have color labels set up for smart collections) there is a bug causing it to select all images. Please help.

When all are selected, you should be able to click on the frame around an image (not the thumbnail, but the out-lying frame) to select just a single photo.

I was not able to reproduce the problem you describe. When I selected a folder (with one image selected) and then ctrl or cmd selected a smart collection, only the selected image was still selected.

It might help to know OS version and Lightroom version.
