How do I use albums?

  • Updated

Albums are folders that you can set up within a gallery. For example, if the Smith Wedding is your gallery, you might have albums for Ceremony, Reception, etc. For a sporting event, a photographer might set up albums for each team, game, and/or day of a tournament.

Photos that have been sorted into albums will still remain in the All Photos view for the gallery, as well. If you'd like your clients to only see the photos organized into albums, you can go to the Advanced tab of the Gallery Settings and toggle on the Hide the “All Photos” album option.  

Need to share or deliver files to just a vendor? Check out our other article here on creating vendor albums.

Even More Helpful Hints

  • Photos that have been sorted into albums will still remain in the All Photos view for the gallery as well. Deleting an album will NOT delete the photos in the album.

  • An album can contain either photos or sub-albums, but not both. You can add a sub-album to an album by clicking into the album and then clicking Add Sub-Album in the top right.

  • The More Options button on the Manage Albums view will allow you to sort albums alphabetically, generate automatic passwords for the albums, and download a CSV file of album passwords.

  • Click All Photos Not in Albums to view the photos that have not been sorted into albums. Photos that are not sorted into an album will still show in the All Photos album, if you have that album enabled.
