Creating Photo Albums on the iPhone is an easy thing. You can create, edit and add photos to the photo album right from the Photo app on your iPhone or iPad. Here’s how to create photo albums on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch:
This feature of adding photos to a new / existing album is a new feature that arrived with iOS 5.0. So quite obviously, you need to have an updated iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch if you are going to follow the steps mentioned below. Make sure your iPhone or iPad is updated to at least iOS 5.0. Shall we get started?Step One: First off, it would be safer to sync all your photos via iTunes. Frequent sync is good and it keeps all your photos in a safe place in your system. You can check out our previous posts to make sure you get a fast sync via iTunes – or you can also manually copy all the photos to your system from the iPhone.
Step Two: Once you have the photos synced and the iPhone ready, disconnect it from the system. We are going to be creating the album right via iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch so we don’t need the system anymore.
On your iDevice, open the Photos App.
Step Three: As the default display, the Photos App shows the Camera Roll, the Photo Library, and any other album that you might have on the iPhone / iDevice. After the app opens up, choose any of the options from Camera Roll or Photo Library or any other album from which you are going to create your new album.
Simply put, check out all the places where you have photos for your new album. Assuming we start from the Camera Roll (the most obvious place as all your clicks on the iDevice goes into this one automatically), here’s what we’ll do next:
Step Four: Open the Camera Roll. (tap on it)
Now, on the top-right corner, there’s an arrow coming out of the box – tap it.
Select all the photos that you want to go into the new album you are creating.
Step Five: Once you begin selecting, the photos get a small red-circle with a tick.
After you’re done selecting, tap on ‘Add To’ at the bottom of the screen.
You get an option here – Add to a New Album or Add to an Existing Album.
Step Six: Choose Add to a New Album. Give a name to your new album. That’s it.
Step Seven – Adding photos to an existing album.
Well, as plain and simple as it sounds, go through the same method and just choose the other option (Add to an Existing Album) – and then choose the album you want the photos to be added to.
