You can create various photo albums in the Photos app depending completely on how you’d like to organize your shots. Let’s say you want to create a photo album for your favorite macro shots. To do this:

  • Open the Photos app.

  • Select Albums.

  • Tap the + symbol.

  • Select either New Album or New Shared Album.

  • Give your new album a title you like and tap Save.

  • You can now select photos to add to the new album and tap Done when you're finished. Or, tap Done and add photos later.

Your created album will now appear in the list of your other albums.

 

How to Add Images to Your Photo Album (in the future):

  • Open the Album with the images you want to add to a different Album.

  • Tap the pictures you want to add. Then tap Add To, and select your desired album. Your photos are now in that album.

 

How to Delete a Photo Album:
