How do I create & add photos to an iOS app albums?

The iOS app allows you to create a new album, add a photo to an existing album, and remove photos from an existing album.

Features that are temporarily disabled in the iOS app (but will be back) include:

  • Adding more than 1 photo to an album at a time
  • Sharing an album from the iOS app
  • Deleting an album

Remember, you can do all of the above actions when you login to Picturelife via the web!

How to find existing albums

Albums can be found from any screen by tapping the Navigation Bar on the bottom of the screen, then tapping Albums.

You can sort and arrange albums by tapping Sort, located in the bottom right corner of the Albums screen, then choosing the order in which you want to view your existing albums.

Create a new album

To create an album using the iOS app, you'll first need to select a single photo or video that you want to include in the album. You can always add more photos and videos at a later date.

  1. Find a photo that you want to include in the new album
  2. Tap the selected photo to open it in full screen
  3. Tap Add to Album - you can find this option in two places:
    • Open the Quick Navigation menu by holding your finger on the selected photo; or
    • Opens the pull-up navigation menu by tapping the Me menu bar at the bottom of the screen
  4. Tap Add to Album
  5. Tap Add to new album
  6. Create a name for the album
  7. Adjust the album's privacy by tapping Private and then selecting your preferred privacy level (skip this step to keep the album private)
  8. Tap Create

You'll see a notification appear, confirming that the album has been created and the selected photo has been added to the new album.

    

Add a photo to an existing album

  1. Find and open the photo that you want to add to an existing album
  2. Tap Add to Album - you can find this option in two places:
    • Tap and hold your finger over the photo - this will open the Quick Navigation menu; or
    • Tap the menu bar at the bottom of the screen - this opens a detailed navigation menu
  3. Scroll through your existing albums to find the one you want to add the photo to
  4. Tap that album's cover photo to finish the process - the photo will automatically be added to that album! 

    

Remove a photo from an existing album

You can remove a photo from an album without actually deleting it from your Picturelife library - using the Remove from Album option only removes the photo from its current album organization - it does NOT delete the photo from your Picturelife library.

To remove a photo from an album, via the iOS app:

  1. Find and open the photo that you want to add to an existing album
  2. Find Remove from Album - you can find this option in two places:
    • Tap and hold your finger over the photo - this will open the Quick Navigation menu; or
    • Tap the menu bar at the bottom of the screen - this opens a detailed navigation menu
  3. Tap Remove from Album

That's it! The photo will be removed from the album.
