    Press down on the "Gallery" icon to open up the "Gallery" application. What we want to do in this video is demonstrate how to create a new album.

    To do that, we need to first make sure we are in the "Albums" section. It should say "Albums" in the top left-hand corner.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    If we press down on the three horizontal lines on the left side of the word "Albums", we can choose between different sections. These include "Timeline", "Albums", "Tags", and "Downloads & screenshots".

  11. 11
    To make sure we're in "Albums", press down on that option if needed.

  12. 12
    Now, we need to press on the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen. There are three small white dots in a vertical line. Press down on this icon to bring up a short menu.

    We want the first option on the menu that says "Create album", so press down on that.

  14. 14
    Now, we have the option to input a name for the album.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    The words "New album 1" are highlighted in blue, so if we press the back arrow key on the keyboard, it will delete the entire name.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now, we can enter a new name. For this demonstration, we'll just put "Family".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Next, we have the option to choose where we store the album. Currently, in the gray bar it says, "Phone Storage".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Press down on that gray bar, and we have two options. We can store the album on the phone, or we can use the SE card to store it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Currently, the green circle indicates that we are using "Phone storage". To change this option, just press down on the option desired.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Since we're happy with "Phone storage", we will simply press "CANCEL".

  21. 21
    To continue, press down on the "OK" button.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Now, we can add files to our new album. A message will appear that says, "Add files to album - To save your new folder, Family, you need to copy or move some files to it now." Basically, we cannot create an empty album. In order to create an album, we have to add some files to it. We can do that by pressing either the "COPY" or the "MOVE" option.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Let's press down on "MOVE". Now, we are going to have to select an album to move some photos from.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    We're gong to use "Screenshots", so press down on that album.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Now, we'll select some photos by tapping on them. A checkmark in a circle will appear in the middle of each photo after we tap on it. This means they are selected.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Now, at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen where it says "NEXT", we can see it also says the number "2" in parentheses. This means we have selected two photos.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Press down on "NEXT", and that's going to add the two photos we selected to our new album.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    At the bottom of the screen, a message appears stating that it is "Moving selected data to /storage/emulated/0/Pictures/Family".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Now, if we scroll down a little we can see the album we have just created, titled "Family". It has been successful, and our "Family" album has the number "2" in parentheses, indicating it contains two photos.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    If we press down on this album, it will open. Then we can see the two photos we just moved into it.
