Create New Gallery Photo Album on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to create a new album in the Gallery application on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen, we will see five different icons.
We need to open the Applications folder, and to do that we need the icon in the middle at the bottom of the screen. It is a grid made up of white dots.
Press down on this icon, and the Applications folder will open.
Now, we need to find the Gallery application, and it is the first icon in the second row on this phone. It has an icon of a photo of what looks like some sand dunes. Underneath the photo icon, it says, "Gallery".
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.
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".
To make sure we're in "Albums", press down on that option if needed.
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.
Now, we have the option to input a name for the album.
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.
Now, we can enter a new name. For this demonstration, we'll just put "Family".
Next, we have the option to choose where we store the album. Currently, in the gray bar it says, "Phone Storage".
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.
Currently, the green circle indicates that we are using "Phone storage". To change this option, just press down on the option desired.
Since we're happy with "Phone storage", we will simply press "CANCEL".
To continue, press down on the "OK" button.
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.
Let's press down on "MOVE". Now, we are going to have to select an album to move some photos from.
We're gong to use "Screenshots", so press down on that album.
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.
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.
Press down on "NEXT", and that's going to add the two photos we selected to our new album.
At the bottom of the screen, a message appears stating that it is "Moving selected data to /storage/emulated/0/Pictures/Family".
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.
If we press down on this album, it will open. Then we can see the two photos we just moved into it.
This concludes our tutorial on how to create a new album in the Gallery application on an HTC One M8. If you have any questions or comments about this video or about the process that you have seen in this video, then please leave them in the comment section below, and we shall answer them for you.
