The cameras on our iphones make it easy and convenient to document all the important moments in your life. And all the other moments. Every. Single. Moment. At this point you may have so many random pictures on your iPhone, you can't find any of the actually important ones. If that sounds like you, it's time to organize your photos into albums.

To create an album in your Photos app, go to Albums and tap the plus icon.

Name your album and tap Save. 

Tap the photos you want in your album and then tap Done.


You can also select the photos you want and then create the new album.

In Camera Rol tap Select and then tap the photos you want to put in an album.

Tap Add To and scroll down to New Album.

Name your album and save.


Please note that deleting photos from Camera Roll will also delete them from any albums they are in. If you accidentally delete an image, don't panic, just shake to undo.
