How to create an iPhone photo album

Here’s what to do:

  • 1. Open your photos app
  • 2. Select Albums at the bottom of the screen
  • 3. Tap on the cross icon in the upper left corner
  • 4. Now tap on New Album
  • 5. Enter a name for the album
  • 6. Click Save
  • 7. Select some photos to add
  • 8. Tap Done in the top right

After you create an album, you can edit its name at any time.

Just navigate into the album, select the three dots icon in the top right corner, then tap Rename Album.

How to add photos to iPhone photo album

You add photos when you first create an album.

However, it is also possible to add more photos to an album at any time.

Here’s the easiest way to do that…

  • 1. Go to your Photos app
  • 2. Now select Albums > Recent
  • 3. Press Select in the top right
  • 4. Tap each photo you want to add to an album
  • 5. Now tap on the share button (a square with an up arrow) on the bottom left.
  • 6. Next, choose Add to Album.
  • 7. Then tap the album you want to add photos to

You can also change the album’s main photo – instead of using the default first photo.

How to delete an iPhone photo album

It is always possible to delete an iPhone photo album.

Here’s what to do…

  • 1. Open your Photos app
  • 2. Select Albums at the bottom of the screen
  • 3. Now tap See All in the top right corner
  • 4. Select Edit in the top right
  • 5. Now tap on the red circle for all the albums you want to delete
  • 6. Next, choose Select Next Album

It is important that you do not lose the photos in the album – they remain stored on your iPhone.

My four-year-old daughter hates her name - people say it's unusual, but I love it
I'm engaged to someone 7000 miles away - I send her £400 a month

However, the album itself will be deleted, so you will lose your photo curation.

If you ever delete photos from an album, make sure you choose Remove from Album and not Delete. This protects your images from absolute deletion.
