I have uploaded a load of images to my portfolio, but don't seem to be able to access my albums. I want to add these to my albums but don't know if I should create a new one as I don't know if one exists already. Any help anyone can ofer would be appreciated

You need to make an Album to upload photos into (I have several with different titles and subjects).

Go to your 'Profile', at the bottom of the page click on 'Albums'. About half way down the page click on 'Add User Album'. This will bring up a pop up for you to make your Album. It asks for a Title and a Description, then you can choose either 'Public' or 'Private'. When you've done that click 'Submit'. This is your new Album.

Now click into that Album and you will find three boxes 'Arrange Photos', 'Edit Photos' and 'Add Photos'. If you click on the 'Add Photos' you will get another pop up which will ask........................Ah!

After all that typing I've just found out there is a glitch in the system and something has gone wrong - I'll put in a report and the guys-in-the-back-room will sort it when they get in!! Grin (You should have been asked where to get the photos from, but when you click on it it takes you back to your 'Profile'!)

Hi Pauline.

If you go into settings from the dropdown from your username you should see the option to manage what you see when visiting your profile. This can be changed to "Albums" so then you should.see your albums grouped together.

If you go to your portfolio and see your photos then scroll to the bottom and you should see the word "Albums" in a green block, clicking this should take you to your album view. Smile

I've been over into your 'Profile' and can see 2 empty Albums - so I think you were just stating that you couldn't upload into them! As I said right at the end of my blurb (sorry about that, but it might help someone else so I've left it!), there is a glitch. Hopefully it'll be sorted later! Grin

Thanks all, the problem is I have previously created albums and before I created new ones, I wanted to find what I already had - still struggling with that. Would they have been deleted because I haven't been very active lately

Hi Pauline.

First, the site doesn't remove or delete anything form your pf just because it has been idle a while.
You have 2 albums - 'Wales' and 'Slow Shutter Speed'. Both are empty.

To move images to an album, double click on the album you want to use and a new page opens. It will look as if you have been taken back to the front page of your pf, but if you look over to the right you'll see 3 new buttons - see my screenshot - Arrange Photos, Edit Album and Add Photos. Click on the last button and a pop-up appears showing all the images in your pf, plus the blue text next to the search field which enables you to upload images directly into the album form your device.

Brilliant, thanks, must have been getting muddled up with another site where I have got multiple albums.
