You can create albums on your iPhone to make finding and viewing photos easier. You can place photos in an album from Camera Roll as well as from Photo Stream or from Collections, which include the photos you sync from your computer. You can sync albums from your computer to your iPhone, but albums you create on your iPhone don't sync to your computer.

The original photos remain where you copy them from. Albums lets you put related photos together for easier viewing. To create a photo album, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Photos icon on the Home screen to open Photos.

  2. Tap Albums at the bottom of the screen.

    In Albums, tap Camera Roll or another album to see thumbnails of the photos in that album, and then tap the thumbnails of the images you want to include in the album.
