    if i tap the menu buttons on the top right when inside an album or looking at an individual photo, MOVE is the first option. i am using the stock GALLERY on my LG V40.

    That's why Windows is so much easier. Just copy and paste. Why can't android apps do that. Even the stock gallery on my android tablet can't do a simple copy and paste without going into the stock folder app to copy and paste. Moving a file can be dangerous as there are lots of posts about loosing the file completly.

    The thing about "albums" in the stock Gallery app is that each album is actually a separate directory. Most Gallery apps aren't also file managers, so they don't let you physically move the file from one directory to another. You'd have to use a separate file manager app for that. In addition, most Gallery apps won't recognize nested albums (i.e., a sub-directory of a another album directory) -- they'll just show as a separate album.

    If you use Google Photos, the albums are more of a virtual construct -- all of your photos are backed up as one gigantic chronological mass, but you can then create albums and assign photos to them. A single photo can be in multiple albums, without having to duplicate the file. It takes a little getting used to, but it's so much easier to organize photos this way for me.
