I have a Motorola Droid phone; how do I move pictures from one album to another?


AC Question

I uploaded the picturs from my home computer (off my old phone) and can't figure out how to move pitures in between albums. Can someone tell me ho to do it?

An "album" in Gallery is a folder on the phone. Use your file manager app to move the files from the folder they're in to the folder you want them in.

Be careful. If you have 2 folders, one names sdcard0/DCIM/Camera/Vacation and another one named sdcard0/DCIM/Vacation, you'll have 2 albums named Vacation. The album name only picks up the last folder name. So try not to duplicate folder names in different parts of storage or you'll have a problem figuring out which Vacation folder the picture in one of the Vacation albums is in. (You'll have to go looking for it with the file manager.)
