Albums are a powerful sub-system within the new G1 site. They allow you to organize images into your own private categories and act as a menuing system or front end to your portfolio. You can also create sub-albums, or albums within albums, which can really add to the organization. Some people have had problems in creating the albums. Here is a brief tutorial on how to get started.
Step 1: Create the Album. To get to the place where you create albums, be sure you are logged on and then click on the Portfolios option. Here is a screen shot:

Circled in red is where you click and after you click you'll see a new page and then you'll see the option for "My Albums" - see the red arrow above. Click on the option "My Albums".
Step 2: You'll now see this screen:

Click on the option: Create a New Album.
Step 3: Now you'll see this screen.

Fill in the two fields and leave the check box as "no".
Step 4: Now this screen will appear:

You won't see a thumbnail photo at this point since you haven't declared one yet.
Look over on the right and you'll see your options at this point.
If you click on Upload photos, then you'll get the screen where you can upload one or more photos. All of those photos will go by default into the album. You can override this by changing the default category, but you won't want to at this point. You can also choose other categories.
Use the "Sort" option to create the order which images in the album appear and also to choose which image will be your thumbnail image for the album.
If you click on "Edit" then you can change the name or description of the album or the order in which photos appear or even how they'll be displayed. Some of the options don't fully work at this point, but the ones I've checked green below seem to work just fine:

If you have existing images that you want to move into an album, you'll have to wait until the edit mode for existing photos is working again, and then you can choose a new category for a photo from a dropdown and your album will appear in that dropdown and can be chosen.
Stay tuned for part II of the tutorial later.

Reply With Quote get the gold star of the day for being a proactive problem solver. Thanks for taking the time to do this for those of us to do dumb (or lazy) to figure it out on our own.

I owe you a beer...and a good one.
My goal in life is to rid the world of ignorance...mainly my own.
