I have put about 3k photos in to albums on my mobile android. It has obviously taken forever. Now I have logged on to my pc to start a project to make photo books and I can't find the albums?! This is a disaster...can anyone tell me where they would be in the ablum format. They are just there in photos in time (ish) order!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I created an album using the Dropbox app on my Android phone last week.
I want to add another picture to that album using the Dropbox website. I can't figure out how to do that. I went to the Photos section and found the photo, but I don't know what to do from there.
There's an answer to this question from 2016: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Photos-videos/How-can-I-add-photos-to-an-album/m-p/199428#M7238. However, that doesn't work for me -- when I right-click on the photo (in Firefox and Chrome), I get the browser context menu. There's no "Add to album" option.
I am just starting to create albums on my Chromebook. I am concerned that this facility has been dropped from all platforms but Android. Is this the writing on the wall for the albums feature and will Dropbox be dropping them from Android as well? In other words, am I wasting my time creating albums that will soon be defunct?
I just tried using the workaround of sharing a link to the album but the link times out on every computer i try it on.
i have just spent hours trying to categorise photos on my phone in the app which saves them in albsum. why is the app still doing this if the feature doesnt work on desktop. infuriating!!!
any ideas of what to do now?
In addition to albums, sort by EXIF data is only available on Android (maybe iOS, I have no idea) too! Clearly the Android app is trying to replicate a gallery which I really like, but the experience is absolutely half baked. At the very least if there are no plans to add it to desktop, at least remove it from Android. It has been a terribly frustrating experience trying Dropbox out.
