Moving photos from a home page file to a photo album??

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

When I right click on the file, it does not give me an option to "create an album" from the file as the tutorial says. There is a move option, but it links back to the home page files. Most of my files are photo files, I want to move them to photo albums.

Dropbox "albums" are about to go away, if they go away with "carousel".

I would love to know this as well! I don't use Carousel, but I have a Dropbox Photos folder that seems to be in a totally different place than my Files folder. I can't add Dropbox Photos to desktop sync (Mac Yosemite). I would love to go through the photo files in my Files folder (organized under various subfolders such as Blogpics, etc.) and drag and drop them into albums in Dropbox photos. But apparently there is no easy way to do that? There's no "Upload" button in Photos or Photo albums the way there is in the Files area of Dropbox. Somebody help!

I want to be able to easily translate those folders into albums - Jae Senji

 

What does Jae mean?  To me a "folder" and an "album" are just different names for the same thing.

Rick M. - Are you kidding me with that question?! Jae is my name which is completely obvious! Are you ok? Also, there are FOLDERS that can have any type of files in them, and then there are ALBUMS that are specially created by the user and have referenced photos only in them. They are definitely not the same thing.

Rick M. - Also, why are you referencing a quote from a comment I had left here ("I want to be able to easily translate those folders into albums - Jae Senji") that Dropbox has already removed from this thread due to me copying and pasting the same comment to a few other threads related to these photo issues? If you're going to reference my comment, either first re-implement my comment here in this thread so readers can see what you're referring to, or go to the thread where my comment still remains and respond to it there.
