Nested Sub-Albums are a great way to add additional layers of organization to your photo library. Sub-Albums can be helpful in a variety of situations. Here are a few examples:
- Birthday Photos – The top-level Album could be the Birthdays over the Years with Sub-Albums for each year’s celebration.
- Kitchen Remodel – The top-level Album could be Kitchen Remodel with Sub-Albums for Before, In-progress, and After photos.
- Submissions for a photography competition – The top-level Album could be for all competitions with Sub-Albums for each individual competition. You could nest an additional Sub-Album inside another Sub-Album to group images that were accepted or won awards.

Moving and Organizing Sub-Albums
