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.

Creating a Sub-Album

  1. Click the Albums icon in the left sidebar.
  2. Open the Album where you want to place a nested Sub-Album, then click the Add New Album icon in the right sidebar or choose Organize > New Album from the operating system menu bar.
  3. Add an Album Name, assign relevant Categories and click Apply and Create.

Moving and Organizing Sub-Albums

Convert a top-level Album into a Sub-Album

Use Drag and Drop – Click and drag the Album you’d like to nest as a Sub-Folder onto another Album. This will place it inside the Album as a Sub-Album.

Move Albums with the Mylio Clipboard
  1. Click and drag the Album or Sub-Album you want to move to the bottom of the screen. This will automatically open the Mylio Clipboard.
  2. Navigate to another Album, or the top-level Albums View where you want your Album to reside.
  3. Click and drag the Album from the Mylio Clipboard to its new location.
  4. When you’re done, Clear the Mylio Clipboard to close it.
