You’ve probably taken thousands of photos with your iPhone over the years, but if you don’t take the time to organize those pictures, it will be difficult to find specific shots. One way to arrange photos on your iPhone is to create albums for them.

Once photos have been added to an album, you can sort and filter the images, build slideshows, and share with others. And if you sync your photos via iCloud, your albums appear on all your Apple devices. Here’s how it works.

To create a photo album, open the Apple Photos(Opens in a new tab) app on your iPhone. To view all your photos, select the Library option at the bottom or choose Albums > Recents.

Take a look through your photos to get a sense of how you’d want to organize your folders into albums. For instance, you can create albums for specific events, people, or places. You can also group photos by type, such as clipart or paintings.
