Creating folders for your pictures

At some point, you’ll likely have so many single pictures showing in the Photos app that navigating to a specific picture is difficult, if not seemingly impossible. When this happens, you’ll need to create subfolders to organize those pictures. Here you’ll create subfolders; in the next task, you’ll learn how to move pictures to these new folders.

Create folders

  1. While in the Photos app, click any Back arrows as applicable to return to the Home page.
