    1. Go to Gallery -> Your Albums.
    2. Click "Add Media" near the top-right corner.
    3. Where it says, "Add media to," select "An album."
    4. To create a new album, select "Create an album" from the drop-down menu. (If you are not seeing this option on the mobile version, try the desktop version.)
    5. Where it says "People Who May Add media to," please choose "Owner Only." Otherwise, less attentive members will often upload their images to other people's albums.)
    6. To add photos to one of your existing albums, select the relevant album under "Your Albums."

    Just by uploading pics to the gallery, all your pics will automatically be viewable on your profile page under "media". Ive never downloaded into an album, but all my pics are right there on my profile page.

    Yeah. The album feature is mainly for people who want all their pictures in one spot, or they frequently upload images that don't fit in a particular gallery.

    Using private albums is less ideal for searching, as you can't use the gallery search to restrict results to a particular album. Accordingly, if the picture you're uploading has the potential to be useful as a reference image (such as molt or ventral sexing), we recommend using one of the public galleries.
