Create Virtual Photo Albums in the OneDrive app for Windows Phone

The OneDrive app for Windows Phone now lets you create and share photo albums from the photos that you are storing on OneDrive without copying or moving photos from one folder to another.

Create an Album in OneDrive

Open up the OneDrive app, tap ALBUMS. Then tap the “new album” icon on the bottom of the screen.

OneDrive AlbumsAlbum1

Input a name for your album in the space provided and tap the checkmark icon on the bottom of the screen.

Scroll through your photos and tap the ones that you want to include in the album. Tap the checkmark at the bottom of the screen when you are finished selecting photos for the album.




At this point you can tap the plus icon to add more pictures to the album, remove pictures from the album, share the album with your family and friends or rename the album by tapping the icons on the bottom of the screen.

You can also pin the album to your phone’s home screen by tapping the three dots in the lower right hand corner and tapping “pin.”


Share a Photo Album with Friends & Family

When you click the share icon on the bottom of the album screen, you can invite people to view the album or you can create and share a link to the album via email, text message, to Twitter, Facebook, etc. You can also view and manage the people to whom you’ve shared a link to the album.
