Renaming Photo Albums

Step 1: Launch the Photos app and tap on the “Edit” button in the top right corner of the screen. Step 2: Tap on the album’s label to pull up the keyboard and rename the album. Press “Done” on the keyboard when you’re finished. On the iPad, this process is identical.

Moving Albums

Step 1: Tap on the “Edit” button in the top right corner of the screen. Step 2: Use the bars on the right side of each row to rearrange the photo albums. Tap and hold on the bars, then drag the album to a different position in the list. It’s also important to note that you can’t move any albums above the Camera Roll. If you’re using an iPad, you can skip step one and just tap, hold, and drag an album to move it.

Rearranging Album Photos

Step 1: Open an album on your device. Next, tap on the “Edit” button in the top right corner of the screen. Step 2: Tap and hold on a photo, then drag it to any position in the album. These may not be the most complicated tasks, but they are certainly helpful if you are looking to rearrange and manage your photo albums a little better.
