Organize your photos with albums in the Amazon Photos app.

With an Amazon Prime account you can store an unlimited number of photos in Amazon Cloud. When you have thousands (or even tens of thousands) of photos, it can be difficult to keep them organized. But albums in the Amazon Photos app can help keep your memories organized in folders that you can customize yourself. Here's how.

How to create a new album

Whether you already have dozens of albums in Amazon Cloud or none, you can easily create new ones in the Amazon Photos app on your iPhone or iPad with a few simple steps.

  1. Open the Amazon Photos app.
  2. Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner of the screen.
  3. Tap Albums.

How to turn pre-existing folders into albums

  1. Open the Amazon Photos app.
  2. Tap the Menu icon in the upper left corner of the screen.
  3. Tap Albums.
