    Yep! When the phone discovers a new folder with photos inside it automatically starts backing them up to the cloud. I assume the Gallery app will notice the folder automatically as well.

    I don't use the cloud to back them up. Just wanted a way of sorting photos out and into albums from the gallary

    I don't find any way you can create album Like Camera Photos, Download, Facebook photos etc.. it just puts all the pic in one place. Does any one have any app that can divide this photos in different albums...?

    This is not an issue. It's the way how CM gallery works. Album are created automatically based on folders structure. Use file manger to organize the pictures or download anoter gallery app with that feature

    that is the one thing that I miss from my iphone. I could easily create an album, select my pics and send them straight to my newly created folder. If anyone got a trick, that is easy and doesnt require me to be sober in order to do it, then PLEASE SHARE !

    Go to the pic you want to add to a new album. Tap the 3 dots on top. Select "add to". You will get the option of creating a new collection. Once you create it you can add other pics to it.

    Way after the original post. The OP6 gallery still does not allow creating a new album/collection/folder. I tried the method mentioned above by creating a new folder in Pictures. Gallery does not recognize it. The solution I found is a free app called Piktures. Piktures allows the creation of additional albums and moving images between different albums. Even after creating and populating a new album it is not recognized by Gallery. Gallery is out, Piktures is in on my phone. What is up with this deficiency? Gallery on other android phones does not have this problem.
