    I have a bunch of photos in 'Unsorted' that I would like to move. How do I do this?

    I gave the instructions below... where were INCORRECT. Please do not use this method to move a photo. It will work if you're moving an entire "album".
    My apologies!!

    First... practice this on a "test" photo to make sure I'm giving you the right steps.
    Select the photo and then select "delete". It will give you the option to delete or move. Then just tell it which folder to move it to.

    Hi Cheryl,

    I just tried it & the photo was deleted. No option to move it appeared. I took your advice though & did it on a photo I had a duplicate of.

    Hi CM, if you go to the photo page of the photo you want to move you should see a box called 'Album' that you can click to view the list of all of your albums. Normally this box shows the photo's current album. If you select a different album from that list and then hit the 'Save Title, Description and Album For This Photo' button it will move the photo to that album.

    Let me know if this works for you :stew1:

    Hmmm.... let me go there and try.
    Ohhhh.... wait! Glad you tested first!
    The method I was thinking of was moving an entire "album".
    Try this...
    Click on the photo.
    It will take you to page where you can give details, or comment on it.
    There's a button that says "album" select the album you want to move it to.
    Again... better use a test photo, just in case! :D

    I'm going to delete my first post so no one makes the mistake of following those wrong directions.
