How do I use photo albums on my Android device?

« Back to Help Center

Albums make it easy to organize and share a bunch of photos and videos. For example, create an album with all the photos from your holiday party, then share it with friends and family—even if they don't have a Dropbox account.

Android Add photos to an album

  1. Go to the Photos tab by tapping the picture icon in the top toolbar.
  2. Select the Camera Uploads view at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap the checkmark icon in the top toolbar, or long press on a photo.

  4. Select photos and videos and tap the add to album icon. You can create a new album or add to an existing album.

Android Share an album

Once you've added photos to an album, you can easily share it with a couple taps.

  1. Find and open the album you want to share.
  2. Tap Share Album at the bottom of the screen.

  3. Select the way you'd like to share (such as email, text message, or social network) and fill in information as needed. Your recipients will get a link to view the album.

Share a bunch of photos without creating an album

  1. Go to the Photos tab by tapping the picture icon in the top toolbar.
  2. Select the Camera Uploads view at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap the checkmark icon in the top toolbar, or long press on a photo.

  4. Select the photos you want to share.
  5. Tap the share icon in the top toolbar.

  6. Select the way you'd like to share (such as email, text message, or social network), and fill in information as needed.

Android Manage your albums

  • Rename an album: Simply open the album and tap on its name.

  • Remove photos from an album: Open the album and long press the first item you want to remove. Select any others, then tap the remove icon in the top toolbar. Note that removing photos from an album will not delete them from your account.
  • Delete an album: Open the album and tap the menu icon in the top toolbar (or press the menu button on your phone). Then tap Delete Album. Note that deleting an album will not delete its photos–they'll remain intact in your account.
