Use a Great New Folders Feature in ios to Manage Large Photo Collections

If you find yourself constantly struggling to deal with very large collections of photos on iPhones and iPads…back in September 2018 Apple introduced a great new tool to help you (in ios 12)…Photo Folders.

The one little problem is that they didn’t bother to tell anyone about it! I just happened to accidentally discover it one day recently. To say that I was thrilled and amazed would be a very big understatement!

Example of photo Folders and photo albums.

How Can ios Photo Folders Help You?

Probably the best thing about folders is that you can use them to group several similar photo albums together. By doing this you significantly reduce the amount of time spent scrolling through photo albums searching for the correct one.

My Latest YouTube Video Demonstrates Some Ways to Utilize Photo Folders

My video is pretty rambling as I was just figuring out how they worked while I recorded it and there are several iterations of ways to implement them. If you want to skip over some of this and get into the heart of it…drag the video’s scrub bar to around the 6 minute mark.

About vsajewel

Hi...I'm the author of 2 main blogs on WordPress...vsatips...where I write tech tips for mobile devices...primarily ios...2nd is vsatrends...where I write less about tech things and more about everything else. I also host a YouTube channel which I use to better illustrate some of the 'how to's' in my posts. I love everything about technology. Currently, my main interests/platforms are ios, Windows and Amazon Echo. Recently I decided we were spending way too much money with our local cable provider. So I decided to cut the cord. There is a definite learning curve, especially the antennae part, but we successfully did that and are now saving a boatload of money, so I write some about that. I also am extremely conscientious about security because of an event my family endured , so I write a lot about that too. Two sub-categories of security I tend to focus on are the password manager Dashlane and Hardware Firewalls. Last, I take a lot of notes and have been a beta tester for Evernote for many years. I love Evernote! In recent years Apple has beefed up Apple Notes a lot...so it’s become a fairly serious note contender...as long as its OK if you lose or mess up all your Apple note data. I write about those 2 note platforms primarily.
