Create A Photo Album

How do I use albums?

As a member, you can create Albums of images that are linked to your public profile. Albums can be created by visiting the User Album Control Panel, and clicking on the 'Create a New Album' link.

Each album can have a title ('Joe's Holiday to Nepal'), a description ('A bunch of photos from my recent adventure') and can be either Public or Private.

  • Public albums can be viewed by anyone
  • Private albums can only be viewed by site staff (moderators, administrators) and your Friends and Contacts (info)
