Create album

To keep track of the gallery app on the Huawei smartphone and provide quick access to photos, we can create different albums and move the photos we want into them. We can name the photo album as we like, for example, to keep the photos from our last vacation together and separate from the others. After creating an album, we can add photos directly, and we are asked if photos should be copied or moved into this album.
