I looked around and didn't see this question anywhere- apologies if it's already been answered.
I'm pretty new here, and just jumped into the water and started splashing around. I use a lot of my own photos in the Hubs, and the situation is starting to get very messy.
Finding out that they can be sorted into albums sounds like a lifesaver, but what about the photos already uploaded? Will those addresses be automatically updated or have to be manually changed?
If you go to My Account-->Photos, you will see all of the photos you have uploaded. If you hover over each, you will see where you can put each in a photo album and write a description as well as delete,use as your profile or use in a new hub. This won't change anything on the hubs you already have, it just groups them for you.
I honestly haven't found any benefit to grouping them into albums, personally. I've done it to all of my photos and it doesn't let me search for an album. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. But anyhow, it shouldn't affect anything if you group them into albums.
Thanks, I went ahead and gave it a shot, and you're right- it doesn't help much. I was thinking that when choosing photos to put in hubs you could choose which album to select them from...nope.
There are a couple of graphics that I'm using repeatedly, and it would have been nice to be able to pull them up quickly.
Thanks for the reply, regardless!
Unless HP has made a change I am unaware of...if you use a picture repeatedly, you can only use one size! If you change the size in any hub from photo album, it will change ALL pictures across all hubs where this image was used.
This is why I upload the picture every time I use it, whether 1,2,or even more times.
Oh! I'm glad you mentioned that! I've not changed any of the sizes of mine but it's good to know what could happen if I do Thanks for sharing this!
Good to know, Michael, thank you! The ones I've done so far haven't needed to be resized, I was just trying not to clutter up the photo file...don't ask me why. Perhaps it's just my OCD acting up, but it sounds like it's going to be safer to just redo them.

Hi all,Just a few questions about the photo library we all have on Hubpages.1. I like to use line dividers in my hubs. In order to insert the line divider I use, I need to scroll past two years worth of photos to reach it. Is there a quicker way to access the photos you need? (Apart from scrolling...

Do you feel the art of collecting actual photographs in photo albums has become a thing of the past?

Each time I go to My Photos in the My Accounts Section, there seems to be a glitch. Also each time I attempt to access My Photos in Upload Pictures, it doesn't respond. Does anyone else have this problem? I have recently updated to Internet Explorer 11.

Hi--I want to reorganize my photos in my HubPages albums and since only a few of the albums pop up when I want to use them, I'd like to delete some and rename others. Unfortunately, I can't find any information on how to do that. Does anyone have some help? I end up uploading the...

Some time ago I've organized my photos and put them all in specific albums related to their hubs. So when I have to change a photo in a hub I upload the photo in that particular album. Just now I saw that the edit lay out has changed (looks good) but when I wanted to choose an album the site...

There is a new heading on the my account page called photos. It has all the photos I have used in all my hubs, and since I have used some more than once, they appear more than once. I was considering deleting the extras but then feared that they may disappear from the hubs in which they were used....
