My Photos: Click "choose an album" to filter by albums

    I can remember being able to click on "my photos" and then clicking again on a topical group of photos I had saved so that I can pull them up to use in articles.  Can't do that anymore.  What's going on?

      I have to admit that I'm not sure how this is supposed to work, but the wording certainly makes it sound like you should be able to filter "My Photos" by an album. I checked my account, and even with defined albums, they are not listed in the "all sources" drop down.

      I have shared this with our engineering team.
      Can you confirm that you did see the albums listed in the drop-down before?

        The all sources drop down appears to be new. At least I don't remember seeing it before.  But I was able to click on "choose an album" and find the images I put into different albums, like I have been able to in the past.

        Yes, you could see them, but you could not sort your photos in any given album.  For example, if I am writing an article about children, I used to be able to go to "my photos" and then choose "children" and then from there link a photo to my article.  Now I can only pull up the most recent photos and that's all.  I can see the photos when I go into "photos", but there is no way to sort them into albums.  I suggested doing this a few years ago, but the team did not want to do it at that time.  This is a real problem for people who want to reuse and/or edit photos they saved.  Now the feature is worse than ever.

      So the part that says "choose an album" is actually where you select the album. You can click that text and will see a list of your albums.

      I think this is confusing as the way it looks I would never have thought that it was something that I could click.
      I have requested a feature to make it more obvious that "choose an album" is clickable.

        choose an album was never clickable!  I'll have to try it, but I'm not sure that feature works.  Maybe your team changed this at some point.

          It's working now...I just checked...so I must have been doing something wrong.  Thanks for taking a look at this.

    If you are talking about albums for photos, I just went and looked and I'm both still seeing that feature and able to use it. 

    Can you better describe what's not working on your end?
