Create and manage photo albums in mobile Lightroom CC and sync them with Lightroom on your desktop and the web.

1. Get organized with albums

Albums are a useful way to organize your photo library in Lightroom CC. Any photos you import into Lightroom can be added to an album. A photo can be in more than one album.

2. Create an album

Open Lightroom on your mobile device and sign in. Tap plus (+). Then tap Create Album. Name the album and tap OK.

Note: The screenshots in this tutorial show Lightroom on an iPhone. The user interface may vary between iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
