    Hi Heros

    ok so in Albums (photos) we have the standard set of photo albums:

    Camera Shots
    All Photos
    All Videos
    Downloads.

    How do I add a new album? For example how would I add "Holiday photos album" or "TV show Videos" to the list.

    I can't find a way of doing it.

    I just used ASTRO File Manager (very good app, btw) to create a new folder on the SD card. The Albums application just detected that extra folder and added it to the list of viewable albums. Of course, I added photos to it, also.

    Hey Joe

    i tried that too but the phone didn't pick up the new album.

    I placed the new folder with photos in it in the DCIM folder.. is that the correct way of doing it?

    I put all of my personalized photo folders outside of the DCIM folder. So I created a folder called My Photos and it exists on the same "level" as the DCIM folder.

    It then just appeared in the Albums list.
