    I have a moto E5 play. I take pictures with it. In my advancing years many of the pictures are of unattractive parts of my body which I store for showing doctors, chiropodists etc, or document healing of scars. Wgafa? if it was porn it wouldn’t be any different.

    On a moto G you can create albums to store embarrassing pictures in. How do you do it on a moto E?

    I can create an album in DCIM with a file manager, but it doesn’t show in the Google photos app. I even just did this to put a bunch of medical photos in the phone before an appointment just now. I created an album: medical. In the file manager programme it is there, but in the phot app they are scattered all among the photos according to date.

    The albums in the photo app are Camera, Whatsapp, Whatsapp vidoes, Downloads and Screenshots.

    But in the file manager under images is the medical album I created too. Why doesn’t it show in “photos”?

    I could manage by not using the google app and only viewing photos through the files app, but I still can't make new albums from the phone, and what is the Google phot app there for if it doesn't have this function?

    don't use the file manager to create an album. you should be able to do it directly within google photos. and it should be able to then see it in a file manager. i have millions of albums that i created with the google photo app. and its the best place to do the albums as this will get stored on the cloud and you can access the albums any where....on a different device, on your web browser, and even on your pc. it truly is the best app for photos IMHO.

    My question was How? and you didn't address it, but I gave you a like for answering, and while I was composing a reply to you I found that I can do it in photos after all, somehow I missed it first try, thanks!
    It's all very strange, there is no mention of creating albums in the Moto E user guide either
