Nowadays, more and more people prefer to take pictures with their mobile phones, which are faster and more convenient than cameras. However, the memory of a mobile phone is limited, and there are many other data that need to occupy space besides photos, such as apps and files. Those are essential, so when we run out of memory on our phones our first instinct is to delete unnecessary photos.

With today's enhanced mobile phone photography technology, the higher the quality of the photos, the more memory they take up, so it's a necessary thing to organize your phone pictures regularly. In this article, we will introduce how to organize photos mainly for iPhone users.

Solution 1. Managing pictures directly on the iPhone

Most iPhone users will generally choose to manage their photos directly on their phone, which does make it easier in some ways. But the process can be much more complicated, and you'll need to keep browsing through a lot of photos to pick out the best quality ones. Then you hesitate among the similar photos and don't know which one to discard. In the end, you may still end up retaining a large number of pictures that continue to occupy your phone's storage space.

It's really good to manage directly on your iPhone if you don't have many photos.

1. Create iPhone Albums

Launch your Photos app > Tap the plus sign“+”icon on the top left side of the screen > Enter a name for your new album and click “Save.”> Your phone will ask you to move photos to the album > Select a photo, just click on it > After you’ve chosen all the photos you want for your new album, tap ‘Done.’

2. Sort iPhone Photos

Go to your Camera Roll and Click “Select”> Choose the photos you want to add to your album > Click “Add to Album” on the bottom of the screen > Select the album you want to send your photos to.

3. Deleting Albums

Launch the “Photos”  > Click “Edit” on the top right side of the screen > Tap the red minus sign “-” icon next to the album you want to delete > Click the red “Delete Album” button.
