To add an album go to your profile
Click on pictures and Albums in the left side menu
Then look under the list of your existing albums for the link to add an album
You can link that new album to any existing category when you set it up, just follow the prompts.
Thank you Janet. I know how to create an album and I know how to add a picture to an album I've created. And I know how to link an album to a category.
So, the only way to link one picture to a category album is to create a new album, put that picture into the album, and then link the album to the category album. Wow, that's a lot of work for one picture, and seems like a lot of unnecessary albums are being created. Seems that every member who wants to post photos would need several (7-8) albums per member (one for each category album) with each one linked to one of the category albums. Why can't the site be changed to allow pictures to be uploaded into the various category albums directly?
I belong to several forums, cooking and photography, and they also have category albums but they allow uploading a picture directly into the category album. That way the member might only have one album as a sort of repository but can have the option of just uploading a pic directly to a category album.
Food (pun intended) for thought.
Thanks for the clarification on how to get a pic into a category album.
