The Dropbox for Android app has been updated to include the option to delete multiple photos at once, or group several photos stored in the Camera Uploads section into custom albums. The Photo Tab in Dropbox previously stored a single stream of images and grouped them according to date that they were uploaded to the service. The latest version of the app gives users the option to create more traditional photo albums that store images according to their preference.
Dropbox creates new albums by long-pressing on one photo and then tapping other images that will be added to the album. Tapping the Albums logo, a square with a '+' sign on top of it, then leads to another page where a user can create a name for the album, add more photos, or share a link to another app or Android service. The original images are not moved or restored, so they are still visible in the standard chronological view of the Camera Uploads. Albums is a way of organizing images according to tags and simplifying the process of sharing multiple images at once.
