Re: how to organize pictures

You'll need a file manager to do that. There are a few in App World, including our popular Files & Folders, which also has a handy thumbnail feature and slideshow built-in. Plus many other features, see below.

 

One thing that may seem odd is that the albums sometimes don't appear in the standard Pictures app immediately. This is because the Pictures app needs to downsize your photos to thumbnail size, and it does that in the background. For an album (folder) containing a lot of large photos it may take a while.

Re: how to organize pictures

I use both files and folders, as well as create the folders thru windows explorer.

That's weird the program should have asked you the first time it was launched.

Re: how to organize pictures

files and folders did ask but the first app i tried, file manager didn't.
thats when i came to the forum for help. thanks to Innovatology and aandras for advising to use files and folders.

to all the people on this forum helping other playbook users get the most out of their tablets, thank you.

sad to see so much bitching about the playbook on the forum. i too at times feel bummed that the playbook doesn't work as well as i would like. my 9530 curve works better and is easier to use than my playbook. hopefully the new update will bring the playbook up to par.

I recommend you to try the Duplicate Photo Finder by MindGems. It supports more than 400 image formats including 300 RAW.
