I would like know how I can easily acquire my GP album names (the text). With a list of album names I could sort and arrange them such that I could produce my own album structure. I have many many albums and would like to view them in a structure built by me. It would be better to have my own album structure within GP but this offline one would be a ‘second best’. Yes…as new albums are added I would have thru the building process again. It would also be  good to be able to print out the albums on paper.

Thanks,

Bill Hoyland

hmmmm – that would be nice wouldn’t it? Just to see a list of all my albums’ titles, in order. Unfortunately, that doesn’t exist.

You can put the album view into alphanumeric sort order, using the up/down arrow icon at the top right of the albums. But that view always shows a square with the album cover photo as well as the name. They toyed with the idea of giving us an album list view (see https://blog.google/products/p…..-cleaning/) but I never saw it implemented.

I make my own list of important albums, but I don’t think this is what you need – see this video: 469. GP-Make a link list of photo albums

All I can say right now is to leave feedback for a feature request. The more people who ask, the more likely they do it.

Agreed – Send Feedback!

In case you’ve never done that …

Using photos.google.com on web, click the ? button in top right for Help, scroll to the bottom and click on Send Feedback. Then say something like

Feature Request: Please give us a way to see a simple alphabetical listing of Albums. I have hundreds of albums and it’s impossible to scroll thru them all. With a listing I could find what I’m looking for.
