   I watched you last Video 100 times and couldn’t figure out how to make a MAP.

Here is what I found.

If you look at the attached picture you will see two pictures. In MY shared album there is NO Edit album feature.

It took me awhile to figure this out.

If an album is shared you will not have the ” Edit Feature “

The ” Edit Album Feature” is present in an unshared album.

Does this make sense?????

I can’t upload the picture so sent it to your email

Yes, you got it. You can only edit an album that you created.  If you created the album, you certainly should have the Edit album button even if you have shared it. For example, my australia/NZ album has the Edit album button.

..I see the image in my email – are you sure you created the album on the left? I notice the “Leave Album” option – that only appears when you have joined someone else’s album.

For images in this forum, you need to use the “Upload Attachments” button below the post.
