Comments

Create Photo Album will also be handy for specific photography workflows, letting Shortcuts users create new albums from specified photos immediately ā€“ I can see using this with Get Last Import to create albums for specific photo sessions or memories from a trip in one go.
Create Photo Album has a lot of potential for creativity; the only limitation now is that you can set an album to appear inside a Folder, which could be nice for nested setups ā€“ I have a set of Wallpapers albums in a folder with different albums for iPhone, iPad, and Mac sizing; Iā€™d love to be able to share that setup with a one-tap shortcut.
