    I was checking out the gallery, and checking out if my pics were there. (I'm assuming pics are still moving.)

    My question is...while checking out to see how to upload pics to my gallery, I clicked on "ADD MEDIA"
    That brings me to "add media to"....an album with the down pointing arrow. Clicking the screen brings up with Albums by pdxchickgirl111 (in the screenshot)

    Screenshot (121).png Screenshot (122).png Screenshot (120)edited.png

    Is that supposed to be there? Maybe it is?
    Clicking on the one pic by that person shows this.:confused:

    I saw that too just a while ago....
    ....must be they didn't set their add media access to 'owner only'.
    I looked for a way to change my album settings and couldn't find it(didn't look to hard tho) but do remember setting them when I created the album.

    I didn't go too far. I was afraid I may just make things worse. All my pictures aren't back yet...or at least I don't think so...lol.

    I thought I'd add a few pics...but I think I'll just wait until I'm sure it's ok to do so. Safer that way. ;)

    The only pics coming back into albums are pics that were already in albums before,
    the pics that were just uploaded into threads will stay in the threads....you'll have to load/add them in the albums if you want them there.

    Oh definitely. I had a bunch for my avatars that haven't shown up yet.
    That's what I was going to do was upload pics...I just want to make certain that the name in the screenshot's either supposed to be there...or I'll just wait until this it's corrected to load new pics. There's no rush.

    Hmmmm...she's added more pics to her gallery.

    Yeah, for sure.
    I suppose that that sharing editing access to a a gallery or article would be handy for a collaboration...but most the time, not.

    It's likely just something small that may need to be tweaked. :confused:

    Privacy setting on albums already created can be changed:
    Click Gallery>My Albums>Select album check box>other action>change privacy settings:
    upload_2017-6-2_8-53-17.png

    another pop up will appear with a couple settings that can be changed:
