    Is there a better way to do this than to do it on my PC and then sync back to my iPad? For example on my IPP I have probably 50 folders of photos and my camera roll and Facebook folder get bombarded with photos that I want to add to some of these current folders. However if I select some photos and attempt to move them I have to create a new folder and i don’t want to do that very often.

    Can i move photos from 1 folder to another on my ipad?

    What apps on your iPad and PC do you use? Do you use iCloud storage for your photos? To be honest I find working with file organisation on my Mac easier than on my iPad, but that may change with the drag and drop functionality that's coming with iOS 11

    I just use the photos app on my iPad and I’m on IOS 11 beta. I use OneDrive for cloud storage because of 100GB for free. I only have 5GB with iCloud. As far as my PC I just use file manager to copy/paste or in this case move photos from one folder to another and then sync the iPad again.

    Will that work or if I bump up my storage on iCloud can I do it on my iPad?

    You can add individual or multiple photos to existing albums in the Photos app on iOS. Find the photos you wish to move, click 'Select' and the tap the photos you wish to move. Finally click 'Add to' and select the Appropriate album.

    Not working for me. The only choice I have is New Album as all my others are grayed out and nothing happens when I tap them.

    Gayed out albums are typically the ones automatically created by Photos for specific catagories of photos: Bursts, panoramics, videos, etc. You can't add photos to these albums manually.

    Any album you create yourself should work fine.

    You can either create an ablum they way you said, by selecting photso and creating it, or by going to the Albums tab and tapping the + icon at the top left of the screen. Once an album has been created, you should be able to add new photos to it by selecting them, then using the Add To button at the top.

    I'm on the public beta of iOS 11, and this is how it works, pretty much the same way it did on iOS 10.

    Sorry so needy gents.... but 1 more thing. I turned on iCloud Photo and all my photos were removed from my iPad as photos are not controlled by iTunes sync any longer. So how do I get them back on my iPad?

    Might have just figured it out. I just drug my entire photos folder over to the upload icon under the iCloud Photos folder in windows explorer. It appears to be copying now so hopefully this will get it.

    Oh well this is over my head! I guess I’ll have to turn off the iCloud storage for my photos as I can’t figure out how to get them back on my iPad. This is probably an IOS 11 issue.
