One of the most amazing perks of owning an iPhone is the ability to click great, life-like photos. Whether you are traveling/holidaying, chilling with friends, enjoying a sunset, or cooking something new, an iPhone can encase your memories to be cherished forever.
While clicking and saving your memories is relatively easy, finding that image in a hoard of others is difficult.

Thankfully, it is quite simple to add photos to an album on iPhone.
Moreover, Apple has been making the Photos app better by the day, ensuring that we can manage our photos and albums quite easily. It can not just edit, sort, rename, crop, or resize a photo or video; you can even hide pictures from your camera roll.
