Albums for Media Library Merged

As a photographer, I would LOVE to see albums in the media library - so I can upload a bunch of images all with the same tags/info/hashtags without having to edit the info for each image separately.  Or even the ability to bulk edit tags, info, hashtags, people to tag would be great.

    100% agree with this. I like the Media view when viewing things I uploaded today or this week. But being able to group by week, month, day, range or "album" would be pretty sweet. All of these are already available in many photo editing programs. Having it here would be very useful. I usually upload photos from one specific shoot. Some will be distributed in a multi-image post to IG, other's will be shared later. Since the content is just about the same for all these grouped photos, being able to mass edit just about everything would be great. Upon upload of a new set, I would edit everything at once. This ensures that no matter if I share a group of photos tomorrow or an individual photo from the group in 2 months, I still have the same content/context/tags in all the photos from that group without having to hunt that text down.

    Roger, using labels can be tough. When I first started I started labeling everything... from "Woods" to "South Jersey" to year-month-date (like 2018-08-24). I found that once I had over 35 or so labels, it became hard to use, too cluttered within the app. A simple example of that is the ordering... why are the labels not in alpha order. "County-Monmouth" should be just above "County-Ocean"... but that is not the case. In a short time, I stopped labeling with such specificity. Kinda sucks since I do see it would be useful to find a "bird" in "spring" at the "beach". Anyway... within my above example, uploading 25 sets of grouped photos this year will give me 25 more labels to clutter my installation. And what happens next year when I have another 25?

     

    Plus 1 fro mass edit and plus 1 for "albums".

    Would love to see this too. Later's current setup for managing images in the media library is a bit clunky and time consuming. I'd also love to be able to use albums to plan my upcoming month without having to drag a whole month into the preview.

    Hi Krista - we currently have the ability bulk-select and add Labels, which you can use to create groupings of photos/videos.

    However, the idea of bulk-editing captions, hashtags, etc is intriguing, but difficult!

    Would being able to add the same "Media Notes" to a bunch of photos be useful?
