5. Enter the description of the album.

6. Begin typing the name of the album. The textbox will use autocomplete to enter the name of the folder where your images are. Unfortunately, the autocomplete plugin is case-sensitive. Choose the name when you see it.

8. The settings should all be self-explanatory, thanks to their inline help text. These settings will be unique to each album. Therefore, each album you add could potentially have a completely different behavior.

9. Click Update to add the album. It should appear immediately.
