Re: Help to transfer photos from main photo album

Gilbert Coville

I don’t have much experience with the photos section yet, but I don’t see a way to directly move photos from a main group to a subgroup. It also appears that there’s no good way for a member to download multiple photos at once. However, as owner, you can do an export of just the photos section of your main group. Go to Admin->Settings and choose the Export Group Data tab. You can choose to get an export of all the photos. will email you a link to a zip file containint all the photos.

The file extensions (.jpg, .png, etc.) seem to have been lost in my test. I don’t know if that was a Yahoo “feature” or some sort of data lost in the transfer process. You might need to add the file extensions back on after you receive the export zip file. Arrange all the photos as you wish, and then you can
upload multiple photos into new Albums that you create in your subgroup’s photo area.

Let us know how it goes.

Hi everyone

I have had my group from yahoo transferred so thank you very much for all your assistance in doing all that work for me.

I would like some steps or advice on how I can move some photos from this group’s main photo directory into a sub-group photo album.

Could you please offer some suggestions on how I should move these please.

Thank you
