I cannot believe how my windows 8 phone no longer feels like my phone, it feels like its Microsoft's phone that I am borrowing. I also have windows 8 on P.C and its just as horrid!
Do these people not understand we do not want everything shared and visible to anyone viewing our phone over our shoulder or when showing a picture to someone or when your kids want to play a game!
I have adult orientated photos of myself and my wife on my phone but these cannot be put in to a private hidden or locked folder, I have all my photos organised in folders on my SD card but my windows 8 phone disregards my folder and file layout and shows every one everything! I now cannot let anyone see my phone until I find the photo I want to show them so they do not see adult photos of my wife and myself. This is useless how it has been designed! Terrible!
I have, for such a long time, wanted to organise my pictures locally. I cannot understand the logic behind this feature being missing. SkyDrive is wonderful, but it is no replacement for local image organisation. I know I can do this when tethered to a PC but that is hardly a "mobile solution".
Really since 2012 and yet you,didn't,apply,it even in black update what a shame

I also want to make photo albums on my phone so I don't have to search every time for images of my holiday for example.
I have photos I don't want in the cloud, but I want on my phone. Also for people who do not have very good coverage in their area, having to do everything in the cloud is a disadvantage. Being able to mark some folders as hidden would also be nice.
I too agree I was totally shocked I wasn't able to this when I got my W8 phone - I was even thinking to return as I do use the camera a lot and to organize my photos on the spot! MS sort it out!!!!
Absoluteness control of your photos should allow you to do this without the need of the net/wi-fi. This function is piratically on every other phone and MS really need to wake-up and stop restricting people on the most basic smartphone functions.
It would be great to create SkyDrive and Facebook albums within the Pictures Hub, or even on-phone albums. However, it seems Windows wants you to use the cloud. I think there are only three on-phone albums for Windows Phone: Camera Roll, Saved Pictures, and Favorites. These three albums can be easily manipulated with the push-and-hold right-click options.
You can create and manipulate SkyDrive and Facebook albums within their own respective apps.
