With the Story Album, you can create a digital album for every occasion. Galaxy S4 can organize your photos and create albums based on specific events or customize them the way you want.
You can even apply themes and choose various layouts. Then print the photos and hold the memories in your hand.
Album can be created automatically using tag information. Alternatively, you can manually select individual photos to be included in the album.
When you take photos at one location, the device automatically sorts your photos into albums based on your specified criteria and suggests making the new albums. To achieve this, tap menu button, go to Settings-Home city, and then set a method for recognizing your location. Select an album type and set a minimum number of photos. When you take photos that meet the criteria you set, the device will suggest making an album.
Once the album is created, you can edit it by adding or removing some photos, change the cover photo, modify the layout, and send it to a Samsung printer to print. Of course, you can share and export the album to other devices.
The following video illustrates this feature.
