I like to upload photos from my phone in batches of ~40 photos. To do this, I’ll select the photos I want to upload in a batch and add them to my “Holding” album. This helps me have fewer photos to keep track of, and means I don’t have to scroll through the entirety of my recents album to reach the ones I want to select. This is especially important when I have a large backlog (currently about 4000 photos of it…), which means both a lot of scrolling and a high chance of accidentally passing up a photo I meant to upload.
When I go to upload photos, the iNat app always (reasonably) defaults to the recents album. I then, every time I select photos, have to switch albums and select them from my “holding” album. My request is to have an option in the settings that allows us to select a default album to show first when choosing to upload photos from the camera roll.
I have an iPhone, and I’m not totally sure how this works for the android app. I would guess it’s pretty similar, but someone please correct me if I’m wrong
