Most iPhone users may ever face such a condition: when they want to transfer some pictures from Camera Roll to a new-created album, the former pictures still exist on the Camera Roll. If you don’t want to have duplicated photos on your Camera Roll & Album. Here I want to show you two commonly used methods to complete the task: the first one is do the transfer manually and the second one is turning to a third party tool for help.
When turning to the first solution for help, you can transfer photos from Camera Roll to Album on your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch totally for free without a third party tool. However, once you delete photos in the Camera Roll, the photos you transferred to the album will also be deleted at the same time. If you want to complete the transfer more easily and make no effect on photos in album, please turn to the solution 2 and find a professional third party tool for help. Here I will introduce you the ever best transfer tool for you and detailed steps to complete the task.
