How do you use it for albums?
How to change the way your albums look on imgur
You’ll be able to change the layout of your albums by going into the settings tab in your profile area. Here, you can adjust various elements on the page. If you click the box for ‘Albums’, an option will appear, letting you toggle between viewing your albums in a list or a grid view. You can also select the amount of images in each row and the size of the grid boxes. Underneath that, you’ll see the ‘Album link’, which can be changed to give your collection a personal touch (you might want to choose something that adds personality or makes people curious). You can change this setting as often as you like.
Any images you uploaded in a series will be listed as part of that series by default. You can change whether this is the case for new albums by selecting ‘Show first image’ and choosing an option from the dropdown menu.
If instead you’d prefer not to show each individual image, simply click ‘Hide images’ below the box for ‘Albums’. Here you’ll see four options: if you select ‘First image’, your albums will not include that one first image. If you pick ‘All images’, both the first and all other images will be hidden. To view just the album titles, click ‘Titles only’. If you select ‘None’, no album images will be shown.
The different layouts you can choose from when changing your album style
You can choose from 6 different layouts, shown in the picture below. Each layout has its own purpose, for example, if you have a larger gallery, you might want to go with ‘Photo Grid’. ‘Photo Grid’ will display your pictures in a grid of small, medium or large boxes, depending on what you choose. This is the best option if you want to represent your images accurately and show them off. The next two layouts, ‘Boxed Grid’ and ‘Simple Grid’, are similar to each other but are slightly different in their design. Both of these layouts allow you to choose from large ‘block’ style photos, with a single photo in each box, or small ‘square’ style pictures, with a single photo in the corners. The last two layouts are ‘Photo Padding’ and ‘Photo Padding Box’. Both of these layouts offer padding between the photos and the borders. This will help your images stay square and uniform and look nice on any screen size.

Examples of how each layout looks when used on an album
The ‘Simple Grid’ layout is an example of how a small, medium and large image box looks like on the same album. This is a good option if you want to showcase multiple photos of different sizes in one album. The ‘Boxed Grid’ layout has no space between the images, so your pictures will be very close to each other. This layout is the best option if you want to show a lot of photos and catch your audience’s attention by using headers, text or descriptions. The ‘Photo Stream’ layout shows every image separately from each other, with no space in between them. This is a good option if you want to show many images of different sizes, arrangements of photos on one album and/or if you want to catch your audience’s attention with a lot of text and descriptions. The ‘Staggered Grid’ layout only works with square images. This is an example how a small, medium and large image looks like on the same album. The ‘Masonry Grid’ layout is an example of how to display multiple images in columns. This layout is good if you want to showcase multiple photos on your profile without using much space. The ‘Title Only’ layout is an example of how a profile photo and title can be displayed without any distractions.

Which layout is best for you and why
If you want to create a nice presentation, you could use the ‘Simple Grid’ layout. It would be best if your photos were close in size, so they appear similar in the grid of photos. If you are adding text and headers to your album (which is a good idea), use the ‘Photo Stream’ layout. This layout will still show your photos but you can add text above and below them, which may turn out better if you have a lot of content. All in all, the best layout for your album depends on the occasion and what you want to show off.
The third, and final, layout is the ‘Cover Flow’. This one is if you want your photos to be shown in a larger size, with a bigger image. If you have some nice images and want them to be shown in the best way possible then this is the layout for you. A reason why I don’t like this layout as much is because it doesn’t show text that well and can make hard to see what photos are there. Overall, this layout also depends on what you are trying to show off, if it is just the photos or with text.
