Microsoft OneDrive now includes “Albums”. The new “album” is no longer synonymous with “folder”. What you get is essentially a collection of shortcuts pointing to photos and their actual location anywhere in the OneDrive.
A link can be generated for sharing the album. This works well if the photos in the album reside in public folders. That is harder to do now, the “public” sharing option is no longer available.
This post is really meant to test the album sharing and how it works with photos inside the album that are not publicly shared.
