Albums? Photos? Memories? What are all of these terms, anyway?

We use some specific terms to refer to various concepts in weGather. Here’s what we mean when we say “photos,” “albums,” and “memories.”


Photos are specific images you add to weGather. Photos can be grouped into Albums by theme, and photos can be in multiple albums.


Albums are groups of photos. Albums can be shared, which gives family members who are subscribed to the album access to all of the photos in that album.


Memories are the comments that you add to your photos. Together, your comments tell the story behind the photo and help you remember to remember. (We nerds — cool nerds, that is — call “memories” metadata…)
