Create image libraries

When creating an album, you must perform the following steps:

  1. Check whether the album already exists.

    Before you create the album, you must check whether an album with the same ID already exists.

  2. Create the album.

    If the album does not exist, you create a new album with the specified ID.

  3. Set the required properties.

    When creating a new album, it is recommended to set at least the following properties:

    • Title
    • LastModified
    • DateCreated
    • UrlName

    You can also set any other properties in this step.

  4. Save the album.

    Save all changes that you have made to the album.

The example below shows you how to create an album with predefined ID.
