Dropbox Photo Albums Are Now Ready for Mass Deployment

Earlier this year, Dropbox announced the ability to easily share photos as albums versus creating links to and sharing individual folders and photos. Only a select group of testers were able to try out the new functionality. According to Pocket-lint, Dropbox is now ready roll out the functionality to all users.
Simply put, clicking the "photos" button in the upper-left of portion of your Dropbox account online, will enable you to view and organize all the photos saved to your account, no matter where they're physically located. Dragging and dropping your photos into albums will not change their physical location, it just creates a "placeholder" that you can share without messing with your current folder structure.
I checked (and checked, and checked) my Dropbox account, and the feature isn't there yet, so it's safe to assume that Dropbox is rolling the feature out gradually. Even still, this is good news for neat-freaks like me who have a very tight cloud folder structure. The ability to create photo albums without moving multiple images into public folders will be a welcomed addition.
