Windows - Offline creator tool
All folders in the Windows File Explorer are automatically connected to our creator tool.
When you add an external device to your computer while the albelli creator tool is running, you can simply refresh the photo view. You can do this in our creator tool by navigating to "Fotos" (left-hand column).
Mac - Offline creator tool
Adding a picture folder: Click on the "+" button at the left side of our program. It is also possible to drag a folder to our editor.
Removing a picture folder: Select a folder and click on the "-" sign at the left side of our program.
Switching between photo libraries
Please follow the steps below to change the photo sources:
1. Click on "albelli" in the upper left corner.
2. Click on "Preferences".
3. A pop-up window will appear. You can then change the photo sources there.
Unable to add a photo folder?
The first and most easy solution can be a restart of the Mac.
If the system asks for a password to access the keychain right after restarting, then the keychain is corrupted. We recommend contacting your local Apple Support to do this for you. It’s not easy to do, and it might interact badly with various other scenarios, most notably iCloud Keychain.
Alternative: You can always drag the photos from the external photo folder to the desired place in the photo book.

Note: As of 1 July 2020, Google Photos is no longer available in the app.
Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to connect other sources to our app.
