IMO, the second is the easiest to manage for all of us.
No I was referring to how the members screen names are haphazardly arranged in the album section not the pictures themselves but I understand your point Claude.
Overall I don't have an issue with finding your album(s) because all I need is your screen name. On a bad side, a big album with hundreds of pictures has always been a problem on the site. I have a picture of Badwater at Death Valley...even hard for me to find it.
Being we can make multiple specific albums now, I think finding pics arranged in dates or places will make it easier for people to navigate through. For instance you could break up your trip into states or places instead of one album labeled "seeing the USA" or 2014. If I made an album titled 2009 Death Valley trip
it would be a bit easier to track down a picture for me and makes it better for somebody interested is Death Valley. However I thought by moving the pics out of your old album would sever the link in your old trip report & if you restructured your old album, your trip report might end up with lots of text & no pictures. Perhaps I read that incorrectly but I don't really want to mess with any of my pictures until this is all straightened out. The whole picture fiasco could be a series of different problems and that is something I'll let the pros deal with. Archives are probably the most important aspect of this site and I hope this doesn't get lost in the move.
I would like members to keep reporting picture issues.
