I have enabled the ability to create personal albums here. These albums have the ability to be personal, shared with specific users and open to the public to view. You can also use the albums and then in any mosts link to them by using the Gallery embed option in the editor (but permissions do get applied on who can see them according to what you have set). You can either upload actual images or link to personal YouTube videos that you don't want the public to have access to, but may want to share with either all users on this forum or specific users on the forum.

The first step to creating a personal album is to go to the Gallery page.
Once there, you look at the Navigation tab on the left (when on desktop)

You will see the option Your Albums. Select this option and you will be shown a screen similar to this (mine already has albums but you will only see the Add Media button most likely.

You will want to choose the Create personal album to make any personal albums (you can have multiple) that is outlined in yellow.
To add to an existing album you choose the option outlined in blue.

When you choose Create personal album you will be presented with this screen

Here is where you can either upload a supported file type or embed media (like a YouTube video). You will have to give an album title.
The Can view media items is where you can set one of the restrictions to the listed options.
If you choose Specific members you will get assistance with names listing as you type the user names

You can click on the user name that pops up and it will enter it into the field and if you have additional members you want to share with you can then start typing in their name and it will also populate user similar member names and you can then click on the correct member name.

Once you have completed the settings you want, simply click on the Save button and it will upload the media into your album.
