When you're uploading pictures to a newly-created album, you must avoid (for now, of course) using special characters in the name.
The characters are: &, <, >, ' (apostrophe/single quote), " (doublequote).
If you use any of these characters in your album title, the photos may appear to upload, but will fail silently. No album will be created.
Workaround: avoid using the characters. (lame, I know).
This will be addressed before Final.
