After installation and activation of the plugin do the following:

- Open Table 0 by clicking on the line with: Click on me!.

If you want a brief explanation, press the questionmark [ ? ] in the Help column. If you really do not know what to answer, just skip the question.
After selecting yes on setting #99, the page will be reloaded. There is no submit button, all changes are immediately processed.

You will enter the Album Admin page for the album you just created. You can change the name and description here. Leave the other fields ontouched for the moment. There is no submit button, the changes you make are 'auto-saved'. Near the bottom of the screen you see: Remark: Album 1 is not modified yet that will change into: Remark: Description of album 1 updated, etc.
- Go to the Photo Albums -> Upload Photos page and read the explanation in the yellow box.
Note that there are 3 ways to upload photos: selecting multiple at once (Box A), selecting multiple one by one (Box B) and zipfiles that contain one or more photo files (Box C).
Use Box A and upload more then one photo to the album you just created.
If there is only one photo in an album, it is assumed that the album is not ment to contain photos, but to contain child albums only. Therefor the photo will not be shown in the album, but will solely be used as a cover photo. You can change the minimum number of photos, so you can have changing coverphotos for such albums. For more info: see the Settings admin panel Table I-A4: Photocount treshold.
