Click the Media tab of your BuddyPress profile, and then click Albums tab to view the Album Gallery.

The Album Gallery lists all the albums that you have created.

On another user's profile, the albums will be visible as per the privacy setting with which they were created:

  • public

If you use BuddyPress groups, the same media/album functions will be available there as well.
