To do so, users can tap and drag pictures from their camera roll or via the app to lay out their photoset. Pictures then need to be uploaded to a Tumblr blog or Photoset.com to share with others. The standalone website allows anyone to create a photoset, even if you're not a Tumblr user.

"Photosets have been one of our favorite additions to Tumblr," the company said on its official blog. "You’ve surprised us a thousand times over with your creativity. It’s hard to imagine Tumblr without photos, and we love the power a set of photos has to tell a story."
