Wix Photo Albums: Updating Your Old Albums to the New Templates

The new Photo Albums templates allow for more design and customization options. If you have any albums built with the old templates (prior to December 2019) you can update to the newest version in order to edit and manage them.
When you update your old album, a duplicate version that uses the new templates is created automatically. You can then edit and customize the new version to use all the new template features. 
Any albums created before December 2019 will still work as expected but they cannot be edited or updated.
