There are 2 different ways to add a photo/video to a collection through the app, you can do so as you upload the post, or you can go back at a later date and add it in to the collection.

As you upload

Deleting a Collection, and what happens to the photos when you do

Tap the menu button, then select Collections. On the Collections screen click the Edit button, then tap the cross in the top left corner of whichever collection you want to delete, you will need to confirm this action in a pop up on the screen. Finally tap Done to complete the process.
