Default [Q] Is there a way to install a previous Gallery version?

Im now on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with CM 11 and theres no option to add an album in the Gallery app... is there an option do download a previous version of the gallery with the option to add albums?
Thank you

There are some free gallery apps on the Play Store which will save you the hassle. Otherwise you would have to find the appropriate gallery .apk that can run on your rom and by using root explorer replace the one already there and then set permissions. Make sure you have searched this fully, this sort of question may already be answered and an extracted file of the old gallery may already be available, also make sure the previous version has that option or this will be pointless :P

I looked around and couldnt find anything myself. Its possible to extract it from the files of an older version whose gallery you want but i cant help you there sorry . Also i never needed the album option, so you can try a couple of apps of the play store or post in the original rom's thread as a request and there the devs could help you

Drop the gallery app to system/apps in place of the gallery app you have .

You are on non Samsung firmware so presume GApps should have gallery .
