Photo galleries are for when you want to display a group of thumbnail images on a page.  Photo albums are one step up.  Use albums for using one image to represent a group of images, when the user clicks on that representative image they will be taken to gallery page with the group of thumbnails for the photos in that gallery.  You can have more than one gallery in an album, each gallery will be represented by a thumbnail.
