Hi Markus ,
From UX perspective it is always better to have simple and light interface with minimum distracting elements.
At this screen the focus is on creating an album, and specifying additional properties is only optional.
Very often this step will be skipped and we don't want to overload the user with this information.
One idea we discussed internally is to add an option for users set their own preferences whether such fields to be expanded by default or not. This was added to our backlog (ID 101917)

Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans?
Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed?
