There are 2 photo albums to fill, Animals and Hidden Coins. To view these albums, pause the game and go to Albums.

The Animals photo album consists of a photo of every animal and their colour variant. Mini Exhibit animals don't have a colour variant as they don't have babies (in the game).

To get a colour variant, make sure that the animals requirements are all full, as each species have their own social requirements, food, toys and exhibit. To speed up the process and increase the likelihood of the offspring being a colour variant, I'd recommend having 2 sets of male/female so they can reproduce faster. Make sure it's a medium or large exhibit so that there's space for the offspring. Also research Animal Breeding which can be found at the Main Gate under the Research tab, this will increase chance of animal breeding and skin variant babies both by 50%. I used a guide made by evilknight23 which is located here:

The guide helps you mark which animals you've took a picture of and ones you haven't with-out having to go in and out of the photo album all the time.

As for the Hidden Coins (25 in total), they're very easy to find using these video guides. They were not made by me, credit goes to The Xbox Hub on YouTube. If you have difficulty seeing a coin, try moving the exhibit so that the sun reflects off of the coin.
