    right now, it's the equivalent of a shoebox for my digital photos. if i'd ever bother to put keywords with my photos, it'd really be handy.

    you can also make slideshows, crop and e-mail a bunch of photos automagically and some other cool stuff.

    when you plug in a digital camera, it fires up the program and asks if you want to import the photos.

    that's what feature requests are for. :)

    though it might not work as well with apple, there are several apps that i use or have used in the past that i submitted feature requests for things like this and the vast majority of them were added to the apps in as little as one day to as much as four months (bigger company, fewer updates).

    Oh snap. I guess not. I never keep photos in iPhoto folders, so I guess I never needed a subfolder. That's stupid that iPhoto won't recognize folders created in finder. :rolleyes:

    so you've made an album you want a sub folder within the album or do you just wnat more albums.

    Albums are sub folders of the library images.

    Nope, no subfolders. I can see a use of why other people might want them- but as for me; I don't really need them at all.

    Got it. Create a new folder then just drag folders from the source list and it will make it a subfolder
