    Hi,
    I've just bought one of the greatest new devices of the decade - an iPhone :)- and I have the following problem: I've created 2 folders for photos in iTunes, but after syncing my iPhone I have 3 folders in my iPhone Photos, the two folders I created and a 3rd one containing all the photos from the other two folders - quite unnecessary and space consuming. Any idea where I went wrong? Cheers. AYST.

    Just a hunch, but I believe that is just an indexing feature rather than a separate copy of every photo.

    Could be, but its a "photo album" just like the other two. But its not called an "index" or "all your photos", so its puzzling. Thanks.

    Yep, I don't have a real answer for you sorry. All I know is that as far as I can recall it's been like that since day one and it wouldn't make much sense to force you to keep 2 copies of each pic.

    The folder "Photo Library" contains all the pictures that are there on iphone transfered from comp. But does anyone knows if that folder takes space? Cuz basically there are two copies of each pictures on iphones memory.

    i was puzzled at first then realized the "extra" folder is a collection of all pictures on your iPhone. I doubt its a second copy of all your pictures and takes away hard drive space. You should call apple just in case you have any doubts.
