    My dad just did the "switch" from a clunky HP to iMac and has run into some frustration with iPhoto.

    On his PC, he'd organized all of his pictures into folders, sorted by events, dates, trips, etc.

    When he brought the pictures into iPhoto, he's of course seeing them in one continuous stream, sorted by date.

    Is there any way he can easily bring his "folder" organization over into iPhoto? IE: Some easy way to make each physical folder on the hard drive show up in iPhoto as an event or iPhoto folder?

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :)

    From my experience, photos dropped into iPhoto that were in folders will retain that structure as Events, although it doesn't work with subfolders. Beyond that, I'm not 100% sure.
