I'm absolutely baffled.... I used migration assistant to transfer all my media from my old pc ( which all worked great btw). But cannot get my head round iPhoto and the 'pictures' folder. The first time I opened iPhoto it imported all my 7000 photos and put them all into photo stream too. Anyway found out how to turn that off. So now, I have all my photos on iPhoto, which is great. However, I'm guessing these have all been imported from the pictures folder? Soooo, my question is - why do my sub folders in 'pictures' show up as individual folders in iPhoto? Eg- I have a folder for all photos of my son, and then sub folders from when he was born, christening, first Xmas etc... But they are all in iPhoto as a folder each. Do I have to put them all into albums again? Also, is iPhoto my first port of call when I want to import some photos from say, an sd card or do I save them to 'pictures' folder and then it'll auto import to iPhoto? Sorry for all the questions. Hope it makes some sort of sense!
