I have all my photos from my previous folder stored on an external drive. each set of photos is in its own folder labelled accordingly. eg i have folders called "botanical Gardens", or "cousins birthday". This worked well in picassa ( google photo app), but doesnt work with iphoto. iphoto help says i can simply drag a folder of photos from my drive onto the source pane of iphoto to create a new folder containing all the photos but that wont work on my MBP. at present in iphoto, my photos are all lumped together in library and are unbrowsable. i dont want to have to create an album for each folder of photos as it seems like a lot of work.
