    I placed every one of my JPEGS
    in a folder on my "desktop" of my computer,
    titled "ALL PICTURES".
    inside this folder I have 10 folders with pics in each.
    I don't have ANY pics in my "Documents" folder where ITUNES
    like to sync from.
    when I synced all the pics-folders to my TOUCH,
    CHOOSING a folder, I chose "ALL PICTURES" folder,
    and that was the ONLY folder I chose to sync,
    Ha! What happened was :
    The TOUCH copied over every folder
    BUT it also copied a folder titled "PHOTO LIBRARY".

    Correct me, gang, if I'm wrong...

    I believe it is set to sync to your Photo Library (iPhoto). So it will pull the pictures from there by default. I am guessing that is a default setting.

    A "Photo Library" is automatically generated of ALL your photos -- so if you sync several folders of photos you can see them separately, or go to Photo Library to see them all. It's like the music library in iTunes -- the photos aren't actually copied twice, so it's not taking up extra space.

    Also, the iPod touch does not support viewing or syncing of folder-in-folder structures.
    For example, you cannot:

    1. Create 'Folder A'
    2. Then create 'Folder B' inside 'Folder A'
    3. Then place photos inside 'Folder B' and sync iPod touch.

    In this case, iPod touch will only display the contents of 'Folder A' which in this case would be empty.

    iPod touch only recognizes photos which are synced using a one-tier
    folder system. For Example:

    1. Create 'Folder A'
    2. Place photos insider 'Folder A'
    3. Sync iPod touch
