    I'm loving the photo album feature of iOS 5. I want to create some photo albums, but it would be slower if I were to do it from iOS itself. Is it possible for me to do this from the PC and then transfer my photos over to the phone via iTunes?

    Sorry, I didn't realize it! Is there a limit to the folder organization? In my photos folder on my Windows PC, I have a main folder labelled as Photos, and then the sub-folders organized by dates. Will that organization appear properly on the phone?

    I haven't done this before, but do I have to use iTunes to transfer photos over? Without using iTunes, I can still at least access the DCIM folder for the camera photos from the IP4.

    I just ended up trying the create new album feature and I am not sure I totally like it ...

    1. Using Wifi Transfer app transferred some photos from PC
    2. They ended up in the Camera Roll album
    3. Selected them, selected to "Create New Album"
    4. Now the same set of photos are in the Roll and the Album
    5. If you try to delete the photos from the Roll, they get deleted from the Album also

    I am not sure that should be the design...seems like they did a symlink of the photos instead of actually creating copy or moviing them to the album

    Any thoughts ?
