Ughh so if I put all my pictures into a folder, should I just drag and drop that folder into my "photos" folder and then drag that into iPhoto? Or should I use the import feature?

I have a lot of photos in different folders in my "photos" folder well when I installed Mavericks and iPhoto all these folders disappeared, where are they?

Connect iPhone - open iPhoto - download photos from iPhone.

I don't have Maverick… but every Mac computer, your photos are stored on your User Folder. Open Finder - click on name (i.e. Joe Smo)

You can create folders inside of iPhoto or any where on your Mac.

iphoto will sync your iphone photos automatically if you connect your iPhone and open iPhoto. But i just leave photo stream enabled and when i open iPhoto it syncs automatically.
