    Importing into iPhoto
    I have GBs upon GBs of photos from my Windows Machine, all set into Folders, all containing sub folders of images.

    I am trying to import them all into iPhotos so I can view them all full screen using front row, but the importing isn't working properly, in the sense of it doesn't bring them into iPhoto into their subfolders what they're currently in - all just into one big folder.

    Is there a way around this?

    Specs:
    20" iMac C2D 2.16ghz, 13" MacBook 2.0ghz, 60gb iPod vid, 1gb nano
    iPhoto - > Preferences -> Advanced

    Turn off the option to copy the files to the iPhoto Library folder. This will keep your folder structure in tact

    Still doing the same - as soon as I hit import they all go into the Library folder and don't make their own folder then subfolders within

    Oh I thought you were complaining about the way that iPhoto organizes folders within the Pictures directory itself. Only way you could create the same folder structure is to create all of the folders in iphoto, and then import the pictures for each folder by dragging the pictures into their proper folder
