I have organized a large set of photos on my PC into a nice "directory tree" or hierarchy of nested folders. The nesting structure makes sense since there is a clear hierarchical relationship amongst the photos, and there are so many of them. Viewing them is easy on my PC - I just navigate the folder structure and go into "Picture Viewer" in each folder to see all the pictures on a particlar topic.

Now, I want to do this on my Mac. Since we lack a "Picture Viewer" function in the iMac world (unless I go look for a freeware one), I am wondering if iPhoto can hold this kind of structure. Basically, albums within albums. I've tried to create a new one and move it inside an existing one and it doesn't seem to like that. Is one level the best iPhoto can do? If so, that is pathetic. The world is more complex than that. I am using iPhoto 2.0.1.

If it is possible, my extra credit question for whoever tackles this is "can I import the folder structure into iPhoto and keep the nested structure as a tree of albums?". Thanks.

iMac G4 1 GHz, Mac OS X (10.3.9), 768 MB
