Additional data: The +My Pictures+ folder is currently 128 MB in size. Inside that are the different folders with all my pictures, which collectively add up to around 41.6 MB. The remaining +iPod Photo Cache+ folder is 86.6 MB. So the size has trippled over the base set of pictures without any apparent benefit. It is as if the cache folder has simply copied every photo, taking twice the size needed to do it!
Actually, Apple has an answer for this on this support section, which I found by Googling it!:
+When using iTunes to sync photos to iPod photo, iTunes creates a folder called iPod photo Cache in the top level of the folder you selected for your photos. Picking another folder to sync does not erase the previous iPod photo Cache.+
+Depending on how many photos are being synced, the hard drive could fill up.+
+Drag the folder named iPod photo Cache to the Trash or Recycle Bin.+
