    Proper way to load lots of pics?

    I have a tonnnn of pics id like to add. But i cannot have them all tossed into one folder .. i currently have them sorted in their own labeled folders, and id like to preserve those folders if possible.

    so can someone explain how i take lets say 50 folders of pics, drag them onto phone, and have them add to the gallery sorted as i had them?

    You can pretty much do exactly what you just said. Drag the individual folders onto your SD card. The gallery will pick them up in each of their respective folders and display the names of the folders.

    I added 8 folders of pics to my SD card this weekend and they each contained upwards to 300 plus pics in each folder. When I opened gallery I got the loading notification for over an hour until I finaly gave up and erased 7 of the folders. Then it took about 20 minutes to load the one folder.

    Double Twist does a good job of loading photos. It's free, just google it.

    Why would you want 2400 pics on your phone?

    Wherever you want them. Some people place photos under a Media folder at the root but the Gallery will find them unless you take steps to specifically exclude them.

    Same reason(s) anyone would want any other number of photos. Why does the "why" matter?

    as far as getting them there, there are lots of wifi options too, like estrongs that lets you browse network shares.

    i've found that having access to albums on facebook does just as good of a job as keeping them on my phone.

    I'm not a music person and don't have but a couple of songs loaded. But I love photos and videos. I tried to put my entire photo album on my Droid because some one is always asking about my family at church. I tried locating Double Twist, not on Market, and only available for PC as far as I can make out from the vast number of hits on Google.
