Tip for Syncing Photos from Windows to iOS

Reader F.D.M. wrote in to share this tip:

I’ve had numerous questions from Window users (the ones that do not own Photoshop (Elements)) that are confused about the way iTunes syncs (root) folders and (sub) folders, filled with photos. For instance, if you have a rootfolder called c:\photos with subfolders c:\photos\holiday and c:\photos\work and you sync, selecting “Choose folder” and then “All folders”, which is a logical choice, all your photos are dumped into one big ‘album’ on the iPad, causing great confusion. Instead, in order to create different albums on the iPad, you must select “Selected folders” and then choose the folders that you want to sync.

I’ve posted this tip in relation to all of the ebooks about iOS, since I assume it works the same regardless of the device.
