Best way to organize photos?
I take (and save) A LOT of photos on my iPhone. I need a way to organize my CameraRoll. I have over 5k photos in my camera roll and need a way to organize them other than syncing them and putting them in different folders on my MBP.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Only thing I can think of is to drag all of the photos onto you computer (you can find do that by finding your iPhone under "My Computer" on a PC) then make up new folder titled "iPhone Photos" or whatever you'd like. Then make up a folder inside "iPhone Photos" for each category. Home...Work...Family...Nature...etc...etc.
In iTunes, after you plug in your iPhone, click on the photos tab, browse for your "iPhone Photos" folder and 'check' all of the newly created folders. You'd want to then delete them from your iPhone's camera roll so there aren't duplicates on your phone.

Thanks! This is a much better solution than just a huge random assortment of photos that I currently have going on my phone... Maybe a future release will include the drag and drop folder method on the phone.

Whats the best way to do this in iPhoto on my Mac?
Sync ALL photos (out of camera roll), delete them all, and should I organize them into different events or albums?
I can't stand going into my camera roll anymore and scrolling through ALL these photos.

What does Picasa do? I have been searching a little for a simple solution for this. I know that when I sync my phone the photos are stored somewhere because when I went from my 3GS to my 4, all the old photos were synced. I don't want to have to do all that organizing on my PC. I know I can open the phone as an external storage device and sort my photos but that is so cumbersome! I wish there was a way to do it on the phone, like making new folders under the Camera Roll folder and moving photos to whatever folder I want it in. Is that what iPhoto does and can Picasa do that?

Okay, I'm playing with Picasa but I'm totally confused. It imported all the photos from my computer, even graphics from various programs and stupid stuff like that. After spending over an hour removing all that junk from Picasa, I figured out how to import my pictures from my iPhone to Picasa but I've been at this for 3 hours and have yet to see how I can do what I originally downloaded this stupid program to do! *sigh*
All I wanted was a way to organize photos on my phone into folders. Can I not do that without involving every picture that I have ever taken with every digital camera I have ever owned since 2007. I am so frustrated right now that I want to throw both the laptop and my phone out the window!

Unfortunately, Picasa isn't a great place to start just for that if you weren't already using Picasa.
If you just want to organize your photos into folders, just drag and drop, then make sure you select those folders to sync to your iPhone.
