How can I use photos on this phone? I have a ton of photos that used to live on my Pre (about 500) and I'd like to port them to my new Photon. I started by creating a "photos" directory on the SD card, attaching the Photon to the computer with a USB cable, putting it into "USB Mass Storage" mode ("Charge Only" didn't seem to make the phone's storage available to the computer) and copying over three folders of photos.

Now I have about 100 photos on the Photon (or on the SD card) and I can see them in the Gallery App under "my library", but instead of being 3 albums, it is one giant undifferentiated mass of photos.

Can anyone help me with this? Should they be in internal memory? Do I need to use some other app? Is there some magic naming convention for folders to make them albums?

The gallery app is junky on android. Download "quik pic" free from the market. Its fast, ad free, and it shows folders first then pics inside the folder.
