Ok, I do have a question regarding the iPhone. Of course I did do some research myself and found different ways to go after this problem but I would love to hear your inputs.

So, my problem is synchronizing photos from my iPhone. I would like to have the pictures I take organized in album. Unfortunately, you can't achieve this without synchronizing either with iPhoto or some folder on your hard drive.

I didn't want to use iPhoto because I want to keep it clean with my "real" pictures on my hard drive. Only way to go then was choosing a folder. So I did and it work as far for the creation of an album in the iPhone. But now there are the pictures in the albums, those who are still in the camera roll and some in an album called Photo Library.

The albums I created seem to be ok. They have all the pictures in it that are supposed to be there. The Camera Roll still seems to have all of the pictures (I don't want that). And then there's the Photo Library that seems to have one more than the total of actual pictures I seem to have on my iPhone.

So much for a long comment. Hope it is more or less understandable what I tried to explain before.

Someone knows of better ways how to handle this (I would like to be this default on the iPhone without the need to synchronize with a Mac)? Anyone maybe having the same problem I do?

I'm just curious to here the thoughts of the community. Thanks.
