Re: Photo storage

I had a quick look at Prime and it appeared that all the photos I uploaded went into a single "pool" and that I couldn't split it by directory?

Perhaps gmc007 would like to impress and inspire us all with a breakdown of the measures he/she employs to protect the environment rather than just making smug put downs?
