> That's correct. All the resampled images go in the child folder _resampled. That's a Silverstripe convention.

But on import the content of the original folder is MOVED! The child folder "_resampled" is created twice: in the original folder and in "image-gallery/<album name>". I can't believe that this is correct.

The old folder structure is left in tact because not everyone wants to import all of their files from an old folder. If you just pick one or two files to import, the old _resampled folder is still of value to the original images that were not imported.

Why not linking the original images directly, instead of moving them into a new folder?

Because an album has a physical representation in the file system. Files in the My-Album folder are representative of how the gallery will display. If some files in an album are in one place while others are actually in the album folder, the whole concept is broken.

Ah, ok. I thought you store all necessary information in the database. Nevertheless, on import I would expect that the images are copied, not moved.

Yeah, unfortunately, a file can't live in two places in SS. It only takes one ParentID.

Hoping someone can help...
I have multiple albums in my gallery. On the album page, instead of thumbnails of the albums, I would like to show little thumbnails of the photos within the albums.

Is this possible?
Thanks
