        ReportedBy: deepak antrix net

I just launched digikam for the first time & imported a new folder of pictures (using Album > Import > Import Folders)  After the import operation was completed, the digikam main window went back to its original new & blank state with no indication of where the imported pictures are!

It is only after a bit of fiddling around did I discover that the 'My Albums' in the Album side bar can be double-clicked upon to reveal the imported folders. There is no visual indication that My Albums is a tree-view style widget! This is not at all obvious to a new user!!  

A suggestion I would offer would be to immediately open the newly imported folder of pictures. This would also make the tree view of the My Albums side bar clear.
