what should be fixed in the first place? Allowing multiple selections in the navigational panel? This is not a bug! Navigation is a way to put the user in a place, that's what navigation is for. Selecting many places at the same time could create a breach in the space-continuum and break reality. Or even worse: it certainly will have consequences over the way you manage your collection. It's navigation, don't mess with that.

Adding Albums to the concept of "items" is giving them it's true power: You can assign a big icon to he Album, but you will never see it big because you cannot resize the left panel icons. Imagine what it is to see them the same size you are watching the rest of the items. Cool!

Go further. You have assigned a template to a certain album (nice to have feature), so your pictures look like a book, or a photo-album. You will see this item as a book in 3d, and in the cover, the icon of the main photo. Now place that image in a little icon on the left panel and you will lose the best of it.
