An album is a folder, images are files. But digikam only lets you browse 
configured root folders, known in digikam as collections. This is because 
digikam keeps additional information about the images in its database. If you 
dump images in folders used for digikam collections, digikam will notice at 
startup, and update the database (unless you ask it not to, afaik).
