| What you can do if there are not too many subfolder per folder is open a
| folder, select all images (Ctrl-A) and assign a token to the images. Repeat
| this for every subfolder. Afterwards go "Home" and select all images with
| the corresponding token.
And this statement is not true for the SVN version. In this version you do 
have the directories represented nicely (see the news section on the web, a 
month ago or so)

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?
