IPhone Photo albums duplication

    Dear All,
    So I have an issue that I just cannot seem to solve:
    Problem: In my Iphone 4s iOS 6.0.1 there are two albums “Photo Library” and “Screen Saver slideshow” both of which contain the exact same images
    (Screen saver slideshow is the name of the file on my mac from which I update the Iphone).
    How do I manage the albums so that I have only one of these albums? Many thanks for your help.

    Brooks—That’s normal behavior. The Camera Roll has *everything* in it. Your albums are a subset of that. Check it out—if you remove a file from your “Screen Saver Slideshow” it will remain in Camera Roll, but if you remove it from Camera Roll it will be removed from the other Album, too (in fact, you’ll be presented with a “Delete Everywhere” dialog informing you of what you’re about to do).
