I synced up a bunch of photos from iTunes. They are all in separate folders for different galleries. However, on my iPhone a separate gallary was created called "Photo Library". This is just a gallery of ALL THE OTHER PHOTOS I synced. So not only do I have the photos I want in their own sub-folders, but the iPhone duplicated all my photos and put them in one place...WTF.

Why would it do that. It has doubled the size of my photos on the iPhone as well. Why on earth would it create a separate gallery with ALL my photos. This happens on both my iPhone and my wifes...with separate photos...

Is this by design? If so it's stupid.

The Photo Library isn't a duplicate of all of your photos - it just shows them all together. The iPhone is storing your photos in individual folders, as you have them on your computer, but gives you the Photo Library option as another way to view.
