When I create a new folder in my photo album and place photos there from another folder, I try to delete the original, and it says I have to delete all of them. Why? And can I delete the photo in the original folder?

The photos are all in the original folder. When you make a folder and "place" a photo into it, you're simply creating a "window" or "pointer" through which you can view the original--you're not creating a copy of the photo at all. Hence, when you delete the original (and only) copy of the photo, it can no longer be viewed from any folder you "placed" it in.

If you jailbreak, you can install Photo Albums+, which will allow you to move the original to a new folder. Apple's method is fairly worthless since it doesn't actually move the original.
