    Is there a way to manipulate photo folders with a cydia app?

    Photoalbums+ for iPad.
    But, it is only available for 4.2 to 4.3.5. I don't know of anything available for ios 5, besides syncing with the photo program on a Mac.

    Looked for the answer to this question quite a lot, but the only way to manage photo folders I've found is iFile app. By the way - the best app to manage photos appeared to be Photos. Yes, that one that is iPad's natural.
    To import photos I use Camera Kit. To import from SD or USB-flash just rename with iFile the folder on flash to DCIM and Photo will recognize it as camera. To reduce the space that photos occupies in memory you may after importing just remove folders with previews, located at /var/Mobile/Media/PhotoData/Metadata/DCIM/ - Photo app makes previews for fast scrolling, but after removing them scrolling works some slower for first two-three photos, then normally -Photo makes previews 'on the fly', but do not store them to memory againe, only while importing.

    Does it really can do something with folders in DCIM folder? Really the only one thing I'm missing in Photos on IOS 5 is removing photo from all albums when it's opened from some album - it's too hard to return to all photos list and find the picture again :)

    As I can understand you are on IOS 4, then try the app that Graywolf advised, but I really do not know what it can - I'm on 5 now and it has some sort of folders in natural Photos app, but not real folders, only database that contains shortcuts to real picture files in DCIM folder. Also may be in first post you mean albums, not folders? Then iFile is not for you - it can't operate with albums, only file folders.

    Exactly what I was going to say. Ifile will not edit the albums.
    And if you are on iOS 5, you are out of luck.
