VASTLY superior solution
Authored by: SOX on Feb 14, '04 01:02:39AM

Want to have your cake and eat it too?
You can create two directories that are aliases (links) of each other. one will be the flat photoshop organization, the other will be your ma's hierarchy.

1) let mom create her tree in her pictures directory
2) open a terminal
3) find /Users/mom/Pictures | cpio -dpl /Users/mom/link_pictures
4) import link_pictures into iphoto

you should wind up with two different organizations of the same photos. These should be links of each other but not copies.
