All you really had to do is add the photos you want to the media set folder you want, then restart SA and they should show in the media set. Just make sure the Sync at Startup option is turned on in the settings tab.
You are correct about this. The only thing is that you have to use another program that can rename the files as SA does for them to jive. Which I'm a stickler about, I want all the files named with the same setup and sequence. So without the other program, you would have to do as I stated in my first post. Thanks for the settings tip, I assumed it synced all the other photos on my hard drive as other picture storing software do. Guess I should have read the manual a little better..
