Folders > Galleries upload option
Ability to map local folders to new galleries in Irista i.e. if I upload a Holiday 2013 I should be able to select an option to create a gallery of this folder automatically
WIthout the facility of uploading folders with their contents exactly as they are on your device the Irista cloud is not at all of interest.

When uploaded onto irista, the photos in a folder get separated and put into a date order on the timeline, it is very difficult to find and put them back into a gallery.
Even those who have not already, we will all end up having thousands or tens of thousands of photos. Nobody is going to keep those thousands in just one folder they will be divided in directories and folders.Though the Timeline feature is nice, it is not the one solution that fits all needs, Timeline is nice for viewing but not quite as good for organizing. Folders or something equivelant is a must in order to keep our photos managable

I have just uploaded 2400 photos from my old Windows Vista PC Photo Gallery which were in Folders and had details of date, size, subject and quality. All this info is lost in irista and I don't want to have to spend hours transferring these photos into new 'Gallery' locations. I am very disappointed and will probably abandon this facility and stick with Microsoft One Drive.

I have the feeling I can't really control uploads once started
I can't share photos with a link or give access to a folder
I can't bulk erase or bulk download selected photos
I uploaded fotos in folders but now the consistency has gone because they're all listed by date instead of being grouped as they were in the folder (so also no control there)
I may have overlooked info on functionality, but this is my first reaction on this service that is otherwise greatly appreciated. :-)
