This was mostly when importing from your camera, and then you pretty
much need to move them off the camera to somewhere. But I guess it
shouldn't really matter if you import from your camera or from some
other place on your harddrive/network filesystem or whatever.

I think it'd be pretty nice to get them to one place (which you can
easily backup/burn out to a cd and such). So that you know if you
imported it in F-Spot it'll be located in your Photos/ directory.

This might be nice either way since then you could manually place the
photos in the Photos/ directory if you use Nautilus to do that rather
than importing with F-Spot itself.
