Naming the picture folder

If I import a Web page with pictures, the picture folder gets a name "Pictures_for_Imported_Web_page". If I rename the page, picture folder retains its name. Shouldn't picture folder be bound to its page? Of course it should be possible to separately manage images from page picture folder (move them to other folders/delete/add), but they could be originally placed in a folder that is owned by respective page. The way it is now, picture folders are totally independent from their pages, and it can be difficult to manage them for large number of pages.

This is true -- we wanted to give you maximum flexibility to put pictures wherever you wanted them, reuse pictures, etc. After you import a web page you can rename pictures or their folders as much as you like and the site will still publish correctly.
