Actually I have another problem:

I am using an Iphone5 and if I want to see pictures within the AnkiApp on a card on my Iphone I have to store every picture or every file on my PC in this folder:

C:\Users\Markus\Documents\Anki\Benutzer 1\

If I store it into another folder everything works fine within the pc anki program,
but as soon as I try it on my mobile phone the pictures are not loaded because I want to put them in a subfolder.

The Problem here is: with more and more data the folder becommes very crowded that is why I want to ask if there is a addon or anything else to solve this problem, so that I can use subfolders for storing files(images,videos,...) and that they are displayed as well on my phone.

Best wishes

PS: .png ; .gif files as images are not working on iphone
That is why you alwayse have to use .jpg files for your images

    Anki requires all files to be in that folder, so I'm afraid things will not work if you put files in subfolders.

    AnkiMobile supports gif images, not just jpg.
