Copy to Google Photos

Let's say i had photos in my google drive;
-----drive:photos
--------folder 1
--------folder 2
can i do rclone copy drive:photos photos:album and it will auto create folder 1 and 2 recursively?
-----photos:album
--------album 1
--------album 2

Yes rclone will work recursively like that.

The subdirectories will be created as new albums album/folder 1 album/folder 2 as you can't actually have subdirectories in albums.
