How can I migrate my wife's digital pictures from Photoshop Elements 5 on WinXP to iPhoto 8 and preserve the albums?

There aren't many pictures with tags, which the "Write tags to file" command would address. Instead, saving the albums (I think they're called) is most important, as she has sorted out her pictures into many small groups.
I see this Apple Support discussion
, but it doesn't affirmatively mention the albums. Would importing the (Windows) folders of pictures one-at-a-time create new iPhoto Albums/Events?
Thanks for any advice, or any clarification: I don't have much experience with PSE, other than rebuilding its catalog periodically for her, and running full exports to an external drive for backups.
