I have created an app that tracks projects during their life cycle.  Throughout the process numerous documents need to be uploaded and attached to the project. The issue is that sometimes this can be hundreds of documents for a single project.  Is there a way so that the document library has folders which would allow users to then put the "pictures" in the "pictures" folder etc.  They would also need to be able to then download individual "pictures."  Our app is connected with the Amazon plug in if that makes a difference.

Rather than folders I suggest that you have a multiple choice field to identify the picture type. Then any report of photos can instantly be Dynamically Filtered according to the Type. 

You could also have an embedded report summarized by Type and the user could drill into any Type they wanted.  You can choose to call your Type field actually "Folder", so that users think that they are filed in folders if that is what they are used to.

 Think of the Type (or "folder") as your virtual folders.
