I have some pictures in my profile folder on Facebook that I want to move to another album. I don't want to lose the comments posted for each of those pictures.
Is this possible to move these across without losing the information and comments?

It is possible, just not for Profile Picture folder or any other auto generated albums. The Facebook Help page How can I move photos between albums? contains a step by step guide:
1. Go to the full album view of an existing album. 2. Select "Edit Album Info" on the bottom left of the page. 3. Select the "Edit Photos" tab. 4. Select a destination album from the drop-down menu under each photo you wish to move. 5. Click "Save Changes."
There is also a Facebook app, Fotolink.
"Fotolink helps you to upload and download photos using drag and drop from facebook to your computer or to any online photo service."
I haven't used Fotolink but I read that when moving pictures comments and likes might not move with the pictures.
