[OS X TeX] Spaces in file or folder names

Sure, I much prefer the output I get from LaTeX to what I get with 
Word, but I find it very frustrating that file names (and worse, folder 
names) do not work. File names I can live with even if I don't like it. 
But I would like to include graphics while leaving them in the folders 
where the analyses are done, and it simply is too difficult to always 
avoid using spaces in a whole hierarchy of folders. As a result, I'm 
forced to save copies of my figures in one folder inside where each 
LaTeX document sits.

Is there a better way? If not, can we hope to see LaTeX evolve in that 

By the way, I tried only putting aliases in the Figures folder inside 
the folder of a LaTeX document, but that did not work. I know "symbolic 
links" have slightly different properties than aliases, but I never 
explored that. Would they be a solution?
