I recently discovered Bridge. Always had it, but never used it. I very much like that you can see all the information of a selected photo, and that you can sort photos on for example dimensions. It works faster than iPhoto too. The best thing though, is that you can make your own folder-structures.
That's the biggest disadvantage of iPhoto I think. Now I have hundreds (as a matter of speaking) events, which could be grouped to a a few dozens. For example: "Music" > "Concerts" > "Deep Purple" > "California Jam '74"
I know I can create (Smart) albums in iPhoto, but that merges everything into one. If I use my example again, if I would create an album "Music", there would be "California Jam '74" in it, but also an other concert from Deep Purple. And concerts of other bands. And other things related to music. And all of that merged into one huge 'event'.
Am I right or am I missing something?
But, iPhoto looks fantastic, the slideshows are superior, and those new Places and Faces are awesome. But that absence of a folder structure is killing me. If the events were just folder thumbnails...
I'm thinking, what if I do "don't import photos to iPhoto library", and make my own folder structures? That way I can use Bridge as it supposed to be, and if I want to show (off with) my photos I'll go to iPhoto and spend a minute finding the right event.
I've installed Leopard and iPhoto '09 on my Mac. I have iPhoto 6 on an external hard drive. How do I import the iPhoto 6 photos and book projects into iPhoto '09 (I also want iPhoto '09 library to be on the external hard drive)?
I've been trying unsuccessfully to import 8gb worth of photos directly from my DSLR (a Canon 40D with CF card) to iPhoto and it keeps telling me I've run out of HD space before it's finished even though I've over 15gb to start with. I tried again tonight after freeing my HD up to 29 gb and it got to about 90% of the files when iphoto crashed, but I was monitoring it in finder only to see my free space go from 29gb to 10gb. Why do I need more than twice the memory card capacity to import these photos?
I cant import any photos or videos without iphoto crashing. I have an Ipad2 and iphone4 with a brand new imac running Lion. Since I bought my imac it has always had problems with iphoto. I have removed iphoto and reinstalled a fresh copy of it via the CD that came with my imac. Also, I have no plugins installed so no divx or anything like that.

I recently switched over to a Mac from a PC which I've had for years. Since I never had a photo storage program on my PC, all my photos were kept in folders on my hard drive. When I got my Mac, all my photos were imported into iPhoto and now I simply use iPhoto for everything I upload. My question is, can I delete the old photos (now imported into iPhoto but still on my hard drive in seperate folders) from my hard drive to save space without deleting them from iPhoto? I checked my settings and I do have the "copy to iPhoto library" option checked but I don't know if that makes a difference. Any information would be helpful - it would be nice if I knew I could delete photos that are essentially duplicates to save space on my hard drive.
After installing Snow Leopard on both of my computers, I have found that while the computers recognize my digital camera it will not allow me to import photos into i-photo and eventually you have to just force quit i-photo to get out of it.
I'm using iCloud and popped a couple of images I'd just processed into iPhoto on my iMac.
Went to my MBP so I could upload the images to my website - they appeared in iPhoto in very quick time (impressive) but I needed to locate them in "finder" so I could upload them but had the devil of a time finding them, and still haven't.
I used to use dropbox for this - maybe I'll go back. It was so easy!

I have 200 GB of iCloud storage for my Mac and 3 iPhones. The storage on my Mac shows 183GB available but I have 60 GB of photos in iPhoto so I don't know if this means my photos are protected. iPhoto is checked in iCloud.
I am opening iPhoto, and when I go to my iCloud folder the albums are their, but there are no photos in the album. My mac mini is all up to date and so in iPhoto. The odd thing is the photo albums are on my iPad and iPhone with all of the photos. I have tried signing out of iCloud and that did nothing.

I want to have all my photos show up in my iPhoto library. They always did. However, a few weeks ago (while traveling and adding a lot of photos), I began to not see all my photos in my library. In fact, when I look at "Events" there are greyed out boxes that have the date photos were taken, it indicates that there are 0 photos, and there is a shades-of-grey icon that has a palm tree and horizon. I had never seen this before. Some of my photos from my travel ended up in my library just fine. Others are in limbo. I found the others in My Photo Stream, but I can't figure out how to add them to the library, where they belong.
When I show Package Contents from Home>Pictures>iPhoto Library, all the pictures are there. They are just not showing up in iPhoto. I have quit and restarted iPhoto. Do you think my iPhoto app is corrupt?
I just got a new macbook and I want to get all the pictures from my phone to iPhoto. On my iPhone are all my iPhoto events and I can't figure out how to transfer them. I know how to tranfer each new picture I take, but not the older ones. How can I do this?
I'm using iTunes 10.5.3 (3) on Mac OS X 10.7.3 When I drag and drop music from my iTunes library onto the iPad the iPad will first start to 'sync' but I'll notice that it immediately starts to try and sync up all of my music (I have more music than I have space on my iPad so that would just fail eventually but it starts the slow wi-fi sync of all my music). I check the settings for the iPad (via iTunes) and I notice that the Music tab's "sync" option has suddenly been enabled again (when I've previously turned it off).
This is very strange and annoying as all I want to do is copy music from iTunes onto my iPad. I can do this no problem with my iPhone (has the same sync settings turned off and that doesn't re-enable the sync setting when I drag and drop music from iTunes to it? The only difference from my iPad is that i have the apps tab 'sync' option turned on - see P.s below for more on that)
if I turn off syncing of apps for my iPad I get a message that tells me 22 apps will be deleted and that all data will be lost as well. I'm assuming because some apps I've paid for and some are free I'll be able to re-download them no problem, it's just that some apps have extra settings/configurations on them that I'd rather not lose and I just don't see how turning off the 'sync' option would affect them? Just leave them on the iPad device and stop trying to sync them with iTunes??

When I get my Imac, tomorrow, I'll be putting Photoshop Lightroom and Photoshop Elements on it. I've been using Elements as an organizer and for editing/projects for years and I like it very much. Lightroom will be my advanced photo exposure editor. I'm a PC person, so I'll be feeling my way around the Mac for awhile.
i have returned all my photos into the new iphoto 9.1.However they aren't displayed the way they used to be. The computer is ignoring all the dates i entered on the individual film rolls and displaying them with date that's embedded on the digital images.An example is i have a film roll which contains photos of my cat Salem which range from 2004 to 2012. This 'folder' used to be displayed at the bottom of all the film rolls as i had it dated 12/25/2020 so i knew where it was and could add to it easily. Now though it's near the top lumped together with 2004 photos dated 2004-2012.How do i get iPhoto to display my photo film rolls the way they were on iphoto 6?I would go back to running TIiger and the apps that came with it including iPhoto 06 but i need snow leopard as i have bought two new Lacie 2 TB drives for storage and they need a newer operating system.

i currently traded in an old macbook and gave my mom my imac. I bought a new mac pro but there is an issue with find my mac. i disabled find my mac on the imac and the macbook was wiped by bestbuy. however, both computers still show up on my find my mac app. it's not a huge deal but it's just annoying seeing 2 devices in there that will never actually be found.
Everytime I need to reboot windows 7 running on boot camp, it will disable the option key so i am FORCED to boot into OSX. Only after a reboot from OSX or holding the power button will it let me use the option key again.
I have a Kodak easyshare V1253 Camera.It won't let me import photos and videos from the camera via iPhoto. Just says error downloading image.If I go into bootcamp it imports fine on windows.How can i fix this? I would much like to have a way to take pictures directly from the camera rather than through iPhoto like in the finder. Is this possible as when i plug in my camera nothing comes up.
