I was working on my rmbp the other night and I used iphoto to editi some of my photos, browse them, zoom in out for details etc etc.
After about 40 mins of working with iphoto I checked activity monitor and I saw that iphoto was using 1GB of system RAM!
Is that considered normal behavior for iphoto? I really could not believe that after 30 mins the application required so much RAM... I mean what would happen if I continued working for like 2 hours? It could go to 2GB ram??
Please help me understand how this works because i really scratch my head around this.

Yes, that is normal. iPhoto (and most OS X apps) will use any memory available to cache your work/data. If you stop using iPhoto and launch another app that needs the memory, OS X will allocate what the new app needs. Don't sweat it.
