air mem and iphoto

need help in deciding which is best...
due to the limited storage of the air,
would you run iphotos off of external or just keep certain photos on air then
have older photos on an external...
also if run from external what conflicts would arise with icloud and
photostream.
loving the air, its the best, but cant help feeling handicapped by storage.

thanks in advance...

geez, you must have some snaps!
why not keep say 10-20gb of the latest ones on board and hive the rest off to an external drive.
I've got all my pix and music on the 128gb SSD internally and still have 40gb+ available
