I've got a 500 GB HD + A 250 GB Samsung 840 SSD
Right now i have the SSD plugged in to the USB slot, as i am waiting for this to arrive:
The samsung Migration assistance does not work on the Mac
What I want to do is use the SSD as the boot drive and keep all my applications and pictures on it (iPhoto and My Pictures (75 GB).
Everything else i would like to keep on the HDD.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Well, it depends if current total information size on you HDD is less or equal to SSD capacity. Then you can do the same as I did back in Feb:
1. Plug the new SSD into the Mac Mini ( via USB or install it inside )
2. Download and install Carbon Copy Cloner or Super Duper
3. Clone your HDD to SSD
4. Boot from SSD
5. Go to your “Home” folder on SSD and delete those folders you do not need.
6. If you want, you can also create symbolic links in your “Home” folder on SDD to point to HDD (Documents, Movies, etc).
Ideally, I’d also suggest moving content from HDD to some third party storage temporary, format the HDD and restore only folders you need back on HDD.
