    When receiving multiple pics in Mail, is there a quick way to get them into iPhoto? When I click save it doesn't seem to import them into my library. I have been dragging and dropping right into iPhoto, which works, but time consuming with multiple pics. Any tips? Thanks!!

    If you're on Tiger you can click the slideshow button. Once in the slideshow it has an icon you can click that adds them to iphoto. I haven't done this in ages, but that's how I remember it.

    If you hold the mouse button down on the "Save" thing you can "add to iPhoto". This is in 10.4.

    Yeah, it saves them to your Last Roll. I use this all the time.

    Yes as DL says in his reply. If you use the slideshow method you can choose which pics are added to iphoto. The downside of that is you must click add to iphoto for each pic you want to add.
