Hey everyone! In August I purchased a new (and first ever) Mac, a 12" PB. About six months ago I abandoned the PC and switched from being a lifelong PC/Windows user to an Apple advocate. However, I have found that many programs especially Apple created apps are not intuitive and "manageable" as I would like to believe, iPhoto being one of them. The main problem I have with iPhoto is the way it organizes the photos in the harddrive. Granted it is much easier and quicker to organize within the program, but the way it indexes them by date seems inconvenient? I would like to arrange my photos in my harddrive based on folders with subjects or categories, then have those folders correspond to my iPhoto setup. This is easily accomplished using Google's Picasa. Maybe because of my novice status to Apples I am not aware of a way around this problem, but I have consulted the Apple store technicians and was warned not to tamper with the original source of the photos. Is there anyone out there that can emphatize with me? Even better, offer a solution to this problem. Any third party software for Macs that offer an alternative to iPhoto? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
