I have 2207 photos in iPhoto (2.2gigs, give or take) and whenever i open it up, it kills my computer to the point that even esposé doesn't work smoothly, and forget about typing IM's in Adium until it finished loading. All I have open is Adium, mail, safari, and itunes usually when iPhoto does this to me. Closing iPhoto is just as bad. So... um, does this happen to everyone who uses iPhoto? Or am I just unique/special? and if it happens to everyone, how could apple have released something so crappalicious? BTW I'm using iPhoto 5.0.4 with plans to upgrade to iLife o7 after MWSF. EDIT: Ok, so I found this, and it turns out I have a Nikon camera, which is part of my problem. If I upgrade, will it speed up iPhoto? I'm reluctant to strip all of the EXIF data from my photos as I like knowing when they were taken and where... anyone else have any thoughts?
