As the size of my Photo Library increases, the speed of iPhoto noticably decreases (17" Powerbook -1Gb RAM). Other than archiving to DVD/CD, is there any way to speed iPhoto up? Or are there any suggestions for alternatives? I really like the functionality of iPhoto, and it's integration to the other apps as well as .Mac, but I can't live with the poor performance. Perhaps using another program (Photoshop's album viewer?) for all photos, then import only those I want into iPhoto to be published to the web, hard cover book, slide shows, etc? A search turned up the following tools to work with iPhoto iPhoto Buddy iPhoto Library Manager Or these alternatives: iView Media Pro 2 (Looks nice, but expensive at $160) Graphic Converter Any help?
