    i've noticed that with Tiger, iPhoto automatically uploads duplicate photos from my camera without prompting me (iPhoto prompted me before uploading dups in Panther). Does anyone know anyway around that?

    Hi GiantsFan,

    I had a quick look in the main iPhoto prefs and couldn't find anything, but i managed to find the reference in the preference file. So, you should be able to stop the automatic importing of duplicates by opening the Terminal and typing

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.iPhoto ImportDuplicates 0
    This just changes the entry in the prefs file located in

    SystemDisk/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iphoto.plist

    Hope that cures the problem,
