    I only have a iPhone that I take pictures with but Apple once in a while releases updates for iPhoto to add support for third-party cameras. I am by no means a avid photographer and the like so I have no interest in getting one so I was wondering if there is any way for me to skip future updates for iPhoto as well as uninstalling the ones already installed. It only takes a couple of megabytes but I'm in a small SSD and partition my drive for Windows via Boot Camp. Is it possible ?:confused:

    If you mean those camera RAW support updates, you can just not install them if you want and it won't hurt anything, but I have no idea how one might remove the existing ones.

    It will simply update these 2 files every time:
    Code:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/RawCamera.bundle
    /System/Library/CoreServices/RawCameraSupport.bundle

    So it won't simply be adding any more files that eat space on the drive ?

    I've never kept track, but I assume every consecutive bundle might be larger than previous, due to added drivers.

    Generally speaking no. I found Windows to be much more inefficient with updates that over time will chew up your space. OSX on the other hand, I've never seen my space go down significantly with lots of updates over the course of time.
