    I want to use frontrow to show off my digital pics to my family but i dont use iPhoto so can i define my photo directory somehow so frontrow knows where to look? (i dont like how iphoto organizes your photos)

    You can try putting an alias of you picture folder in your iPhoto library. The alias thing works for movies, so its worth a shot.

    Umm, I'm not sure. Perhaps just the picture folder?

    I use Front Row for movies on my TV only and have not put any pictures in my pics folder so I'm not sure what directory FR looks at.

    This thread goes over this problem. It's not elegant, but it should work.
