    Do you use iPhoto or a program to manage your pictures? Or do you just browse/organize your pictures yourself in the finder?

    I have a mixture of iPhoto and finder, iPhoto seems to do a better job.

    I use iPhoto, it is easy to use and everything is organized fine.

    Quick question, I thought I heard iPhoto was available for Windows? Maybe I heard wrong but I tried to get my friend to try it out and couldn't find it.

    I love iPhoto. I think it integrates well with social. I use facebook and flickr albums on it quite often.

    I've found iPhoto 09 to slow down my laptop considerably though. I'm one hell of a multitasker and usually have itunes, firefox, chrome, evernote, mail, calendar, photoshop, and illustrator up and running at any given time.

    I switched recently to using just the finder (which is how I did it back in my Win XP days). I'm liking not having my photos in that iPhoto Library archive and I feel more in control. Also, the finder never lags :cool: I use other apps to keep integrated to social.
    Of all thing iPhoto, I really miss the facial recognition :/

    I still use iPhoto '09 and I haven't noticed any slow down, even when do heavy multitasking. I don't want to jinx myself.

    I use Lightroom from adobe. I think for my needs it has more to offer then iPhoto (or Aperture).

    Naugh; I tried it once but the fact that I can't (or don't think I can) directly alter the original file bothers me. I actually have it right here and might install it again tonight; however I don't really look through my old pictures....

    To heck with it, I'll install it tonight.

    (Yes).

    iPhoto is a good program, it will help you keep all of your photos organized, and it has some cool features.

    Never use iPhoto. Did not like it years ago, and do not like it
    Today.

    Prefer my own file structure.

    I use finder and Adobe Bridge (CS5).

    I use it for memorable photos and things I take with my phone, but anything I use for say projects or other means just goes in a folder called "random pics" lol
