    A year ago I started getting a "start up disk is almost full" message. I got an external hard drive and set up iTunes so all of my music went directly to the external drive. That worked for a while. Now I'm getting the message again. Can I do the same thing with iPhoto? So all of the photos that get loaded onto my machine automatically go to the external drive? I can't remember how I set it up with iTunes. Also I don't think podcasts are going to the external, only music. Your help is appreciated.

    Yes you should be able to, move your iPhoto image file into your external drive and when u open iPhoto hold down Option and it should ask what file and where you want to open to, so just go to your external select and press Ok, should work.
