Cant shut faces off, Cant shut locations off, its free, its iPhoto, not for pros though, they have to buy aperture, becuase.... well. iPhoto is not designed beyond the demo for pros, they have to pay or keep their files on the HD in folders. So how exactly does iPhoto loose photos, i just gave it a test over the last few months and it acted up on me too, i put over 6000 photos, 4MB large plus some videos., before i knew it when i went to load a video it said data missing. I did the usual, ran disk utilities, cross referenced the app package files by examining original masters with modified photos, no luck, every single photo or video i found corrupt was corrupt in all of iPhotos packaged folders, both master originals and modified. how in the world does this take place and why would anyone put up with it beats me, but i like to know cause i am planning to use a new Canon 5D mkii in a few weeks and i want to be sure my next 10,000 photos do not end up missing.
