I'm a recent switcher. I used to use Picasa to manage and view my pictures. I have two main gripes with iPhoto that I hope I can change: 1. Whenever I connect a camera, iPhoto pops up to import them. However, I can't see the pictures that I'm importing nor can I select which ones to import. This really, really bothers me. Sort of related: I'm doing research and I've been taking pictures of what I've been doing for my report. I take some, import, take some, import, etc. Yet, they all don't go to the same folder. They go to MSI, MSI_2, MSI_3, etc. Also, Windows used to name the files according to the folder they were imported to. I liked this. For instance, pictures from 'Beach Trip' would be named 'Beach Trip 1' 'Beach Trip 2', etc. 2. Picasa would display each of my picture folders seperately in the navigation pane. iPhoto just puts them under the year, so I had to create a bunch of seperate smart folders so that I could navigate better. I think thats it.
