Inside my iphoto library my "modified" folder weighs 4GB. Is there a way to fuse both Originals and Modified folders? And dont need the originals since most of the modification I do my pictures is to change orientation. That way I could save more space. I love iphoto. I use Aperture, bridge and photoshop for work but for my family pictures, iphoto is great. What makes me nervous about iphoto is the possibillity of losing my 36GB worth of pictures (like HDD dying or the library getting corrupt). I manually backup the iphoto library to an external drive and keep a copy in my imac at work. Does Time machine backs up the iphoto library.
