    Hey guys, Im looking for a good iPhoto alternative. I was hoping for something free, but if it need to buy it, that would not be a problem. anyone have any ideas?

    Maybe you could start by giving reasons you don't like iPhoto. That way, we'll know better what to recommend to you.

    A difference between iPhoto and Aperture that results in Aperture taking up "less" space than iPhoto is that when you edit photo's in iPhoto, the program creates a copy to edit, thus you have two copies of the same photo. Aperture doesn't physically edit the photo or even a copy of the photo. It just writes what you want to do to the photo and generates a preview of what it looks like, and in order to get the edited photo, you need to export it, therefore making a real copy of it.

    Can't Burn a Universally Viewable CD of Photos

    In other words if you make a cd of your photographs you can't send it for viewing on anything other than iPhoto. Thanks for picture arena link, looks good.
