You'r iPhoto library displays your pictures as thumbnails. Double click on a specific picture to make it larger, or drag it to your desktop and open it using Preview to view it in its actual size.

Thats because iPhoto saves thumbnail versions of your pictures to use as small previews in the library.

You shouldn't navigate the Pictures folder to use iPhoto.

Simply drag the picture you want from the iPhoto Library in the iPhoto App, to your desktop - then open it using Preview.

It couldn't be simpler.

I don't think its to do with the camera, its how iPhoto's index works. So it loads faster, it saves thumbnails of your images in its own folder - then finds the original 'large' image when you drag/open it.

Good luck with the D50.

By the way, I'm torn between that and a Canon DSLR.

Whats it like so far?

I have a D-50, bought about 4 months ago, and am a new Mac user with iPhoto and PSE. Have had absolutely no problems with iPhoto either doing the double click or drag and drop.

Love the D50 by the way -- now trying to figure out what lens to upgrade to from the kit lens....

Me too. Let me know if you find a good one :) . They all seem bloody expensive to me.

Well at least you have a better built camera. ;) Megapixels really aren't everything, not unless you want to print at like 11" x 14". However, I'm not likely to do that, and most of my photos are just saved and viewed on my computer LCD screen, so I'll continue to enjoy my D50. :)

And about lenses, don't worry so much for now. People usually won't be able to tell whether a photo was taken using a cheap or expensive lens, so don't let all the lens talk scare you. :) It doesn't come into play until you want to shoot something specific. I mean, you can't fool me into thinking that your 18-55 mm kit lens is a 105 mm macro lens since it can't take the same type of photos, but generally speaking, it's hard to tell quality right off the bat unless you put it through some side-by-side tests with other lenses, and using resolution charts and such.

On the other hand, you won't take full advantage of your camera unless you pick up some good lenses (that don't need to be expensive), since there ARE things you won't be able to do with the kit lens that I can do with my Sigma 24-70 mm f/2.8.
