I am new to mac and have been used to using windows PC in the past. On my windows I would manually organise my photos in folders into the photos folder. My folders looked something like this. 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Inside each of these folders were sub-folders like this. 2008- 01-05-2008 - Beach 03-06-2008 - Holiday 01-05-2008 - Birthday Party 2009- 01-05-2009 - Holiday 15-08-2009 - Beach 2010- 01-05-2010 - Beach 03-06-2010 - Holiday Etc,etc, Now, I would like to start using iPhoto on my mac and would like to keep some sort of organisation similar to the above, Q1) What is the best way to do this in iPhoto? Time machine is keeping a backup of iPhoto but I would also like to keep a backup on another external hard drive of just the original jpeg photos (not the iPhoto file) so they can be viewed on windows computers. Basically a folder/sub folders just like I had on my PC. Q2) What is the best way to to backup the original jpeg photos? Would it be best for me to import from my camera right into iPhoto and then somehow manually make my backup from there OR would it be best for me to import from my camera into the photos folder, make a backup, then import into iPhoto and delete from photos?
