I'm a longtime PC user who just got a macbook. I copied all my picture files to my macbook and opened up iPhoto. I used the "Import to Library" option to load all my pictures. I noticed that iPhoto copied all my photos to a Photo Library file under the Pictures folder. Why does iPhoto make copies of the pictures and store them in a separate "file"? This makes it confusing because I have all the pictures that I originally copied but then when I'm in iPhoto, the program is actually accessing the pictures from this separate location. - Is iPhoto not able to just read files from a normal folder structure? - How do I manage/organize individual picture files if I'm not within iPhoto? - How do I burn picture files to a CD/DVD if I can't see the individual pictures when not in iPhoto?
