With the ever increasing size of my library, as well as the increased resolution (and hence filesize) of individual photo's on the latest cameras, I would like to store all my photo's on an external HD, instead of the build in HD of my Mac. This is very easily done in iTunes for my music collection, but why on earth does iPhoto not offer the same simple storage option? Yes I know there is a way to copy all my stuff onto an external drive, and then hold the 'alt' key at start up of iPhoto to select a library, but I don't want to have to do that all the time, so Apple, please sort this out. Maybe we can try and persuade Apple to build in this function in the next version of iPhoto, so the more replies this thread gets to that regards, the better, maybe time for a poll??
