    Hi all, I was hoping for some suggestions or guidance...

    Setup: 1.86 GHz MacBook Air w/4 GB RAM.
    Have approximately 22,000 photos that are all stored on a network drive.

    There is definitely some latency because of the setup (iTunes is also slow to sync), but iPhoto is really, really slow, to the point that if I watch the activity monitor, I can see that iPhoto becomes unresponsive for a few minutes while loading each time.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what I might do to resolve this?

    Thanks in advance.
