ok, I like to use iPhoto for all my digital camera work and I am a graphic artist so I use it also for my graphic portfolio. While I have works in progress or when they are finished they often are in file sizes that range over 100 megs. No I usually sote these working or finished files in the appropiate folders which are not the unique filing method that iPhoto uses, that would be too irritating. So when I import my graphic work into iPhoto for general browsing and for clients to look at, I noticed that instead of merely pointing to that actual file as it does for Albums it actually duplicates the files. Now on a 40 PB HD that can add up very fast. My question is, is there a work around? Or do i just have to use another image browser? Is there a way to import without duplication? If I need to use a new Browser, any better ones than iPhoto out there. Thanks for all the help , any suggestions is appreciated!
