Question, if anyone knows the answer: I have an iMac Intel core duo w/2GB RAM. I found I prefer to edit in full screen mode in iPhoto08, and have set it to default to "edit in full screen." However, I find in full screen mode that opening or moving out of pictures with adjustments (e.g. red eye, blemish removal, and some saturation or exposure adjustments) can be REALLY slow (lots of spinning beach balls). Sometimes when I open the picture, I see the original first, and then the blemish removal or red eye correction pops in. So, I'm assuming iPhoto 08 is using some kind of layers that it presents on top of the original, and that seems to be what's slowing it down. So, my question is -- are there fixes (or helps) for this issue? For instance, would more RAM help, or a faster processor? (I know this would "always" help, but are these kind of adjustment applications particularly sensitive to RAM, processor speeds, bus speeds, disk feeds, etc.) Or, if I like all the adjustments and don't mind "finalizing" the picture with adjustments (to get rid of these "layers"), is there an easy way to "accept all changes" or something like that? I tried duplicating the photo, but that seems to keep the changes as adjustments, rather than creating a new master (I tested this by, after duplicating, saying "revert to original" from the dup, and it did!). I'm sure I could drag the pic to the desktop, and then re-import, but that's pretty cumbersome, plus it will make a new event that I then have to merge back into my old event, and I want the new copy in the same event. Is there an easier way to "accept all changes"? I know this isn't an iPhoto forum, but I think this question is a bit advanced for the Apple iPhoto forum, so I figured I'd try my luck here.
