I have never really gotten to grips with iPhoto, and thought it about time i got into it! So i just have a few quick questions to clarify some stuff. 1) When photos are loaded on to my MBP using iPhoto three different copies are made. Data - Original - Modified. Are all of these really necessary? Even when i haven't modified any photos, the modified folder has a copy of all my photos in? 2) Is it possible to store all my photos on my external HD and access them in the same way through iPhoto? I only have an 80Gb HD in my MBP and am nearing 10Gb of photos already. 3) iPhoto only automatically loads my photos into it if i use the connection cable and my camera. Is there a way to get iPhoto to get my photos from a card in a card reader, say from an express card 34 slot reader? Sorry to bombard people with questions. Any input people can give me is most appreciated. Cheers!!
