    Instead of manually importing photos into iPhoto, is it possible for iPhoto to "watch" a folder for changes and automatically import photos?

    For example, if I add photos to my Pictures folder (or a subfolder), then iPhoto automatically sees that and imports the photos.

    It's possible on Ubuntu, which is why I'm asking.

    There is an Apple supported utility for Aperture called Hot Folder that works nicely. I think its just a script, maybe it could be modified for Iphoto? I use it with an eye-fi card for automating picture uploads to my MBP.
