A few problems with the "Apple" way
I have a few problems with the Apple way that seems to disrupt the way I handle my photos
1 - I use a service called MY DROPBOX. With it, anything that goes into a folder called MY DROPBOX DOCUMENTS automatically syncs with a cloud server. Then I can access these documents from any of my other computers...work computer, home computer, laptop, iPhone, etc. Without having to think about it I keep all my files on all comptuers up to date. And if any ever crash...no big deal, I can always just sync with the online DROPBOX.
It's been a great way to have all my photos available to me all the time on multiple computers. But now that I've switched to Mac, the pictures all go to this iphoto library file/folder, and I can't keep it in my dropbox so they automatically sync. Any way around this that doesn't involve going into this folder every time, copying the pictures I just imported, then moving a copy into my dropbox, etc.?
2 - I use photoshop to create mini versions of my photos for facebook, web, etc. When I automate shrinking and adjusting photos, Photoshop places the new photos within the current folder, in a new folder it creates called JPEG. Well now iPhoto has folders of all my events and then it has about 300 JPEG folders, since those folders were originally placed in the event folder by photoshop.
3 - I love that I can upload photos to facebook or web through iPhoto, but is there a way to specify that the photos should be shrunk and how? If I take a hundred photos that are 5MB each, I don't want to upload half a gig of photos to facebook.
If someone can give me help on these three items, I will be won over by the "Apple" way!!!
