    So...iLife, main reason I changed to a Mac in 2007, still learning though :)

    iTunes is for playing, tagging and organising Music, podcast, iTMS content

    iPhoto is for tagging, organising, sorting, printing Photos

    iMovie is for editing home recorded/personal movies, what about organising?

    What I mean is where do people organise their home movies after editing? i want to now start doing my home movies, after completing my music. What app do I use?

    I'm going to import the movies (various old ones from Hi8 tape, old iPhone/mobile phone clips, and HD AVCHD Lite from my TZ7 Digi Camera. After I've done this where do I organise them? can I tag them, eg like photos for places etc?

    What does everyone else do please?

    Anyone have any suggests?

    I am also thinking the same thing. I've got Aperture for semi-pro shots (and archiving older photos), iPhoto for photos, iTunes for tv shows and movies (including those that have been through iMovie). But I don't want to swamp iTunes with 100's of 30 second long kids home movies. I currently have them in iPhoto, but as a lot are from an old camera they don't work on the Apple TV, so slowing down iPhoto for the sake of having there seems pointless.

    Anyone care to share their ways?

    Thanks, Niall
