Hello Mac Posters, I apologise in advance if I'm not on the right Forum. I have recently purchased a MacBookPro. So far it has been a huge learning experience trying to adjust after Windows 7! To make a long story short - I am passionate about order in my life - this must of course include order on my computer. I had complete order on my PC previously but I now find I had to partition my computer to accommodate an embroidery program which will not run on Mac. This was easily achieved, however, I now have a problem where I wish to put all my photos (about 15000) on my MacBook. These photos were all beautifully sorted into folders in Windows. The problem then arises because these photos in Windows were numbered and named i.e. '0002. Rebecca - May 2007'. I named these photos the way I wanted them listed, not necessarily in the order they were taken (especially when two or three cameras were used at any given time). I then move to Mac and load the photos - heck! I suddenly have a huge problem! I have lost all control over my photos! iPhoto decides to put them into events! Hello! I suddenly lose all control over where my photos appear. I suddenly find I cannot list my photos in alpha order. Absolutely no control - no options on how I can list them! Even having created several folders - say - 2007 - another Rebecca, the numbers and as such order that I had allocated in Windows folders - suddenly my no. 0002 can be listed way down the line in the 'Rebecca' folder because that photo is older than another. In effect I have lost all organisational powers! HELP! Please, I hope someone can help me here as I do like Mac but this is really frustrating me no end!
