I took this photo:
Don't even think about watching this movie trailer if you've ever voted for a Republican.
[thanks to Richard Gayle for pointing to this]
The new version of iPhoto claims "25,000 Photos. Zero Waiting." So I bought the iLife package, which includes iPhoto 4.0.1. There is waiting, but much less than previous versions, which had become so slow with 6500 images that it was unusable. Sadly, iPhoto does not recognize RAW files, so I will not be able to use it to catalog my photos straight from the camera.
It works fine with Jpeg files, and slowly with Photoshop edited PSD files (albeit slowly), so I might be able to use it to catalog processed files. But Photoshop's Browser does a fine job of this, so I don't really see a use for iPhoto. It seems to be a good tool for use with digicams which produce native Jpeg files only, which I rarely do anymore.
Oh well, at least I got Garage Band.
