It would really help to list some of the problems you've had with it, so we know what you don't like about it.
I second that. Lightroom for me.What I dislike about iPhoto is the way it keeps track of things. Difficult to find anything if you do not use iPhoto; and almost impossible to archive.
Yes. If you do not use iPhoto, it's difficult to find anything.What I dislike about iPhoto is the way it keeps track of things. Difficult to find anything if you do not use iPhoto
Umm...ok.and almost impossible to archive.
I don't know what you are doing, but all my iPhoto imports are sorted by Year folders, and within those Year folders are subfolders with the Roll names. From within iPhoto, it's very easy to print contact sheets of each roll. Back-up and archiving is just as simple with drag and drop.I import using image capture(OSX) or just drag and drop(OS9). Originals are stored by year in one folder with subfolders. After trashing the worst images I end up with forty originals in each subfolder. I make an index print of each subfolder using Graphic Converter. I do this before I do any image manipulations. I print the indexes making it ridiculously easy to track down a particular image. Back-up or archiving can now be accomplished with a simple drag and drop of that years main folder.
iPhoto maintains the original photo, and only alters a copy.Everything after that is done with copies of the originals. I use iPhoto only for slide shows and it is great for that.
Seeing how GraphicConverter isn't a photo library utility, I can't even imagine how you can compare the two.I detest iPhoto as well. GraphicConverter all the way for me.

Holy Crap, Pamela! I started a thread like this (though much more balanced) about iWeb, and I'm still nursing my wounds from the daggers thrown.You know, I don't bitch and complain about apple stuff.
Pelao, FYI, under iPhoto's preferences you can set an "alternate" editing application for your photos - so a double-click on an image can launch Photoshop or anything else you'd like to use for photo manipulation.3. I prefer PS's more extensive and precise editing abilities,
Yes, I know: but I still prefer my own filing system and bridge or LR for managing images.Pelao, FYI, under iPhoto's preferences you can set an "alternate" editing application for your photos - so a double-click on an image can launch Photoshop or anything else you'd like to use for photo manipulation.
