I really don't like iPhoto, wondering if you guys use any other programs in its place?
what dont you like about it
What are you looking to do? Just organize some pictures or are you looking for something much more robust like Lightroom or Aperture?
i want to hear a real compelling argument against iphoto
are you serious, anyone who has used anything other than iPhoto realizes how bad it is.
well depends and what you need/how you use it. I don't use it very much, but it is nicely integrated with the rest of the iLife suite. Works good for me, although I'm not much of a power user, if that's even the term I'm looking for. I don't doubt Aperture or Lightroom is WAY better for professional photographers.
cool, it does everything i could want from an image management program and then some
it serves its purpose and is integrated pretty tight with the OS and ilife.
i see no downside unless you just absolutely need something like lightroom or aperture. other than that, it probably does everything that the average user needs just fine.
He also might want to consider that lightroom costs $300 and if he's just organizing photos, that might be a little silly.
I just want to organize photos, view all my photos as thumbnails, etc
iphoto is too slow for me, just wondering if there is anything that is faster
what are you using for a computer? everything is instant for me
also, what image file sizes are you working with?
Intel Core duo 2.0
1 gb ram
photo sizes are a little over 2 mb
that configuration doesnt have enough nuts, especially if you arent using leopard and the most current iphoto. it has been optimized big time in the newest version. i am not telling you to run out and buy a new computer, but at least bump up your ram and upgrade all your software....
