How to improve iPhoto speed

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Rob at Mac Net Journal follows up my earlier post by pointing out out some tips for managing large iPhoto databases from O'Reilly. I should really take some of that advice.

Of course, Apple should really just make iPhoto work better with large databases of photos. I've gathered 5400+ pictures in less than two years (including old archives), and while I take a lot of photos, that's what digital photography encourages, and I'm only using 3-megapixel images that average about 1 MB apiece. Once 6- or 10- or 14-megapixel cameras become commonplace, their pictures will suck up computer resources like there's no tomorrow. But there will be a tomorrow, and we need to work with those files.
