Hi Derek,

very interesting article, and one that was very timely for me, as I'm getting to that stage now.

One thing that I wanted to ask you, as you're a pro photographer, do you do your editing (photoshopping) etc before importing the images to iphoto.

As a new entrant to the world of digital imaging, It seems to me that I would want to do all my deletions and editing/levelling etc in photoshop (elements 2) using the it's own browser before importing the folder full of final images to iphoto. The originals go on a separate cd/dvd for archiving.

Just wondered what your opinion was.

Many thanks,

Justin Peer.

    No, I edit images after uploading to iPhoto. It's easy. Just set your iPhoto preferences so that when you double-click on a thumbnail, it opens the picture in your favorite image editor. You can then make your adjustments there. When you save, those changes are recorded back to iPhoto. It's a really nice feature that's been around from the start. Hope this helps.
