Response to: RE: Comparison to Picasa?

Thanks for the reply. My entire workflow is also on OS X, XP is merely a supplment to stay fresh in supporting family and friends and such (though I used to make a good living supporting Bill's empire).

For the benefit of all the iLife'05 apps, I'll buy it. I am especially interested in iPhoto 5, so again, thanks for the "review".

It would be nice to hear from others on Picasa 2. I know Pogue has a blurb on it and iPhoto - he gives the editing edge to Picasa, fwiw.

    I don't have iPhoto 5 yet but saw some people comparing Picasa to it so I did a quick look at the application against iPhoto 4 as it relates to storing and sharing photos and there was absolutely no comparison.

    I left editing alone because I knew how much things were changing with iPhoto 5 vs 4 and also because I don't see that as the primary function of iPhoto. I'm still cleaning it up but you are welcome to take a look at what I saw.

      You make some good points in your piece, especially the one about integration with other apps. iLife 05 and iWork take this to a new level.

      Bottom line for me is, if you're a Mac person and like the way your Mac thinks, iPhoto fits in the picture nicely.
