Yeah, iPhoto and Aperture both use a data base (that iPhoto Library you see) for storing pics. Which means you don't have direct access to them through the Finder. You need to open the app and not mess with the iPhoto Library directly. You can open that Library in Finder for browsing, but I advise you don't as you take a chance on screwing up the data base and messing the whole thing up.

It's not bad for a lot of folks. Sort of like iTunes, iPhoto takes care of all the behind the scenes stuff - where they are stored, folder structure, etc.. so you don't have to worry about that side and just deal direct with your pictures.

If you're just getting into pictures and like the older iPhoto, the new iLife suite could well be worth the $49 asking price.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
