I'm kind of a pack-rat when it comes to pictures. I save a LOT of stupid/funny pictures I come across on the Internet which I usually just dump to a folder on my desktop. Is there a way to set up iPhoto 08 to auto-import those photos whenever I open it up?

Why use a folder when you can do it directly. If you right click a photo you should get the option to save to iPhoto automatically..
(This assumes safari 3.1 is being used )

Automater & Folder Action combo perhaps.

If somebody doesn't come up with a solution first, I need to find my iLife disc and get iPhoto on my Mac to see what the possibilities are and check back.

When I googled "autoimport iPhoto" this thread is returned as the second result, but it doesn't provide a satisfactory solution to the original post. Until now.
This article from Macworld describes a drag-and-drop solution to batch-importing photos into iPhoto without repeatedly opening iPhoto.
