Well I finally got my Imac today! I have been busy all day playing with it and installing CS4 and Lightroom and everything else I needed to download and what not. But I finally got around to snapping a picture of my office desk. And yes this thing is freaking huge, especially compared to my 17" HP notebook I've been using.

Nice set up, I am looking to add a desktop mac to my lineup for my photo editing to go along with my macbook pro, but can't nail down exactly what I want. Please keep us updated with how well it works for you, would love to hear how well it works with editing. You plan to calibrate the monitor? Love to hear how that goes..... OH, look, one of my post's is now immortalized in another thread!!!! ha ha...

Thank's Rocketman, so far it is doing extremely well using lightroom v2.3 and CS4. The liquify tool in CS4 does lag a little bit but I only have 4gb of RAM at the moment. Plan on making it 8gb by the end of the summer.

I will say though it has been somewhat of a challenge trying to figure out the organization system. That is a big bummer for me as I keep everything on my PC's very organized with folders and on the Mac it won't let me save to the folders I make. So I have to save stuff on the desktop then drag it in the older I want it in. Maybe I'm just an idiot and don't know how to do it, which is possible.

If you select Save As, it brings up a file selector so u can navigate to any folder for that initial save, after that Save or Command S will just overwrite changes to same destination.

When I hit save as in say CS4 it will bring up the finder area's to save in. It won't let me put stuff in a folder if it isn't right on the top level of finder.

And sorry for not replying to your PM I've been really busy retouching images today.

Nope that is where it takes me to all the finder stuff. If I click on a folder that I have other folders in it doesn't bring up the other folders deeper in side the main folder.

I don't understand it either. When I save stuff it only shows that first column of folders after the regular finder stuff where the desktop and macHD is and stuff. If I click the a folder in that second column nothing shows up in the third column.

Edit: Nevermind....I'm just an idiot like I said earlier. When I copied my image files from my time capsule I didn't realize I had duplicate folders. One set of folders didn't have anything else in them. Sorry for wasting your time colin.
