    iPhoto Help needed
    Hi,

    I have a network drive (Western Digital My Book World edition 2 - 1TB) and I store all my digital photo's on this drive. I realised that iphoto was importing the images to my iMac but I want to keep the files on the network drive but still import them to iphoto. How do I achieve this as I don't want all my photos stored on the iMac itself as well as or instead of the network drive.

    Macbook Pro, 4GB RAM, 250GB HD
    Open up iPhoto,
    Go to Preferences and click the advanced tab, then uncheck the tick box that says:
    "Copy items to iPhoto Library"

    Hope this helps

    Hi Zigdog,

    Cheers for that, I am new to Mac (as you probably guessed) with simple issues like this but having been a PC (Windows) user for 15 years and never used a mac I am glad to have made the switch even if some old (PC) habits are hard to remove.

    No worries,

    Glad that I could help. I made the switch about 2 years ago and had endless questions about mac, so it's nice to be able to share what it took me many painful hours to figure out.
