1/
If I copy pictures from my camera directly into the pictures folder on my mac and then import them from the pictures folder into iPhoto, do I end up with the original pictures being duplicated?

2/
If I import my pictures straight from the camera into iPhoto where are the imported pictures to found in Finder?

Any advice welcome please!

1) Yes, iPhoto copies the files into it's own package in the ~/Pictures directory.

2) They're in ~/Pictures/iPhoto\ Library Don't mess with them in the file system, or you'll break iPhoto.

Thanks Folks! I have pretty much got the message. I will leave the iPhoto library well and truly alone.

Thanks again!

Ok here is my problem...I have 3,000 pics/vids on my iphone. The phone is full, and I need to get them to my seagate backup. So, I plug in the phone, and I stumble through iphoto (06) to download to my imac. I can't tell what happened, because they all seem to be duplicated, and NOT in order. How do I tell if I have downloaded them all (so I can clear iphone for next round of photos/vids), and how do I then proceed to get them off my imac, and on to a backup? Thanks...

Doesn't answer your question but why did you import them into iPhoto and not move them to their own folder or direct to the Seagate drive?

As to where they are depends on how the preferences are set in iPhoto - see advanced tab to see if they are copied into iPhoto or not.

Happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get.
