I spent 3 hours yesterday to read the whole "Help" session of iPhoto but couldn't find the answer of the following, Could anybody please help me

After I successfully import a photo (say picture X taken at 1.15pm on 24/07/2013), when I try to find this picture X through finder, it appears SEVEN files of same photos as follows.

1. picture X.JPG (capital letter of JPG) with big MB size (the biggest of 7) and timing at the time I took the shot (1.15pm)

2. picture X. jpg (small letter of jpg) with very small size like 50kb and timing at 2hr after the shot is taken. (3.15pm)

3. same name as "2" above (same size) but timing is 1 mins plus of i.e. 3.16pm.

4. picture X_1024.jpg (small letter of jpg) with medium size like 300kb and timing at 2hr after the shot is taken (3.15pm)

5. same name as "4" above (same size too) but timing is 1 mins plus of it i.e.3.16pm

6. Picture X_face0.jpg (small letter of jpg) with close up of the face of the person in picture. timing 2 hr after the shot is taken i.e. 3.15pm

7. same name as "6" above (same size same image) but timing is 1 mins plus i.e. 3.16pm


Picture 1 is in folder of iphoto library --> Master --> 2013 -->07-->24--->20130724-???(a set of like serial no.)

Picture 2-7 is in folder of iPhoto library--> Thrumbnail-->2013-->07--->24--->20130724 ### (a set of another serial like no.) --> ###### (a set of combination of letter + figures)

Some picture doesn't carry photo 6 & 7 !?

The problem here is, to be blunt, you.

Stop looking for photos in Finder. This is exactly the approach that caused Apple to finally HIDE the iPhoto Library away so people couldn't find it.

Open iPhoto. There is your picture. Do *****ANYTHING***** you want to do to that photo THERE. Never in Finder. Stop messing with the iPhoto Library database or you ***will*** lose your photos. The end.

I thought chas_m was a bit hard with you there., although his answer as always is correct.
May I recommend one of the Tutors for iPhoto from the App Store. I found these very helpful when I started using iPhoto

I might add here that the use of iPhoto is optional. Most new users of the Mac and OS X in general either love or hate iPhoto and\or learn to use it. I've learned to use iPhoto but that doesn't mean I like it....

thanks all. No hard feeling at all. i love straight forward answer.

Chas_m : The fact is that I NEED to refer to finder when using word, ppt etc to insert file. When I do command "insert file", there're 2 options: 1)"photo browser " direct to iPhoto library but all images are JPG i.e. big file size, 2)"picture from file" could give me the choice of the above "7" options i.e. pasta a much smaller file size and this save a lot of time and space (I don't have to compress it afterwards to send).

You seem to be knowing quite well on iPhoto Library. do you have the answer of why there are '7" format then? I'm very curious to know

Thank you for taking the answer in the spirit intended, which was to be helpful.

That's correct. Simply resize the image to fit in your Office document. JPGs are not large documents, they are highly compressed already and when you save the Office document, it will (if the preferences are set to do so) adjust the resolution to the optimum for your presentation, thus avoiding the large file sizes.

That's probably the low-resolution thumbnail file used when you are perusing the iPhoto library but haven't opened a specific picture yet.

Assuming you are using iPhoto 11 there are two tutors on the UK App Store both priced under 3. I assume this would be the same on the US store only of course priced in dollars.
Just search for "iPhoto tutor"
