    iphoto 08 and adobe lightroom
    if i were to use both programs to manage photos, does it create doubles in terms of hard drive space? is there anyway to edit on lightroom but just view on iphoto? i dont really know if im making any sense

    Hi there, I currently use Adobe lightroom to edit and iphoto to just view the photos.
    1) Created a designated folder for my pictures (then sub-folders to differentiate them)
    2) In Iphoto application go to: top bar, Iphoto > preferences > Advance tab . In the advance tab, make sure the "Importing: Copy files to iphoto library folder when adding to library " is UNSELECTED
    3) In Iphoto application go to: File > Import to library
    4) Find the folder that contains the pictures you want to be viewed and click 'import"

    By doing this, you will save from duplicating files on your hard drive. Remember that adobe lightroom will not make changes to the original picture file, but will save any alterations to it in it's "catalog" which will take up space.
