Hey guys,

Whenever I try to find my photos in iPhoto, I have to look it up by the name of the photo in the search instead of going under Pictures > iPhoto > Originals. Instead of iPhoto being a folder where my pictures are stored, it looks like this:



It's kind of a hassle when I'm trying to upload pictures and I'm having to look up each photo individually by name. Is there any way to make that into a folder?

Thanks!

If you change the view to *icon view* top left hand button then it will give you a lil thumbnail of every picture you have. Then if your running SL then the slider on the bottom right will bring the view to what ever size you want.

If its a movie and its big enuf you can even watch it in the icon view.

Hope this is what you are wanting

Don't go into the iPhoto library in finder!!! You are asking for trouble! And, if you are using the "original" photo, you are not using the most recently edited version.

The right way to upload is to go into iPhoto app, select the photo(s) you want to upload and either drag them to your desktop, or use the export function (this will give you options as to size, etc.) to export to your desktop and then upload from there. No risk to your library at all.

Or, use one of the many free plugins that will allow you to upload from iPhoto to your photo site.
