Hi Linda

iPhoto can't be "full" unless your Int HD is full. That is, it can be as big as your Int HD. It's infinitely expandable in that sense.

As a matter of interest, did you try the...

Right. That strongly suggests that you are not importing to iPhoto at all, but to your picture folder—whatever that is. Did you create a Picture Folder for this purpose?

I'm with Craig in thinking that MacKeeper may be the root problem here. There has possibly been more written about MacKeeper than almost any other app. Many regard it as pernicious, malware and...

Hi jacew

Apart from Launchpad, there are one or two swift ways of launching an app which might be of assistance or can be ignored, as you choose. They are inbuilt to OS X.

An ageing juvenile? Well, in my case 3 years short of the biblical three score and ten.

Oh I do keep my backups up to date. I'm a touch obsessive about backups. It would take multiple catastrophes to bring me down. Perhaps, I've overreacted to the press, or at least...
