    Talking Help with iphoto
    On my imac it keeps coming up with start up disk full I presume this is due to the large amount of pic's I currently have on it, So i purchased a external hard drive to put these pic's on is there a way like on a PC that you can back up in one location and still access these pic's through iphoto from the ext hd. I warn you I am new to using a mac so as basic as possible please.

    Many Thanks

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
