What do people generally recommend? I'm looking to set up my iPhoto library and I'm not sure how exactly I shoudl go about doing it....should I just reference by existing pictures folder? How exactly would that work? Or am I better off importing them all and backing up the individual files on a hard drive.

If I went the referenced file route would that just create a huge iphoto library file that would take up additional space?
QUOTE Thanks
