Hey everyone :)

Im just curious, Does iPhoto have a limit to the amount of photos it can organise?

I see users with thousands of photos and so with my collection of only 800ish, Im not worried yet but with me going to Uni soon, My library will be sure to grow and i would rather know about issues now then have to sort them out later!

Hope everyone is having a good day :)

ilife 05 - iphoto 05 - has a limit of 25,000 photos

ilife 06 - iphoto 06 - has a limit of 250,000 photos

obiovusly if your hard drive cant manage 250,000 photos becase of capacity then you can get that many.

hope this helps.

You can have more than one library, in case you feel that having only one library is too limiting for you ... press Option as you click iPhoto's icon in the Dock....

Hey thanks for the replys :)

250,000 Photos is definitly a long way away from my current 800ish so i think im ok for quite some time!

Thanks once again!

You both have it (as you were both helpful!) :)
