    Default iBook and iPhoto

    iPhoto is great for archiving large numbers of photographs and using them to
    produce a crude, images-only slideshow or for printing/e-mailing images for
    someone else. We've found plenty of uses for it here.

    Our iPhoto library outgrew the iBook's internal hard disk a long time ago. I
    dragged the app to our tiny external 40 GB FireWire disk, "the Cutie", and
    set up the new library there. Since then, it has doubled in size to
    approximately 4,300 photos.

    As one might expect, iPhoto has been launching more slowly of late. The app
    runs more slowly as well. Is the laptop's 500 MHz processor stretched to its
    limits, or is it the limitations of only 384 MB of physical RAM. Would more
    RAM help?

    Try iPhoto Librarian -- it lets you create and manage several libraries.
