I’ve had a Mac for at least a couple of years now and even though iPhoto was included I hadn’t used it properly. Only on a few occasions have I imported photos directly into it. Finally, this weekend I began organizing photos that I transferred from the G4 and began importing them into iPhoto on the G5 (and deleting duplicates).

While I knew it was a good program I must admit that I’m even more impressed now that I’m using it to organize my photos. I especially like the ability to add keywords and then build Smart Albums that can automatically add photos from the Library based on certain characteristics such as assigned keywords. For example, I can tag a photo with the keyword Friends and it shows up in a Smart Album that looks for that keyword.
