UPGRADE TO IPHOTO 4 OR MORE

The Annoyance:

Now that I have few hundred photos, iPhoto 2 is so slow that I'm afraid my kids will graduate before I get to see their school photos.

The Fix:

It's time to bite the $50 bullet and buy the latest version of iLife, which is the only way to upgrade to iPhoto 4. iPhoto 4 (there is no Version 3) is a major rewrite that has drastically changed how the application works under the hood. The speed increase is significant. Scrolling, zooming, and sorting all are faster than before, and you can now have up to 25,000 images in your iPhoto library with negligible effect on performance. I haven't tried adding that many images, but adding a few hundred at a time doesn't phase iPhoto 4's database structure.
