Q&A

Q1: I have a digital camera, but it’s not compatible with iPhoto. What should I do?
A1: If your digital camera isn’t compatible with iPhoto, Apple recommends using a peripheral device to read the camera’s memory card directly. The type of storage media used by your camera dictates whether you need a PCMCIA Flash Card reader or some other kind.
Q2: Can I use another photo-editing program on the images I’ve imported to iPhoto?
A2: Yes. To open an iPhoto image file in another program, click and drag an image thumbnail from the Organize view onto the icon for the photo-editing program. If you plan to edit with an outside program frequently, you can go into the iPhoto Preferences and set images to open automatically in the outside program when double-clicked.

Keep in mind that changes saved to an original image from an outside program replace the original file in iPhoto’s files, so you cannot revert to the original image as you normally would. It might be best to make a duplicate before you begin editing.

If you choose to further edit an image that has already been altered from within iPhoto, the image is already a copy, so you can revert to the original version. To check whether a file is an original or a copy before you begin editing, look at the File menu to see whether Revert to Original is an available option.
