very interesting article, and one that was very timely for me, as I'm getting to that stage now.
One thing that I wanted to ask you, as you're a pro photographer, do you do your editing (photoshopping) etc before importing the images to iphoto.
As a new entrant to the world of digital imaging, It seems to me that I would want to do all my deletions and editing/levelling etc in photoshop (elements 2) using the it's own browser before importing the folder full of final images to iphoto. The originals go on a separate cd/dvd for archiving.
Just wondered what your opinion was.
