iPhoto is NOT scriptable! It does support being a source for Drag and Drop, which allows you to drag items to other applications and scripts, which is Apple's current workaround to add functionality through droplets. The iPhoto app itself has NO scripting support, either through its own dictionary or even the standard handful of required AppleEvents; i.e. you cannot even drag files onto the app's icon in the Finder to launch it with those files. It would be great to be able to script sequences of iPhoto operations, but in the 1.0 release it is just not possible.
