Response to: Tip 9 - necessary?

Is it necessary? No. A good idea? Yes. Everytime I'm going to edit a picture that changes the nature of the original, I duplicate. In iPhoto, such changes would include cropping, b&w, brightness, & contrast. I do this because often times I need to use both the unedited version and the edited version independently. With cropping, it's not unusual for me to have multiple duplicates. If you use a tool like PixelNhance, which can edit & save pics in the library by dragging them from iPhoto, it's also a good idea to keep a copy of the original. The only time I don't duplicate is for red-eye correction.
