I depend on 3rd party apps and plug-ins when using iPhoto. I thought I'd give you a quick rundown on how they're working with version 6.

  • iPhoto Library Manager -- I'm still using version 2.0, which I like a lot. It's been fine in iPhoto 6, allowing me to switch among my libraries and create new ones. Here's the official word from Brian's site: "Photo Library Manager 3.1 and earlier are partially compatible with iPhoto 6. You can still use iPhoto Library Manager to create new libraries and switch between them, but the album copying, merging, and importing features are not currently functional. An update for iPhoto Library Manager will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks to provide full compatibility with iPhoto 6."
  • Photon 1.1.1 -- Everything seems fine with this plugin for posting iPhoto images on Movable Type and WordPress blogs.
  • BetterHTMLExport 2.1 -- This wonderful web page plugin that I also use for creating navigation on CDs works the same as always with iPhoto 6.

If you're using 3rd party apps with iPhoto 6 that I haven't covered here, will you post a comment and let us know how they're working for you?
