Review: iPhoto 5

Review: iPhoto 5: “Reviewing iPhoto 5 and Picasa 2, Walt Mossberg writes for the Wall Street Journal, ‘Both programs are packed with good features and have been significantly upgraded in their new versions. But iPhoto is the better of the two — mainly because, unlike Picasa and most other competitors, it totally frees users from understanding the computer’s file-and-folder system.’ [Mar 30, 2005]”
(Via Apple Hot News.)
Again, read this to understand what Apple is doing so much better. I played with both, using Adobe PhotoAlbum for storing/cataloguing images, so i am very eager to see that article… Updated: After reading the article, it pretty much boils down to the fact that you can organize Photo’s anyway you want without understanding the underlying filesystem, or even caring about it. Accidently, this is very true for most basic organizing functions i perform with my photos as well. Mainly though, i think this is true because you want to have an organisation method at hand that works on the basic operating system level, and that is, because you basically do not trust your application to perform all functions to your satisfaction on the long run. A sad fact
