    In preparation for the Great iPad Arrival of next week, I would like to prepare my photo galleries for easy upload. Here's the problem, I haven't used iPhoto.

    I'm a photographer, so I have folders of raw files, edits, and watermarked images. Is there a way to have iPhoto automatically search out images of a certain size (or something life that) to make my gallery organization easier and more expeditious?

    Thanks!

    Bad news: I don't know

    But. Good News: the IPad reads and displays RAW!

    iPhoto is amazing with RAW, so that's cool. But I don't want to carry RAW files, just the edited full sized photos!

    You mentioned that the images are organized into different folders. So you should be able to just import certain folders into iPhoto, thus leaving out the folder with RAW files.

    Here's where it gets complicated.

    The folder layout is:
    Model name>Date>Edit

    There are more folders in the date, so it's each edit folder I want, and they're all called "Edit" (others are "TIFF", "mark", and "small"). So is my best course of action to drag all the "edit" folders into it and just rename them manually?

    Well, I don't actually have a mac right here, but from reading similar questions online, there is a work-around:

    "make a smart folder that pulls the contents of all of those folders IF they are jpegs only. Then import from there."

    "Are 10.4's Smart Folders useable outside the Finder? If so, you could create one that only includes kind:JPEG Images from a particular location. Give iPhoto the Smart Folder to import."

    Skimmed those links, they look promising.

    Thanks!

    I've done so many searches for this, but can't seem to get the parameters of it quite right.

    Following up:

    Got the smart folder set up. Tweaking those results right now. Looks promising. I'll keep this thread updated. :)
