Is there a way to by-pass those darned themes when e-mailing photo's? They are a pain in the neck.

    I'm with you. I would like a way to use the "old" email iPhoto feature in addition to the new themes oriented way. Any ideas?

    you can select the photos and drag them to the mail icon in the Dock

    Or search the forums for Terence Devlin's post on how to create a "service" that does it

    I bought my Mac specifically for the photo program and how awesome it is. I do NOT want to have "search for some forum to find out how to create a 'service' that does it". COME ON APPLE, step up to the plate and FIX this. Also, now when I import 'Events' they end up at the beginning of my library instead of the end. I have thousands of photos and hundreds of events - this just messes everything up!

    1 - this is strictly a volunteer user to user forum - not a RANT at Apple forum - no one here can change for FIX anything - we can in many cases help you learn how to do things if you are interested in asking questions and learning

    2 - if your events are not sorted how you want them look under the View menu ==> sort events and set the desired sort order

    3 - and it would be a worthwhile investment of time to take the iphoto tutorials - http://www.apple.com/findouthow/photos/ - they are very helpful and will save you a lot of time and frustration.

    There, there, I'll save you the bother of serching.

    If you don't like the new ways that iPhoto handles emailing then you can access the old way with a small change in how you work:

    1. Drag the pics from the iPhoto Window to the Mail icon in the Dock.

    or

    2. Use the Photo browser in Mail - or any Media browser in the entire OS

    You can then resize the image in the iPhoto Window

    file size in mail

    Finally, you can make a simple OS Service to to automate the procedure. For more on this have a read of this:
