Just starting to learn pictures,  I have put a disc in the cd drive, the pictures have gone straight to Pictures in the finder, Can I import the pictures straight to i photo, instead of copying them from finder to i photo ?   Once I have transfered them from finder to i photo, is it a good idea to delete them from the finder. Any help on this subject would be really apprieciated.

    Check in System Preferences/CD's & DVD's that you have "Open iPhoto" selected for "When you insert a picture CD".


    Once photos are imported into iPhoto, you can safely delete them from your User/Pictures.


    be careful impoting photos into iPhoto. iPhoto may ask if you want to delete the photos from the source. I always say NO.
