The large "places" display consolidates pins to avoid a messy display - try zooming in very close on it and see if more pins do not appear

Currently Being ModeratedMay 1, 2009 4:53 PM (in response to Robens)I'm going from memory since this is done from work, but I believe you have to use semi-complete addresses (IE., 'Chicago' by itself won't work, you need to use 'Chicago, Il.' or 'Chicago, Illinois'. IF the address is for a 'Place' iPhoto knows (and it knows hundreds if not thousands of places) it will pop up and allow you to choose that location. If nothing happens, that probably means iPhoto doesn't know that 'Place' and you need to provide a more complete or more accurate name for it. Like I say, try getting in the habit of using at least a City and State... you can also choose the 'Locate on Map' feature and it will actually show a map of the place and you can Move the Pin to exactly where you want it, choose from Satellite View, Terrain View, Map view, zoom in, out, or enlarge or reduce the area covered by the Pin (the Blue Circle around the pin.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 11, 2009 4:34 AM (in response to Vic Schmidt)What is exactly the use of the blue circle? Not in the place area I look for a sattelite view but in detail with my picture. I can not get the level of detailed information less when I click on + or - button.
How can I achieve that?imac Core 2 Duo 24" 2.8Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.7)

It groups photos inside the circle to the location of the pin - I recommend you take the tutorial - http://www.apple.com/findouthow/photos/#places

Can you describe exactly what you are doing please - in most situations that will move in or out on the map
